Robert E. Slocum Jr., 61, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, at Ocean Medical Center, Brick. Born in Long Branch, he lived most of his life in Wall Township. A 1969 graduate of Wall High School, Robert was very involved in sports, playing baseball and soccer, and he was a member of the gymnastics team. He then went on to serve his country for 6 years in the National Guard. Robert was a truly dedicated employee of Pepsico of Ocean Township (Asbury Park) for over 40 years. Most known as "Bobby", he spent his career as a Salesman/Bulk Driver, was a member of Teamsters Local No. 125 and the Action Planning and Safety Committee of Pepsico, Asbury Park. A lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore, Bob liked to surf, spend time at the beach, and travel. He was a dog lover (especially beagles), a bird-watcher, an admirer of woodworking and an avid New York Yankee fan. Bob had the utmost respect for veterans and firemen.

Surviving are his dear parents, Robert E. Sr. and Joan Bateman Slocum; his beloved wife of 37 years, Mary Ellen Zigo Slocum; his cherished daughter, Beth Ann Slocum; his brother, Richard Alan Slocum and wife Rosemary of Ashton, MD; his loving mother-in-law, Ann F.
