Obituary of Robert Norris Deweese
Robert Norris Deweese was born in Newark, Ohio March 29th, 1947, and died on February 15th, 2023 in Melbourne, Florida. Son of Wayne and Dortha Deweese, he was the middle of three boys, the eldest, Gary, and the youngest, Glenn. He began work at an early age in the family grocery store, where he developed his lifelong passion and career for the grocery business. As Bob always said, “everyone’s gotta eat.” Groceries brought him far more than a career, as it was in that family store where Bob met Wilma, the love of his life. Bob and Wilma married on October 1st, 1967, after which he embarked on his two-year tour of the U.S.S. America in the United States Navy. Once he returned from his dutiful service in the Vietnam war, Bob and Wilma had three sons: Scott, Jason, and Matthew Deweese. He was fortunate enough to not only be a grandfather but a great-grandfather as well. Bob now joins his beloved wife, Wilma, son, Matthew, brother, Gary, mother, Dortha, father, Wayne, and many other loved ones in the arms of God. He is survived by his sons, Scott and Jason, his brother, Glenn, grandchildren, Zachary, Madilyn, and Abigail, and his great-grandchildren, Heather and Elliot.
