March 13, 1929 ~ March 28, 2013
Greece: Thursday, March 28, 2013, Bob joined his devoted wife, Marion, by whom he was predeceased. He was a news professional in Rochester radio for decades, lending his voice to such stations as WBBF, WHAM and WVOR. He served as president of the Rochester chapter of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) union in the late 1960's. Bob also served in the United States Army during the Korean War. Despite his quiet personal nature, when he did speak, it was to share something inevitably interesting, funny or both. He was a wealth of knowledge on a seemingly endless variety of topics and subjects. Bob is predeceased by his parents, Ethel and Julius Bohrer; his son James, sister Ethel (David) Brazil and brothers William, Edwin and Richard. He is survived by his loving children, Katherine (Les) Hanrahan-Drews, Robert, Jr. and Caroline; brother Eugene (Cora), sisters-in-law Betty Bohrer, Geraldine Allen and Norma Sarvey; grandchildren, Jesica, Megan, Robert, Lauren, Katherine, Robert, Corey and Maura and great-grandchildren, Kaylan, Dilan, Orion, Drew, Shaye, Casey and Evelyn as well as several nieces and nephews. A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held at Garland Cemetery at the convenience of the family.
