Charles Robert "Bob"
In loving memory of a gentleman who was loved by many and who will be sorely missed. He went to our loving God on October 29, 2012, succumbing to C.O.P.D. and acute renal failure after falling in his apartment and found five days later. He was born on June 23, 1927 and entered the Navy October 19, 1945. Four years later, he transferred to the Air Force. He served many years abroad during the Korean War. He was honorably discharged in September 1965, officially retired in January 1966. He then completed Navigation school in 1969. He obtained his certified Pilots license in 1976. Since he joined the Navy before completing high school, he got his High School Equivalence certificate in 1978. He went on to get his Practical Nurses License in May 1980. He worked at St Vincent Hospital for many years. He then went on to provide private Hospice care.
He loved classic literature from philosophy to Dickens, and his art collection. For hobbies he liked photography, target shooting, flying planes, skydiving, motorcycles, and his much-loved cars. He traveled around the world and made many lifelong friends. Some of his favorite counties were Australia, New Zealand and Britain. His favorite charities were ones that supported the Native American children's outreach.
He resided at the Tameron Towers in Toledo, Ohio for 20 plus years. He was loved by many neighbors and friends there. He is survived by his son, Charles Robert Annereau Leidner (Bob); grandchildren, Elly Leidner, 16, and Connor Leidner, 12; his sister Mary Louise Annereau Stender of Vermont; his niece, Sharon Ann Stender Muth of Vermont; his nephew, Eric John Charles Stender of Toledo. He very much loved his grandnieces and nephew, Brian Thomas Muth, Renée Louise Muth Cota and Chantae Carolyn Muth. He also adored his great-grandniece and nephews, Joshua Charles Jacob Muth Cota, 21, in the Air Force following in his great-granduncle's footsteps, Samuel Thomas William Cota, 16, and Kate Annalese Elizabeth Cota, 13. All of the above are of Vermont. Bob loved to come to Vermont twice a year to visit the east and to see those he loved and who loved him beyond measure. Till we meet again, my dear uncle.
