Robert “Bob” Singer, 79 years old, of St. Leon, IN passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family on Thursday, November 11, 2021 after a long battle with lung cancer. A tall and simple man, he was a hard worker his entire life. Bob loved his Farmall tractors, working on his farm, baling hay, and raising dairy and beef cattle. Bob’s nephews, Scott & Rick, credit Bob for everything they know on the farm as they spent many days working together. In addition to farming, Bob was considered a jack of all trades. He was an electrician, a mechanic, and a plumber just to name a few of his talents. Later in life, Bob took on the role of custodian at Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools. He loved his hound dogs, especially Peanut, who enjoyed following Bob around the farm. And, when he finally sat down to relax, Bob enjoyed his favorite foods such as apple pie, Swiss steak, German potato salad, and sweets of any kind.
Bob will be dearly missed by his siblings Carole Ritzi of St. Leon, IN; Richard (Colleen) Singer of Columbia City, IN; Kathy (Doug) Goldkamp of W. Harrison, IN; Donna Baas of St. Leon, IN; and Sharon (Phil) Neumeier of Napoleon, IN; nieces and nephews Debbie Ritzi, Deanna Lohrum, Rick Singer, Nicole Singer, Brian Cox, Jeremy Baas, Scott Baas, Jordan Brown, and Jason Brown; 7 great nieces & nephews; and 7 great-great nieces & nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents John & Florence Singer and brothers-in-law Maurice Ritzi and Darrel Baas.
