Gluvna Shimo Hromada

Robert J. Newbert, 76, of Lorain, entered eternal life on Thursday February 6, 2020 while under the care of Mercy New Life Hospice at Kingston of Vermilion after an illness with cancer.

Robert was born April 12, 1943 in Lawrence, Massachusetts and moved to Lorain with his family in 1958. 

He graduated from Marion L. Steele High School in Amherst in 1961 and began a career at the Lorain Ford Assembly Plant as an inspector like his father before him.  He later entered the US Army where he spent much of his service in Korea with his job at Ford awaiting his return.

Bob was a caring man who lived life simply in Lorain.  He was a caregiver for his mother after his father passed away and always thought of others before himself.  His generosity was apparent to the community that knew him and his humble religious lifestyle was evident by his devotion to St Peter Parish in Lorain and the many Catholic missions he supported.  

Bob enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and studying their culture as witnessed by the many items left behind with authentic Hawaiian flavor.  

He was preceded in death by his father Peter V. Newbert in 1981, mother Sarah Newbert (née Conroy) in 2002 and brother Peter M. Newbert in 2017.  He is survived by his niece Jackie Newbert and nephew PJ Newbert.
