Robert “Bob” A. Woller, 89, of Wausau, passed away on April 30, 2021, at Wisconsin Veterans Home at King.
Bob was born at home on February 29, 1932, to the late Sigmund and Adela (Kasten) Woller. He grew up on the family farm in the Town of Maine. Bob met Gloria Storm on December 26, 1954, on a blind date arranged by friends. They were married on May 26, 1956, at Grace Methodist Church in Merrill.
Bob was drafted into the US Army during the Korean War and served his country honorably as an MP (military police). After leaving the service, Bob worked at Marathon Electric for 38 years, retiring in 1994.
Bowling, fishing and traveling were some of the things that Bob enjoyed. He traveled to many states, including Hawaii and Alaska, and went on five cruises. He also enjoyed going up north to the cottage for 44 years. Bob was an excellent card player and really excelled at playing cribbage, sheepshead, and pinochle. Bob’s presence will be missed, but his family finds solace in knowing he is at peace with his Lord and Savior.
Bob is survived by his wife of nearly 65 years, Gloria; children, Beth (Clay) Lindgren of Reno, NV and Amy (Matt) Gewiss of Weston; grandchildren, Steven Witter, Susan (Jonathan) Blumreich; Sarah (Nick Waskow) Witter, Adam (Katelyn) Gewiss, and Rachel (Jerry) Rodgers; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Cali, and Aiden Blumreich, Layla Witter, and Titus Gewiss; siblings; Adeline Fandrey, Clifford (Delores) Woller, and Eunice Berndt; godsons, Daniel Woller, John Woller, and Russell Barttelt; and his sisters-in-law, Dorothea Woller and Donna Woller.
In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his daughter Gail Beth; as well as his siblings, Elsie Jaeger, Raymond, Reuben, Elmer, Lorna Barttelt, Harvey, Loyd, Amos, and David.
