Robert “Bob” Williams

March 01, 1932 ‒ November 12, 2020

Mount Gilead, Ohio

Robert “Bob” Williams, age 88, of Mount Gilead, passed away peacefully on November 12, 2020, at his residence with his wife and daughters by his side.

He was born on March 1, 1932, in Mount Gilead, to the late Leo and Geneva (Edgell) Williams. Bob was the youngest of four children.

On February 16, 1952, Bob married his true love Betty Mulberg. Shortly after, he left to serve 2 years in the Army during the Korean War. After returning home, he and Betty were able to truly start their next 68 years of adventures together.

For 45 years, Bob worked for the HPM Corporation. He was proud to have only called off sick one day in all those years.  Even the day he called off sick, he started to feel better and returned to work.

A family man, Bob enjoyed taking the family every year to Myrtle Beach where he loved to relax in the sun and watch his girls play. After the girls were grown, he and Betty enjoyed traveling to Gatlinburg where they hiked the trails and were always amazed that at the end of every trail was a waterfall. Later in life, they would enjoy returning to Myrtle Beach with their children and grandchildren several times. Bob also enjoyed rooting on the Cleveland Browns and the Ohio State Buckeyes to victory.

He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Betty; daughters: Kim (Rosco) Kuenzer and Susan (Kenny Underwood) Garverick; grandchildren: Stephanie (John), Selina (Ronnie) and TJ (Mandi); and great grandchildren: Brayden, Brooklyn, Derek, Dylan, Ronni Mae, and Bailey.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents: Leo and Geneva; sister, Bertha Neff; and brothers: Kenny and Bub Williams.

His family would like to thank Dr. Jackson Liu and his wonderful staff at the Fresenius Dialysis Center for their excellent care of Bob over the last two years. Also a special thanks to the Marion Hospice Center, although only a short time, we appreciate the assistance during this difficult time.

A private family service will be held in his memory.

In Lieu of flowers, the family would ask memorial contributions in Bob’s name be made to the American Kidney Foundation.
