Obituary for Robert "Baltimore Bob" Yeasted

Baltimore Bob Yeasted, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend passed from this life to his heavenly home on Wednesday, February 24, 2016. Bob was surrounded by his loving family as he passed away at his home in Vacaville, California, after his hard fought battle with cancer.
Born on June 18, 1943 in Baltimore, Maryland, to Eugene and Juel O’Brien Yeasted, Bob grew up in Sparrows Point, Maryland where shortly after turning 17 in 1960, he joined the U.S. Army. Bob proudly served in the infantry and spent the majority of his active duty time stationed in Germany. He was honorably discharged in 1963.
A long time Baltimore Orioles and Colts/Ravens fan, Bob was filled with stories about his favorite Baltimore sports heroes. Nearly every conversation had with Bob somehow made its way into Baltimore sports.
In 1966, Bob moved to California beginning a long career with the federal government at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. Bob became a respected and well-known figure at Mare Island where he promoted into the ranks of supervision and management in the Public Works Department Shop 03 and Work Center 29. Bob’s long association with Mare Island and the people that worked there was a highlight in his life. Many stories were told about the good ole days at the Yard over a hot cup of coffee. Bob loved Mare Island and till the end, claimed the blue smoke stack at the Mare Island power plant to be his own…no one argued that point. When you see the blue stack, think of Bob. He finished his federal career with the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, CA retiring in January 2001.
Bob married the love of his life, Janice Zajdel in 1974 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. They were happily married for 42 years and demonstrated to all that knew them what being married means. There was no greater love than that between Bob and Janice. Together they built a loving home, full of laughter, to nurture and raise their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Jimmy. He is survived by his loving wife Janice; his son and daughters, Sandy Zajdel, Robert Yeasted, Teresa Zajdel and Renee Yeasted; his sisters and brothers Delores Reuter, Marilyn White, Tom Yeasted and Gene Yeasted; his grandchildren Corey (Kim), Shanna, Jessica, Keith and Lauren; and his great-grandchildren Jaxson, Presley and Kali.
A viewing will be held at McCune Garden Chapel, 212 Main St., Vacaville on Tuesday, March 1 from 5:00 PM with a Rosary at 7:00 PM. A funeral mass will be held at Saint Joseph Catholic Church, 1781 Marshall Rd, Vacaville on Wednesday, March 2 at 9:30 AM. Burial will follow at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road, Dixon, CA. The family will be greeting friends and relatives at the Dixon American Legion Post 208, 231 N 1st St, Dixon, following the ceremony.
Condolences may be sent to the Yeasted family at 6062 Vanden Rd., Vacaville, CA 94533
