Robert Isom, Dr. Bob, 86 of Oshkosh, peacefully departed from this world on the morning of Saturday February 6th, 2016.Born in DuQuoin, Illinois on August 30, 1929, Dr. Bob was the son of Marguerite (nee Elliot) and John M. Isom. Following high school graduation, Dr. Bob married the love of his life, Dorothy (Dottie) Janello, also of DuQuoin, IL. They began their life together with time spent in the US Navy during the Korean War, living in Bethesda Maryland. Dr. Bob, with Dotties support, graduated from Marquette University School of Medicine in 1961. They went on to raise four wonderful children.Following a general surgical residency, Dr. Bob joined the practice of Drs. Graber and Guenther MD, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Here, he pioneered many new procedures, and broadened his practice to include a vascular surgery specialty, where he remained active until retirement in 1994. Upon retirement, Dr. Bob and Dottie began to spend the majority of their time in Destin, Florida. Here, they made many lasting friendships and enjoyed an active life, volunteering their time, playing hours of tennis, fishing and combing the beautiful beaches. Until age 80, tennis was truly Dr. Bobs favorite past time, and any of his worthy opponents would testify to his competitive and yet fun-loving spirit both on and off the tennis court.

For many years before and after retirement, Dr. Bob volunteered in the on-site medical clinic where visitors from around the world benefited from his care.Dr. Bob was an exceptional husband, father, physician and friend.
