Robert "Bob" E. Hallcroft, Sr.

January 1, 1941 — August 8, 2023

Robert Earl Hallcroft Sr (Bob) of Evansville, WY was welcomed into Heaven's gates August 8, 2023, at the age of 82 after a hard-fought battle following a brief illness.

Bob was born January 1,1941 to Wayne and Pauline Hallcroft in Basin, WY, the 4th of 6 children. In 1959 he graduated from Basin High School and married Sharon Lowe. Bob worked in a number of trades throughout his life. He worked as a carpenter, a railroad machinist, a lineman for Tri County Telephone Company and was an engineer for the Burlington Northern Railroad. After a back injury ended his job with the railroad, Bob pursued his true passion when he was instrumental in organizing the Greybull Recreation District. Even before starting the rec department, as a volunteer in his free time, he brought many state softball and little league tournaments to the Greybull and Basin area. He also coached multiple softball and baseball teams. He especially enjoyed coaching his 3 children, his oldest grandson and four granddaughters. One of the highlights of his life was coaching the Jade-ettes softball team who reined as WY state Champs from 1967 to 1971. Another highlight was coaching the BatBenders girls fast pitch team to 1998 and 1999 state championships. Bob became a member of the WY Softball Hall of fame as a coach in 2004. To add to this, the Jade-ettes were the first softball team to receive the honor in 2021.

Bob is survived by his children; Ronda (Rod) Howe of Shepherd, MT, Robert (Bobby) Hallcroft Jr (Kristina), Kari (Bart) Olson both of Casper, WY, siblings; Mary (Jim) Raffl, John Hallcroft both of Basin, WY. He is also survived by 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Preceding him in death are his wife of 46 years, Sharon, 2nd wife Norma Deason, whom he was married to for 12 years, parents; Wayne and Pauline (Spargur) Hallcroft; siblings; Albert Hallcroft, Betty (Hallcroft) Winterholler and William (Bill) Hallcroft.

Most recently, Bob spent his time attending sporting activities of his youngest 2 grandchildren in Casper. Using his newly aquired technology skills, he was able to follow his great­ grandchildren's sporting events on NFHS or GameChanger. He also enjoyed watching his beloved Dodgers on tv. Heaven has gained not only an angel, but a great coach!
