Robert C. "Bob" Mullendore Obituary
Robert C. "Bob" Mullendore, 87, of Boonsboro passed away peacefully, Sunday, July 27, 2014. Born April 17, 1927, in Gapland, he was the son of Wallace and Constance (Browne) Mullendore. He was a 1944 graduate of Boonsboro High School and 1950 graduate of Reppert School of Auctioneering. From 1947 to 1972, Bob called livestock auctions in Maryland (Four States and Westminster) and Pennsylvania (Greencastle and Carlisle). His fondness for livestock began at a young age as he traveled with his dad to area farms to buy and sell cattle. Bob would prop up stick horses on the family farm fence and pretend to auction off the make-believe animals. That love always meant a herd of beef cattle would graze his own farmland near Boonsboro. Belted Galloways were his breed of choice in recent years. In 1972 Bob built and established his auction complex on Lappans Road and was joined by his nephew, Douglas May, in the 1980's. For 64 years Bob was a respected auctioneer among his peers for his keen skill and sense of timing. Attending an auction wasn't always about the purchase, but the entertainment. He was an avid story and joke teller, often pausing long enough to engage the audience, then return to a quickened cadence for bidding. Coming from humble beginnings, Bob appreciated family and friends, often helping those less fortunate. He volunteered his time and talent for charitable auctions for many years. Bob was a Navy veteran, a member of Clopper-Michael Post 10, a former member of Williamsport Rotary, YMCA Century Club, and served on the Board of Directors for Boonsboro Bank and Hagerstown Trust (Fulton Bank). Bob is survived by his wife of 56 years, Charlotte (Cline) Mullendore, his daughter Ann, and husband Joe of Greensburg, PA, and his pride and beautiful joy, granddaughter, Hannah. The family would like to thank his personal physician, Dr. Zafar M. Malik. Also, the nursing and rehabilitation staff of Williamsport Retirement Village for their exemplary care of Bob in recent years. Abiding by his wishes, there will be no visitation. Burial will be private. To honor Bob's life you may choose to donate to a , or to your local library. Bob was an avid reader and drew inspiration from all he read, the local paper, Reader's Digest, or a new Nora Roberts novel. Perhaps the best tribute-attend an auction- bid high and bid often. All arrangements have been entrusted to the Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home, 1331 Eastern Blvd. North Hagerstown, MD.
