Robert L. Pleger, Ephrata, jack of all trades, worked at Keystone Woods, avid bowler

By on April 27, 2016

Robert L. Pleger “Bob-Bobby-Peepaw” was born July 28, 1938, to Samuel and Edna (Walton) Pleger. Bob went to his son on April 19, 2016, at Hospice and Community Care in Mount Joy.

Bob was very family oriented and his family meant more to him than anything. He leaves behind his wife of almost 53 years: Jean (Broich) Pleger; and his children: Susan J. Boyer, whom he resided with in Ephrata; Sandee J., companion of Troy Leid, of Ephrata; and Richard, fiancée of Kellie Bortz, of Lancaster. Brittany Pleger-Bell, a very special great-niece whom he raised, was the sparkle in his eyes; beloved son-in-law: James Frankhouser, of Lancaster; two brothers: David and Harold Pleger of Lancaster; and a sister: Mary of York County. Peepaw has six grandchildren: Monica, Amee, Josh, Tony, Matt, and Jonathan; and three great-grandchildren: Marlee, Breylon, and Keeran. He will be missed so very much but he left a lifetime of memories for his family.

He was preceded in death by his son: Robert L. “Robby” Pleger Jr.; his daughter-in-law: Patty (Kaiser) Pleger; and brothers: Carl, Samuel, and Larry; and a sister: Anna Mary.

Bob was of the Catholic faith and a jack of all trades doing many different jobs to support his family. His last two jobs were with Keystone Woods in Lancaster, as a sander; and at Dairy Queen in Ephrata as a clean-up man. Bob was a bowler for more than 50 years and enjoyed it. It was his favorite pastime and he loved bowling with his family. He was so proud of his son-in-law and grandsons for bowling 300 games.

There will be private services for the immediate family now, and a celebration of his life at a later date.

If you wish to remember Bob, please honor Hospice and Community Care, 685 Good Drive, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17602. Be a friend, lend a hand, give a smile.
