Smith, Robert - Delta  
SMITH Dr. Robert Francis Dr. Robert Francis Smith, 87, of Toledo, passed away peacefully at St. Luke's Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. He was born February 28, 1927, in San Francisco, CA, to Harold and Esther Smith. Bob's family later moved to Detroit, MI, where he attended Visitation School and graduated from St. Theresa High School, in 1945. In the middle of his senior year in high school, Bob enlisted in the United States Coast Guard, during WWII, serving in the Pacific area for 2 years. Upon returning from the service, he attended the University of Detroit, where he was a member of the Delta Sigma Pi Fraternity and graduated in February, 1951, with a B.S. degree in Business Administration. Bob was employed at Libbey-Owens Ford Glass Company in Rossford for 2 years, where he became an assistant office manager at their largest plant. That is where he realized what he wanted as his life's work and that he didn't want a business life at a large corporation, but rather be a real help to people in a professional capacity. He returned to school at Ohio State University where he graduated from the College of Dentistry in June, 1960 and was a member of the Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity. Bob began his general dentistry practice with Dr. Leo Cunningham at Reynolds Corners. In 1963, he opened his own private practice in the Forum Professional Building (Sylvania and Talmadge) until he retired in 2006, after 46 years. He was a perfectionist and treated his patients as he would have wanted to be treated. Many of his early patients and their families were still patients when he retired. Bob was a member of the Toledo Dental Society, the Ohio Dental Association, the American Dental Association, Maumee Valley Toastmasters International and the United States Power Squadron. He was also a member of Christ the King Catholic Church for almost 50 years, where he was as a lecturer, communion distributor, usher and served on the Liturgy Committee. Bob married Mary Margaret Thebes on June 23, 1956, and they celebrated 58 years of marriage last June. Together, they looked forward to going to St. Petersburg, FL and fishing on Tampa Bay with brother-in-law, John Cannon and nephews, John Paul and Rob. Boy Scouting was a big part of Bob's pre-high school life and he later became a Boy Scout Leader. He enjoyed the outdoor life with camping, swimming and boating. He loved to sail on his boat, "Moonglow." Bob would sail on Lake Erie, to Put-in-Bay, Canada and Toledo Harbor Light. Bob loved to spend time with his grandchildren and attending their soccer, volleyball, basketball and football games, school plays, musicals and piano recitals. He was a marvelous story teller and entertainer. Bob was a strong, but kind and gentle man. Bob is survived by his loving wife, Mary Smith; daughter, Dr. Carolyn (Dr. Charles) Gbur; grandchildren, Alexandria Gbur, Charles Gbur III, Gina Gbur and Delaney Gbur; sister, Florence (Jim) Dunn; sister and brother-in-law, Jane and John Cannon and nephews, John Paul and Rob Cannon. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Martin, Lawrence, Donald and Kenneth and grandson, Mikey Gbur. Bob will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Friends are invited to visit from 2:00-8:00 p.m., Thursday, in the Ansberg-West Funeral Home, 3000 Sylvania (between Secor and Douglas Roads), where a prayer service will be held at 7:00 p.m. Prayers will begin at 10:30 a.m. Friday from the funeral home followed by the funeral Mass at 11:00 a.m., at Christ the King Catholic Church. Entombment will follow at Resurrection Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Michael Anthony Gbur Scholarship Fund or the American Heart Association. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at St. Luke's Hospital for the wonderful care given to Bob. Online condolences may be sent to the family at: www.ansberg-west.com

Welles, David - Perrysburg  
WELLES David Edwin "Ted" David Edwin "Ted" Welles of Boulder, Colorado and formerly of Perrysburg, Ohio died on Saturday, October 25, 2014. He was born on November 5, 1979, to Hope (Jones) and David K. Welles Jr. Ted attended Maumee Valley Country Day School from the age of four through graduation in 1998. He attended the University of Oregon and moved to Vail, Colorado in 2003, where he was the head of guest services at the Christiania Hotel. Ted subsequently moved to Boulder, Colorado to pursue his lifelong passion for music. Ted developed a love of music at a very young age and played in his first band at the age of 13. He played many instruments and sang vocals but his true passion was percussion. He played drummer for many bands in high school and college. His move to Boulder allowed him to pursue this passion more fully and he found his calling as the drummer for The Drunken Hearts, a Boulder based bluegrass group. Ted was not only passionate about music, but about life in general. His kindness and generosity were known and felt by all who knew him. For ten years, he dedicated much of his free time to volunteering for BeadForLife, a nonprofit organization which combats extreme poverty in communities in Uganda by providing entrepreneurial training and fair trade wages for women who create hand-crafted beaded jewelry. Ted was one of the longest serving volunteers for BeadForLife and one of their all time largest marketers. Ted also volunteered with an organization for young people called Culture Jam in western Oregon. Culture Jam is a program for youth, ages 14-18, where participants discover their purpose and potential through arts-centered activities. He spent three summers with the program and was well loved by all the participants. Ted was known by everyone as a funny, thoughtful and deeply compassionate individual. He embraced the world and spread his love by his words, actions and care for all. Ted made friends wherever he went and was truly inspiring to those around him. To acknowledge the way he led his life and in his memory, his family and friends created the "Ted Pledge" so that he would live in our hearts forever and his light in this world would never fade: Be generous with everything Give thanks for something every day Give everyone the benefit of the doubt Take care of ourselves and each other Do random acts of kindness Look everyone in their eyes Be careful with our grammar Be proud of our bodily functions Offer a smile to friends and strangers Give two-armed hugs with every hello and goodbye Strive to be the nicest person in the room Ted is survived by his mother and father; fiancée, Samantha Lipman; sisters, Hope W. Jernagan (Luke) of St. Louis, MO, and Berkley W. Wellstein (Bob) of Chicago, IL; nieces, Hope Jernagan, Maude Jernagan; nephew, William Wellstein; paternal grandmother, Georgia Welles and many aunts, uncles and cousins. The family suggests memorial contributions to BeadforLife or a charity of the donor's choice.
