I’m forwarding an email from Lenore’s daughter with sad news of Bob’s passing on 10/2. He was a true running icon! He ran well over 500 marathons plus many ultras. He used to be FAST! I remember many marathons in Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Yakima, Victoria, Seaside, Chelan, Tri Cities, and more, and even 2 Marine Corps marathons where we ran, visited and caught up on each others lives, celebrated Bob’s Birthday with a cake that Lenore brought to the Portland Marathon awards ceremony. And I listened to Bob’s, Jack’s and Mel’s stories. They were such a competitive bunch! Sweet memories!
Per Jan’s request, if you know anyone else who’s been friends with Bob over the years, please share this email.

Hello Friends and Fans of Bob Dolphin,
Bob passed away in the early morning hours of October 2nd, just two days shy of his 92nd birthday, while in the loving care of Highgate Senior Living in Yakima, WA. Their memory and hospice care was wonderful and very supportive of Bob. He was surrounded with love and by the many early birthday cards he received.
Funeral services for both Bob and Lenore will be held in Yakima this month and broadcast via webcam for those who live far away from Yakima or understandably prefer not to travel. If you are interested in attending in Yakima please RSVP as a light lunch will be served prior to the service and there is limited space due to COVID restrictions.
Our email list for the hundreds of marathoners who knew and loved Bob and Lenore is limited so please share this with your other running friends.
Our plan is to do a short celebration of life for both Lenore and Bob on Friday, April 1, 2022 as part of the Yakima River Canyon Marathon kick off the event before the race,
In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in Bob's name to the following charities:
Thank you so much for your long term friendship with Bob. We’re sure that Lenore had a marathon organized and waiting for him in heaven!
Warm regards and happy running,
The Six Minute Mile
Minute 1: Are today's children too soft?
