Bob Kellogg Sr., a long-time resident of Federal Way, passed away on Tuesday, September 26.

To honor the legacy of Bob, the City of Federal Way lowered the flag on South 320th Street to half-mast on Wednesday, September 27, at the direction of Mayor Jim Ferrell.

"There would be no flag on 320th if it had not been for Bob's vision and advocacy for the flag," said Mayor Ferrell. "The official downtown flag-raising ceremony along 320th on November 11, 2014, at 11 a.m. to honor veterans in our community was Bog Kellogg’s idea. During the early 1990s, Bob served as a board member for the Brooklake Community Center property and worked hard to ensure the preservation of the building." 

Bob was known for his numerous contributions to the community, including his service as a Federal Way Parks Commissioner, the Mayor’s Veterans Committee, a Kiwanis Club of Federal Way member, and various other committees.

"Bob Kellogg’s significant impact on the community and those he served will be long remembered," said Mayor Ferrell. "Our condolences go out to his family during this difficult time. He was a friend of mine and a friend of Federal Way’s. We will miss him."
