Bob was a 1957 alumnus of Hickory High School, Hermitage and has since been a lifelong Sharpsville resident.  Bob was a member of the U.S. Air Force, for four years, where he was stationed in Delaware and the Philippine’s.

Bob was a machinist at the former General America. He also drove bus for more than 30 years for the former Bortner Tours, South Pymatuning Township, which later became Travelways. He spent many years farming and maintaining properties with Scott Lewis, and was a member of the Sharpsville Area School Board.  

A loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Robert was an avid sports fan and he enjoyed nothing more than attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. He also enjoyed playing his daily lottery numbers and scratch offs.

A side from his parents, he was preceded in death by his former wife, Mary Vodenichar; three brothers, Carl, Joseph, and Freddie Vodenichar; a Sister Helene Vodenichar, and a nephew David Vodenichar.

The family would like to thank Breakfast at Tiffany’s and all their employees for being so kind to our father for so many years, as he was a daily patron.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Bob's family. I would like to a share my memories of Bob when we were in elementary school. Both Bob and I lived 'up on the hill'. (And, as you know, it was very steep.) We had to walk to and from school everyday and the days my asthma was bad, Bob would actually carry me home on his back. In all these years I have never forgotten his very special kindness to me. He was truly an amazing person even in his youth. I am sure he will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
