Robert DeVany Obituary

Robert (Bob or Bobby D) DeVany passed away peacefully in his home on November 18, 2023 in Napa, CA
at the age of 81.
Bob was born on April 14, 1942 in Davenport, IA to Mary DeVany (Zissis) and George DeVany. After
being raised in Norfolk, VA, he graduated from Richmond High School (Richmond, CA) in 1960 and
completed an Associate’s Degree in Business/English at Contra Costa College (san Pablo, CA).
Bob married the love of his life, Sherry Fulton in 1965 and over the next 8 years, the couple welcomed 2
children into their home. Bob gushed about being a father and the opportunity to watch these little
people grow up in front of his eyes. He loved his family most of all and he expressed that love up until
the end. He was always thinking about his loved ones and provided whatever was needed to them
(encouragement, levity, comfort).
Bob and Sherry moved to Napa, CA in 1974 where they have remained for 49 years. He was a banker for
most of his professional career and loved the game of golf, leading to him working as a starter with the
Silverado Country Club for 17 years. Bob and his wife were a team couple with the Napa community
Marriage Encounter organization for many years and his deep faith in his lord and savior, Jesus Christ,
guided him through all his life.
Bob is survived by his wife, Sherry; children, Michele and Mark; siblings, Richard DeVany (Bob’s identical
twin), Jim Coughlin and Charlotte Klebe; grandchildren, Owen, Sam, Grace and Dillon. He is preceded in
death by his mother, Mary Zissis; his father George DeVany; and sibling, Ray Coughlin.
The family would like to thank hospice angels Angela, Preet and Annaliza as well as homecare angels
Milagros, Cora, and Marissa for their care and dedication.
