Robert H. Latham, Jr.

AGE: 74 • Wilmington

Robert H. Latham, Jr., 74, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, January 1, 2017.

Bob was a loving father, grandfather and husband, and an avid fisherman who enjoyed going after both freshwater and striped bass. He enjoyed country music, and his straight-shooting humor and soft heart made friends for life.

Bob retired from GM after working 30 years at the Boxwood Road plant. Until his recent illness, he continued working as nighttime security guard at the Granogue estate in Greenville, Delaware.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Kathryn Ann Latham; his daughters, Michelle Latham-Martin (Mike) and Melissa Latham; granddaughter, Brenna N. Armstrong, and her father Jason Armstrong; stepsons, Keith B. Holt and Kevin J. Holt; grandsons, Devin J. Holt, Zachary C. Holt and Maximus R. Holt, and their mother, Colleen M. McFarland; five brothers and sisters; and many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his mother, Bernice (Brunina) Binkley; stepfather, Elmer Binkley; and father, Robert H. Latham, Sr.

Family and friends are invited to visit from 1:00 - 3:00pm on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808. Interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, Bob's family requests donations to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, 912 Killian Hill Road S.W., Lilburn, GA 30047. (
