Robert “Bob” Bragge

01/07/1951 - 06/07/2022

Robert (Bob) Axel Bragge passed away at his residence on June 7, 2022, surrounded by his family and their love.

Bob was born January 7, 1951, in Cloquet, MN, to Elmer and Beulah (Fitzgerald) Bragge.

After meeting at the Bayfield, WI Applefest, Bob married Kerry Jo Bodovinitz on October 1, 1981 and enjoyed more than 40 years together.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Lillian (Harley) Ziebarth.

On June 7, 2022, our hearts will miss him always. His sense of humor will be remembered by anyone who knew him. He had the best (or worst) dad jokes. He will be missed more than ever by his wife, Kerry; his children, Melissa and Josh; and son-in-law, David. He loved his grandchildren: Madeline, Ethan and Amelia Hillman; and his heart also belonged to his many furry grandchildren. He is also survived by siblings: Helen (Jerry) Holsworth, Mary Ellen (Bob) Nicholson, Joanne (Dan) Miska and James Bragge; and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces.

A huge “thank you” goes to the Essentia-St. Mary’s East Range Hospice Team. Thank you for your compassion, dedication, kindness and guidance during this difficult time.

If you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, early detection and a correct diagnosis are critical. Getting a second opinion is always an option and could save your life.

At Bob’s request, the family will have a private gathering to celebrate his life.

Arrangements are with Range Funeral Home in Virginia.
