Friend, family man, coworker and life of the party, Robert Eugene Danforth, was many things to many people but to us we called him dad. To most of you, you knew him as Bobby. Born in Miami, Florida in the spring of 1960, April 28th to be exact, he got to live through some of the most awesome eras. He entered his eternal rest and gained his wings on April 23rd, 2021 in Winter Haven, Florida. He was world renowned for his lack of patience, not holding back his opinion and a knack for telling stories. With that said, he was genuine with a heart of gold and yet he sugar coated nothing. His extensive vocabulary was more than highly proficient at knowing more curse words than most people learn in a lifetime. He loved being goofy, telling jokes and making those around him laugh. The simplest pleasures in life brought him great joy. He loved a quiet evening with friends and family. He also enjoyed theme parks, movies and crazy tv shows. He took fashion cues from no one, his signature every day look was all his own. He retired from Wal-Mart after over 20 years of service. Since retiring he has had more time to spend with family and one of his favorite hobbies playing games and social apps on his iPad. He did everything and went everywhere with a diet Pepsi in one hand, a cigarette in the other and always knew the weather forecast. Bobby will be forever missed and survived by his children, Chris Danforth and Caley Angstadt, son in laws Zack Angstadt and Scott Winford, his brother Chuck Danforth and sister-in-law Beth Danforth, nephews Chas Danforth, Chase Danforth, nieces Bethany Danforth, Amber Danforth and grand-dogs Bruzer, Elphie and Fiyero. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Donald and Marjorie Danforth, his brother John Danforth and nephew Brandon Danforth. To all who loved him dearly and will never forget his tenacity, wit, charm, grace (when pertinent) and undying love. We will remember he is always with us in spirit and in our hearts.

Bobby’s visitation will be Friday, April 30th at 5pm, with his funeral service to follow at 6pm. His services will be held at:

Ott-Laughlin Funeral Home 645 W. Central Ave. Winter Haven, FL 33880

Instead of flowers, dad would hope that you will do a random act of kindness for someone less fortunate, help a local family or donate to a local charity.

I was with Bobby on one of the most happiest and important days of his life, I was there the day he became a father for the first time. The love and joy in his face was priceless. He was made to be a dad, that was truly his calling in life. Words can't express my sadness of his passing. My prayers are with his children.
