Robert “Bobby” Terrence Csargo, 63, died on May 15, 2019, at his home in Perryville, Ark., after being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2009.
He has donated his body for scientific research in Houston, Texas, to help find a cure for colon cancer.
He graduated from Hibbing High School and the University of Minnesota with a bachelor of science in biology. He became a wildlife staff officer for the United States National Forest Service. Much of his time in later life was volunteered to the Heffer Society and working as a substitute teacher to children. Bob was especially proud on leading efforts in forest-fighting in many western states. For him, forestry service also entailed placement of wildlife in their natural habitat, working on land management and fisheries development.
Bobby was a loving, caring person with a quick wit and an infectious smile. He gave a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Planting vegetables, flowers and trees gave him great pleasure. Camping, fishing and boating were some of his favorite things to do.
He will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by many. Bobby… you will remain in our hearts forever. May you be surrounded by heavenly angels always.
He is survived by his mother, Martha Csargo of Side Lake; brother, Steven (Melanie) of Lake Carlos, Minn., and Richard Csargo of Side Lake.
He was preceded in death by his father, Steve Csargo; uncle, Alex Csargo; aunt, Adeline Csargo; his paternal grandparents, Steve and Rose Csargo; and his maternal grandparents, Isak and Ina Sallila.
