Robert C. See 75, passed away Wednesday, August 7, 2019. He was born August 25, 1943, in Enid, Oklahoma, to Max D. See and Mildred (Reim) See. He was raised in Washington, Iowa, graduating from high school in Washington and attending college at Phillips University in Enid earning a bachelor of arts degree in music education. Being a vocal major, he was one of the best bass singers ever - ask anyone. Bob joined the Navy in 1967 during the Vietnam War, serving with the 2nd Platoon, Delta Company, 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division - also known as "The Walking Dead." He served as a frontline Senior Corpsman manning the northernmost perimeter of the northernmost outpost in Vietnam known as Con Thien, which was within artillery range of the North Vietnamese Army. During the Vietnam War, this battalion sustained the highest casualty rate in Marine Corps history. In 1968, he was transferred to the 1/9 Battalion Aid Station in Dong Ha. Upon leaving Vietnam, he was assigned to the Main Navy Dispensary in Washington, DC as part of a medical team with responsibility for aide to the White House and Capitol. It was in Washington, DC where Bob met his wife of 47 years, Anita (Scholze) See. This union produced two wonderful children, Bryan See and Jennifer See. Bob was the vocal music teacher in Kingfisher, Oklahoma for several years before moving to Anita's hometown of Rogers, Arkansas. He served on the Rogers City Council from January 1991 to December 1992 and embraced everything Razorback-related. He retired from Rogers Superior Industry in 2005 after 15 years. He was an active member of First Baptist Church in Lowell, Arkansas. He sang beautifully with the choir, occasionally playing either his trombone or guitar and he also taught Sunday School. His sweet, gracious and humorous spirit will be cherished by many and his stories will be retold for years to come. Survivors include his wife, Anita, and his children, Bryan (wife, Tiffany) of Rogers and Jennifer (fiance, Robert Brown) of San Diego, California. He's also survived by grandchildren Addison, Whitaker, and Conaughey See as well as his brothers, William See (wife, Kathy) of Ft.
