Robert "Bob" Guy Wilson
Age 87, a lifelong resident of Tarentum, passed away on Friday, February 15, 2019 at Concordia Lutheran Ministries in Cabot where he was a resident the last year and a half. He was born on May 23, 1931 in Tarentum and was the son of the late Lloyd and Marie (Bowman) Wilson. He was married to his high school sweetheart, Marianne, for 66 years, until her death last January. Bob worked for the U.S. Postal Service until his retirement in 1986, beloved by those along his route in the “Campton” area of Natrona Heights. He was an avid sailor and particularly loved racing his well-tended Thistle sailboat named “Robin” with various family members as crew. He served as past commodore of the Lake Glendale Sailing Club and was a founder, along with Marianne, of the junior sailing program. As an integral member of the Lutheran Community in Pittsburgh, he served on the board of Concordia Lutheran Ministries for 6 years, sang with the Pittsburgh Lutheran Chorus for 46 years with his wife and was a past president of the organization, and was on the staff of Campraise, a Lutheran music camp, for many years. Bob was a professional tinkerer, a Mr. Fix-it for the family, and made beautiful furniture pieces that will be cherished for many years to come. He was a big sports fan, especially Duke basketball and the Steelers. Above all, Bob was devoted to his family and his memory will live on in all those he loved. He is survived by his daughters, Suzan (Edward) Lehosky of Allegheny Twp., and Sandy Demento of Natrona Heights; his Grandchildren, Scott (Stacy) Lehosky, Jeremy (Jessie) Lehosky, Louis (Kelly) Lehosky, Allison (Jeffrey) Klugh, Stacey (Joachim) Hero and eight great grandchildren. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by brothers Lloyd Wilson, Jr. and Roy Wilson.
