Robert Karnos

June 18, 1964 – Sept. 1, 2019

Robert Karnos died on Sept. 1, 2019.

Born in Anchorage, Rob was a lifelong fourth-generation Alaska resident.

Attending Rogers Park Elementary School, Wendler Middle School and East Anchorage High School, Rob maintained enduring friendships with everyone he encountered due to his unique style and sympathetic ear.

After moving to Homer in the ‘80s, Rob worked the family hotel business then became Homer’s favorite cabbie. He especially enjoyed spending time with family and looking after Grandma.

Rob’s ability to identify with everyone without judgement, his generous, empathetic, and caring demeanor, and his laughter and sharp wit were a treasure and will be missed by all.

Rob leaves behind members of the Karnos, Hubbard and McHone clans, as well as friends far and wide.

Memorials are planned for Anchorage and Homer.
