Resided in: Buffalo, North Dakota
It is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Robert Anthony Killoran, lovingly known as Bob, at the age of 64. Bob peacefully departed from this world on September 12, 2023, at his home in Buffalo, North Dakota.
Born on July 3, 1959, in Valley City, North Dakota to George and Theresa (Matt) Killoran. Bob spent his formative years in Buffalo, North Dakota and graduated from Maple Valley High School in 1978. After completing high school, he joined the family agriculture business, Killoran Partnership, where he worked alongside three generations of Killorans; including his father George, brother, Ron, and nephew, Justin.
Bob was an active member of St. Thomas Catholic Church, where his faith played an integral role in his life. He was actively involved in the Buffalo Wildlife Club and was a member of the Buffalo Volunteer Fire Department.
The simplest small town pleasures in life brought great joy to Bob. He always made time to enjoy supporting his beloved nieces and nephews at their various sporting events. He cheered proudly and will forever be fondly remembered by the referees. If Bob was not cheering on the Maple River Raiders, you could catch him watching his beloved, NDSU Bison football team. He was a big fan and could always be found among friends watching them at the Old 10 Saloon in Buffalo, ND.
His unconditional love extended to his great nieces and nephews, whom he cherished dearly. There was never a Christmas that passed when Uncle Bob didn’t have special gifts to deliver to all the children. Bob’s big heart touched the lives of his family, neighbors, and dear friends. He will never be forgotten and has left a holy beacon of light for all in the community.
Bob is survived by his loving sisters and brothers: Catherine (Wayne) Miller of Westhope, ND, Joseph (Lora) Killoran of Buffalo, ND, Dennis (Cristie) Killoran of Mesa, AZ, Mary (Brad) Kliniske of Buffalo, ND, Pat Killoran of Mesa, AZ, Ron Killoran of Gilbert, AZ, JoEllen Killoran of Buffalo, ND, and Patti Killoran of Detroit Lakes, MN. He also leaves behind 19 nieces and nephews, and 50 great nieces and nephews, all of whom were dear to his heart.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, George and Theresa, his brother Ray Killoran, and nephews Jason Miller and Jon Miller.
