Robert “Bob” Sheldon Hamrah, was born on August 19, 1944 in Brooklyn, NY. He previously lived in Spotswood, NJ. He died on Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Toano, Virginia.

Bob began his career as a landscaper before settling in and delivering oil for Baerenklau (now Petro) until his retirement.

Bob enjoyed watching boxing, golf, and tennis. He loved to garden, work around his home, and helping his children with handiwork. In addition, some of the activities he loved doing included playing paddleball, chess and cards, collecting coins, playing the lotto, and playing the scratch offs. The thing he loved the most was spending time with his beloved family.

Bob was a very loving man that loved all creatures big and small; including his neighbors dog, that he cared for like his own, his cat Tabitha, and the wild birds he loved to feed.

    May our friend, "Mr. Bob", rest in the peace in the Lord. We introduced our grandson to Bob as Mr. Bob, and we have called him Mr. Bob ever since. He was a good friend. We enjoyed our visits with Bob and Vinnie, May the peace of Jesus Christ surround Vinnie and her family during this time.
