Robert H. Lindeman

January 1, 1933 ~ August 25, 2022 (age 89)


NORTON – Robert “Bob” Lindeman, age 89, passed away on August 25, 2022 surrounded by his loving family.

He was the first baby born in Wayne County, Ohio on January 1, 1933. Bob was born at the then family home to the late August and Oliva (Vetter) Lindeman. He grew up in Doylestown, graduating from Doylestown High School. He was a resident of Norton for many years, previously of Barberton. A veteran of the Korean War serving with the U.S. Navy, Robert retired as a truck driver for Teamsters Local #24 after 30 years of service. He attended St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church. Bob always placed his family first, showing his love by being supportive, generous, and caring; there to talk on the phone or help out in any way he could. A self-taught carpenter, Bob enjoyed renovating houses and built many decks for family members. He had a cabin on Leesville Lake where he enjoyed taking his family on pontoon boat rides. He loved “front porch sitting”, camping and traveling. Bob was very proud of the fact that he visited all 50 states, although he stated Ohio was his favorite.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Eleanor “Ellie”; sisters, Mary (Duane) Miller, Ruth (Jim) Stauffer; brother, Leo Lindeman; brother-in-law Harry Lepley; longtime friend and companion, Phyllis Fassnacht.  He leaves behind his daughters, Sherri (Joe) Kocsis of Marshallville, Vicki (Ben) Lafferre of Coventry Twp.; grandchildren, Melissa, Jason, Lindsay, and Kaitlyn Kocsis, Matt (Amy) Hutchison, Ethan Wichterman; sister, Joanne Lepley, and sister-in-law, Kay (Walter “Bud”) Villers all of Doylestown; nieces, nephews, other family and friends. And Fluffy!

A very heartfelt thank you to his neighbors, Joanne and Bob, who were his visiting angels. May God bless you both for always being there so many times when he was in need.
