Robert W. (Bob) Zerfas passed away Monday, July 15, 2019. He leaves behind his loving wife Patricia (Essig) of 58 years, five children Kelline (Michael) Holt, John, Norman (Kristin), Jeffrey (Monica), and Benjamin (Deb), 11 grandchildren, a sister Evelyn Lynch, a brother Donald Zerfas and honorary son, Jorge Gaytan.
Bob loved to fly. He spent 5 years in the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command as an Officer and Navigator on a B-52 Stratofortress bomber. This was the highlight of his professional life. His fondness of the B-52 and commitment to the US military was the topic of many conversations. Bob left the military for the only thing he loved more, his family. For the next 15 years, he ran Three Rivers Block & Builders Supply. Later he became a realtor until he retired. His Catholic Faith was very important to him. He was an active member of the church and a member of the Knights of Columbus and the VFW. Although he was very active in his community, his most important roles were husband, father and grandfather.
In lieu of flowers, donations to The Gary Sinise Foundation, Fisher House Foundation, American Heart Association, and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital would be appreciated. Envelopes are available at Hohner Funeral Home.
