Obituary for Robert "Bob" Riner

Robert "Bob" Riner
Robert (Bob) James Riner, age 85, from Centerville, Ohio, died peacefully in his sleep on Friday, May 4, 2018. He was preceded in death by his parents Atella (Tusch) and William Riner, and his wife of twenty-two years, Frances (Busemeyer) Muldowney Riner. He is survived by his three children, Kathy (Jeff) Dunn, Leslie (Jerry) Sharkey, and John (Darcy) Riner and eight grandchildren: Rebekah (Chris) Cypert, Leah (Ty) Wolfe, Mark Dunn; Matthew Sharkey, Christina (Ben) Ellison, Anita (Mathew) Stasuk; and Alec and Joel Riner. He is also survived by six great-grandchildren: Lex, Satchel, Saylor, Jude, Amelie, and Lydia. Bob was affectionately known by the nickname “Rock” by many of his close friends.

After graduating from Fairmont High School in 1950, Bob attended the University of Cincinnati where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He was then a faithful worker at General Motors Delco Products in Kettering for thirty-five years before he retired as Executive Engineer to enjoy tennis, golf, travelling, and spending winters in the sunny states of Florida and California.

He was a supporter of many charitable and educational organizations including Cal State, UD Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Dayton History, Dayton Liederkranz-Turner, Fairmont Alumni, and the Castle in Centerville. He was also active in USGA’s Singles Assoc., attended the Centerville Police Academy, and was an enthusiastic season ticket holder of the Dayton Dragons and the Cincinnati Bengals.

He was most proud of his family and loved to interact with all of them through visits, long talks on the phone, sending articles, vacations, and the many other family events. Dad/Bob/Gpa will be missed greatly for his witty humor, his wise experience, his hugs, and all his love and care for everyone he met.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, at 1:00 pm at Springboro Baptist Church on 125 E. Mill St. in Springboro with time for visiting afterwards. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Friends of the Castle. Thanks to Schlientz-Moore Funeral Home for their assistance with arrangements.
