He was particularly passionate about protecting children and people with special needs, spending 31 years in Keyser, West Virginia as the Director of Special Education for Mineral County schools which included being the Principal of the Clary Street Developmental Center & Workshop.

He enjoyed gardening, listening to music, grilling, playing tennis, spending time at the beach, and annual canoe trips on the South Branch of the Potomac River.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers-in-law, Jack Jones and Bert Jennings. He is survived by his wife; sons, Matt (Tammy) and Eric (Jamie); granddaughters, Lindsay and Laina; sisters, Claire Jennings and Joan Aldridge (Jim); sister-in-law, Jann Dehus (Mike); and numerous nieces and nephews and their families.

A Memorial Service will be held at First Methodist Church, Vero Beach, FL on Saturday, February 24 at 10:00 a.m. followed by a Celebration of Life at Spanish Lakes Country Club Village clubhouse at 12:00 noon.

Bob was the best brother I ever could have hoped for. He supported me with love, advice and fun. And just the right amount of competition! He thought of others first and lived his faith and family beliefs completely. He will be sorely missed! Love you forever Bobby.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
