Robert E. “Bob” Moreland, age 81, of Centerburg passed away on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus with his loving family at his side.
He was born on December 27, 1938 in Centerburg to the late Basil and Edna (Hall) Moreland. Bob was a truck driver and was employed at American Freight from which he retired. He was a member of the Grace Lutheran Church, the Colonial City Moose Lodge #2555 and was a veteran serving in the United States Army from 1959-1964. Bob enjoyed the times with friends and family at his family’s property on the Muskingum River. He also took great joy in woodworking and traveling with his wife and family. But most of all, Bob was a “family man” and he loved the time he spent with them.
