Robert J. "Bob" Siebers, 70, of 601 Wexford Drive, Quincy, died at 11:33 a.m. Thursday (June 19, 2014) in Blessing Hospital. He was born on Sept. 27, 1943, in Quincy, a son of Lawrence J. "Larry" and Louise M. Belker Siebers. He married Charlotte D. Willer on July 11, 1964, in St. Francis Catholic Church. She survives. Bob attended St. Mary's Grade School and graduated from Christian Brothers High School as well as Quincy College, where he was a standout baseball player. He earned his master's degree at Northeast Missouri State University. Bob's career was spent in the Quincy Public School system. He held roles as a teacher, coach and guidance counselor. Later in his career, he was the director of guidance at Quincy Senior High School. He was a member of the Church of St. Peter. Prior to his illness, Bob had been active at church as a Eucharistic Minister. He helped count collections and participated for many years at the Adoration Chapel. Dedicated to his Catholic faith, Bob prayed regularly three times a day, with his prayer book and rosary always nearby. Spending time with family was most important to Bob. His family and his three grandchildren, who knew him as "Po Po," were his pride and joy. Another favorite pastime was cruising in his '56 Chevy while listening to old rock â€˜n' roll. Bob was truly a man of his word. If he said it, he meant it. He was loyal and greatly valued his lifelong friendships. He loved to send cards and thank you notes to support, congratulate and wish others well. He truly enjoyed visiting with his friends at local gyms, meeting for coffee or getting together at events he often helped organize.
