About Mr. Bob Kildee:
Bob Kildee was a Michigan native and father of five was best known for his clothing store, Bob Kildee Clothing, a Camarillo mainstay that first opened in Old Town in 1954. Kildee’s store, first called Bob Kildee Shop for Men, opened on Glenn Drive in Old Town nearly a decade before Camarillo officially became a city. It was a gamble for small business man but one that paid off.
Kildee’s involvement in the community included numerous service and business organizations. In the 1960s, Kildee headed a committee to bring parks to Camarillo that would eventually become the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District. He served on the park district’s board of directors for eight years— seven of which were spent as its chair.
Kildee also took part in the committee that helped develop the Camarillo master plan and its official incorporation as a city in 1964.
Kildee was the president of both the Pleasant Valley and Camarillo Lions clubs, as well as a member of the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors and a member of the Patients’ Benefit Board for Camarillo State Hospital.
In 1989, Kildee was named an honorary Don of the city by the Pleasant Valley Historical Society.
Always a proponent of the city’s local businesses, he was recognized as Camarillo Man of the Year by the Chamber in 1975 and was named a Pillar of the Community in 2007.
Born in northern Michigan, Kildee came to Ventura County in 1948 to work at the Naval Air Missile Test Center at Point Mugu for Globe Aircraft. He would soon meet a young Somis woman named Barbara Culbert, and the two married in 1951. A mother of five, Barbara Kildee died in 1988 after 37 years of marriage.
Kildee then married Maggie Heacock Erickson, a former Ventura County supervisor, in 1991. Bob and Maggie Kildee, who share seven children and nine grandchildren, had been married for 19 years when he passed away in 2010, at the age of 90.
