Robert Lee Jester Obituary
Robert Lee Jester

AGE: 63 • Newark

Robert Lee Jester peacefully concluded his long battle with lung cancer on January 7th 2016. Robert's final days were spent surrounded by loving family and the many friends that Robert had touched in some small way throughout his incredible life. Throughout his life, he never lost his sense of wonder or imagination. No matter the obstacle, he kept moving forward. Bob, as he was known to those closest to him, was a talented chef and tenacious entrepreneur. But unknown to many, he was also an unshakeable optimist. No matter the situation, Bob saw opportunities to learn and grow everywhere he looked. He was a devoted husband, a dedicated father, loving brother and a compassionate friend who never let people give up and never hesitated to offer a hand to a friend in need. He worked hard his entire life and encouraged his children to never stop learning.

Robert is survived by his loving wife, Crystal; sons, Richard, his wife Katherine (Katie), and Robbie, sister, JoAnn & husband David Foraker Sr.; sisters-in-law, Kay Hill, Kim & Tina Rhodes, & Hillary Alexander, and many nieces & nephews. The family invites you to join them to celebrate this incredible life on Tuesday, January 12th at the Strano & Feeley Family Funeral Home on Churchman's Road in Newark. Visitation will start at 1:30 PM, followed by a Memorial Service promptly at 2 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family would encourage friends and family to make donations to Toys for Tots or Delaware Hospice. For directions or to send an online condolence, visit
