Robert A. Dell Jr.

April 29, 1960 ‒ November 08, 2010

Galena, Ohio

Robert Alan Dell, Jr., 50, November 8, 2010, after a brief illness, comforted and cared for by the extraordinary doctors and staff of the ICU at St. Ann’s/Westerville.

Rob was a proud connoisseur of the hottest of peppers, a talented musician and artist, carpenter and builder, avid gardener and Buckeye fanatic. Shortly after admission, one of Rob’s concerns was that the OSU/Purdue game be recorded for him. He had a quick wit and a wicked sense of humor, and a huge soft spot in his heart for pups and kittens.

Preceded in death by his brother, James Christopher Dell, he is survived by his father, Robert Alan (Bertie) Dell, Sr.; mother, Betty Lou Deeds; sisters, Kirsten Lisë (Rusty Bell) Dell and Carolyn Emily Boothe, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and a nephew.

Friends and family (Buckeye attire is encouraged) may call from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Saturday, November 13, at DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, 637 State Route 61, Sunbury, Ohio, with a memorial service to follow at 12:00 p.m.

For Rob’s fellow football fans OSU kick-off is at 3:30.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Guardian Angels Program of the Mount Carmel (St. Ann’s) Foundation, 6150 East Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio, 43213-9924.(
