Robert Bob R. Wellman Obituary

Robert "Bob" R. Wellman, age 69, loving father and grandfather, died February 13, 2014 with family at his side at the Erie VA Medical Center following a courageous two year battle with cancer. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 2, 1944 and was the son of the late Raymond and Jean (Brassell) Wellman.

Robert was a veteran of the United States Army having served during the Vietnam War. He also attended Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Bob loved cooking, music, spending time with friends and family, going for walks, and being by the water. He worked at American Meter and Uniflow in Erie, then moved to Cleveland, Ohio and built greenhouses for many years before moving back to Erie to retire.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Nancy Davis.

Bob is survived by his children, Jason Wellman of Erie and Susanne (Martin) Wolper of Erie; and two grandchildren, Liam Dougherty and Annie Wolper. He is the brother of Sandy (Robert) Oster of Cleveland, Ohio.

Special thanks to the VA hospice team and special friend, Jeff O'Hara.
