Robert H. “Bob” Vickers 1908 – 1984

Sole County Commissioner and Judge of the Ordinary 1952 – 1972
Probate Judge 1972 – 1984
With little concern for material things himself, he spent most of his adult life working to improve the lives of others. Though he had access to the rich and powerful, the lowest spoke on Fortune’s wheel had his regard. In more than 35 years in public life, he was often challenged but never defeated, removed from office by the undertaker. His memory will never be forgotten by those who knew him and his deeds and works will benefit the generations to come who did not.
