Robert John Reeb, 46, of Monongahela, “stood in the door” and made his final jump on January 2, 2020. Born June 26, 1973 in Abington, PA, he was the son of Sandra (Cassel) Roberts of Warminster, PA and Frederick C. Reeb of West Newton, PA.
Robert was a disabled veteran of the United States Army with service in North Carolina, Italy, combat tours in Bosnia, Sierra Leon, Rwanda and two combat tours in Iraq. He was an Airborne Infantryman and later a Human Resources Specialist, caring for and looking after the interests of his fellow soldiers.
