Robert Dean Brinker

Robert (Bob) Dean Brinker, born Ponca City, OK on January 3, 1944 lost his battle to cancer on March 16, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Effie Brinker, brother, Charles, and daughter, Julie.

Bob is survived by his wife, Anna Ray, son, Ron, daughters Janice and Kathy, brother Gene, step-son John Kyle Russell and their families including eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
He was blessed with many friends and was active in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Rotary International, Loyal Order of Moose, and Fraternal Order of Eagles. He retired in Carlsbad 15 years ago after spending a career as a Project and Engineering Manager at PCS Nitrogen. His career allowed him to call home to locations as far west as El Centro, CA and east as Louisville, KY and as far North as Dubuque, IA and south as Baton Rouge, LA and numerous locations in between, including Carlsbad, twice in the 1980’s. His work also allowed him to enjoy traveling to numerous locations around the world. His one true passion was playing golf and enjoying a strong bond with many friends; friends whose only wish was that he had taken more golf lessons.
