Bob Keller, a long-time Scouter, registered with Pack 87 in Mountain View and part-time assistant ranger at Boulder Creek Scout Reservation passed away suddenly last week of an apparent heart attack, according the Pacific Skyline Council Newsletter for the week of Sept. 9, 2013.
The newsletter continued:
Bob has always been a great resource at BCSR, helpful both as a volunteer and a staff member of the Pacific Skyline Council. He was an accomplished musician and a member of the San Francisco Folk Music Group, which holds semi-annual gatherings at BCSR on the 4th of July and Labor Day weekends.
Bob provided personal resources, support, and led campfires for many groups; especially for Cub/Parent weekends. Bob was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. He led many nature hikes and supported several community events at the camp. His knowledge and his efforts to introduce both youth and adults to the beautiful environs of Boulder Creek and the Santa Cruz Mountains will be sorely missed.
Bob is survived by his wife Pam, son, and grandson.
A well-attended memorial in his honor was held at the Boulder Creek Scout Reservation on Sunday, September 8.
