Bobby Dean Baldwin peacefully went home to be with the Lord and his beloved wife, Janet on Friday, September 2nd at his home in Temecula. He was surrounded by his loving children, Susan, Nancy and Steven. He was born on April 12, 1927 in Denver, Colorado to George and Carrie Baldwin. His mother was a devout Christian and Bob came to the Lord at a very young age. Even as a very young boy he loved the Lord and developed strong principles that would carry him through all of his life to be the good, honest, righteous man that he would become. He grew up in Ojai, California with his three sisters and two brothers. Bob was the youngest of the six siblings and although he was the biggest tease in their family, at five years old he was collecting newspapers and bottles to help the family. He learned the value of money and hard work, even at a young age. When Bob was 18 he joined the Navy, where he completed his high school education. After the war, Bob came back to Long Beach where he met the love of his life, Janet Ann Price. It was love at first sight and a love that only grew deeper with each passing year. They were married on January 20, 1948 and began a life that would bring them deep love, joy, success and happiness. From the beginning they were a team and together they built a beautiful life for their family. Bob started out in the service station business, and after hard work bought his own station. Janet went door to door with flyers and Bob worked seven days a week to make it a success. Several years later they moved to Rossmoor and Bob and Jan decided to sell the service station and open a restaurant … Me-n-Ed’s Pizza Parlor that was a thriving business from the day they opened the doors because of the hard work and long hours Bob and Jan put into the business. When Bob retired 17 years ago, he and Jan moved to Temecula where they were devoted grandparents and great grandparents and Bob was the adoring husband who, even when he was in failing health, took care of his beloved Jan in her later years. During that time Bob was diagnosed with prostrate cancer that had gone to the bone and given only a short time live. However, Bob’s deep faith and his belief that the Lord would heal him gave him 12 more years of life. He and Jan had an unwavering Faith and he spent the last years of his life witnessing to many in his own quiet way, encouraging them to come to the Lord and believe. The Lord was the center of their lives and he prayed not only for our family but for anyone who needed prayer. Bob was a man who loved the Lord, his wife and his family. He had uncompromising values, an unwavering faith, a loving, kind, non-judgmental heart (he never said a bad word about anyone) and for him, 'My way' was living his life the right way, God's way in every single thing in his life. He was a giant of a man with a gentle, loving heart. He was raised to be respectful and kind and patriotic. Although he was blessed with financial gain in his life, it came from hard work and dedication and strong principles. Money, time or age did not change him. He was a humble man who thanked God for all the blessings in his life but never complained when he encountered problems. He never waivered or faltered in standing strong and being righteous. He was a role model to his entire family. His sweet smile and gentleness will be missed. But his life and the way he lived it is his legacy to his family and everyone whose life he touched. Bob was preceded in death by Janet, his loving wife of 63 years; his children: Susan Pike, Nancy and Kenny Blackmore, and Steven and Judy Baldwin; ten grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations go to Project Touch, 30141 Antelope Road, D-103, Menifee, CA 92584. This is a non profit organization that reaches out to the homeless in Temecula Valley.
