Robert Eugene Doublestein Jr., age 74, of Dorr MI, passed away under the tender care of Faith Hospice on Saturday May 8, 2021. He was born in Grand Rapids MI, on March 16, 1947 to the late Robert E. Sr. and Marguerite Doublestein. He is survived by his son, Micah Doublestein. He was preceded in death by his wife, Charlene Doublestein; and parents.

Robert and Charlene married in the year 1972, a few years after, they had Micah, their only child together. They were married for 47 years before Charlene passed away in 2019.

Robert was the kind of person everyone loved, but he was loved by his son the most. He will be remembered as a loving, selfless, humorous father and husband. He displayed each of these traits all through his life; he was a great father and spouse. Robert always did what he could for others no matter if he was injured or sick himself. Micah remembers when his father nurtured him, his mother and grandmother back to health when they each needed it most. In a heart-beat, Robert was willing to give up his comfort if that meant his family was taken care of. Robert would often give the best advice and say “Sometimes when you have to, you just do it”.

In the last years of Robert’s life, he and Micah spent a lot of time together. Micah took on the caretaker role of his father, and cherished every moment they spent together before he passed.

The family would like to specially thank Faith Hospice for taking great care of Robert.

Per Robert’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Faith Hospice or the American Lung Association.
