Robert “Bob” Boettcher, age 96, died peacefully June 30, 2020. He was born on Aug. 1, 1923, in Cleveland.
He was the beloved husband for 62 years of Edith Boettcher (nee Pierce, deceased). Loving father of Linda Ebersbacher (husband, Mark), Janine Stone (husband, Rob), Vicki Bradford (husband, David). Cherished grandfather of Hayley Iosue ( Ebersbacher, husband Vince Iosue), Sarah Bradford, Zachary Stone, Ryan Bradford, Noah Stone, Joshua Ebersbacher and Christopher Stone.
He was very proud to see all seven of his grandchildren graduate from college.
Bob lived in Chester Township since 2008, and prior to that Euclid.
He was a member of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio for over 65 years.
Bob loved to dance — or as we like to refer to it, “floated across the dance floor with our mom” — roller skate, bowl, garden, play cards, listen to books and big band music. He also was an avid fisherman.
He also loved dogs and had many grandpups he loved to hold.
He was a strong man, both physically and emotionally. He made many friends at the Chesterland Senior Center and always had a quick response/joke at the ready.
Bob had many amazing caregivers who helped take care of him as their own, allowing him to stay in his own home. To them, we are forever grateful.
A private celebration of our father’s life will be held at a later date.
