Robert G. Eckels, 92, of Rostraver Township, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, July 7, 2022 with his family by his side. Born in Monongahela on December 2, 1929, he was the son of the late Frank and Myrtle Eckels.

 

Bob was retired from Liggett Spring and Axle in Monongahela and attended the First Christian Church in Monongahela. He was an active member of the Rostraver Lions Club since the late 1980's and was an avid fan of all sports, especially his "Bucco's", and he was always the #1 fan with his sons’ and granddaughters’ sports activities. Bob was a kind, caring and gentle man and always had a smile on his face; anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him can verify this!  Bob honorably served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

 

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Janet R. (Laughland) Eckels; sons, Chris D. Eckels of Rostraver and Brian C. Eckels of Rostraver; granddaughters, Caitlin Loughner of VA, Taylor (Josh) Golack of West Newton and Summer (Tyler) Wright of Rostraver; great-grandchildren, Quinn and Hayes Wright; and sister, Shirley Eckels of Lexington KY.

 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by 2 infant children, Christy and Joseph; and brother, William Eckels.
