War Stories: The Life and Legacy of Bob Shotwell


When we launched our War Stories series more than two years ago, longtime La Pine resident Bob Shotwell was the first Central Oregon veteran that we profiled. 

Shotwell passed away last week at the age of 94, so for this week’s War Stories, we look back at the life and legacy of World War II veteran and longtime journalist, Bob Shotwell.

Thanks to Bob’s son, Michael, for sharing his father’s story. Central Oregon Daily gives our condolences to the Shotwell family and the community of La Pine.

A special thanks to Gary Gruner Chevrolet Buick GMC for sponsoring War Stories and giving us the time and resources to tell the stories of Central Oregon’s war veterans every Monday night and Tuesday afternoon on Central Oregon Daily.
