Robert James (RJ) Densely (Age 46)

Robert James (RJ) Densley was born on December 18th 1965 at Larsen Air Force Base in Moses Lake, Washington. He returned to the arms of our Heavenly Father on May 10th 2012 after suffering a sudden heart attack.

RJ graduated from Wilbur High School in 1984 and went on to earn his Business Management degree from WSU. RJ worked as a manager at the Spokane Valley Best Buy for the last eleven years where he touched many lives of co-workers and employees alike. He recently was excited about his new employment opportunity at Office Depot.

RJ loved life and loved his children deeply. The family fondly remembers RJ’s infectious smile and incredible sense of humor. He loved any and all activities; some of them safe, some of them bordering on extreme.

He is survived by his two children Nick and Kendall Densley, parents Terry and Katie Densley, sisters Teri Sue Reed (Ryan), Raechel Allen (Jon), uncle Dick Herman (Kay), and three nieces, Allison and Jessi Reed and Hannah Allen.

RJ leaves his family and friends with a perfect example of what it means to live a life filled with fun and laughter.

A memorial fund has been established in RJ’s name at the Wheatland Bank.

A Rosary will be held on Thursday May 17th at 7:00 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Wilbur, Washington. Graveside services will be held on Friday May 18th at 9:00 a.m. the Wilbur Cemetery followed by a Funeral Mass at 10:00 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with Father Mike Ishida, officiating. Please visit to sign the guestbook. Strate Funeral Home, Wilbur, WA is caring for the family.
