Robert "Bob" Edward Petz passed away peacefully from pneumonia, with his wife and family at his side, January 14, 2018, in Woodland Hills, California. He is survived by his wife, Marie Petz, four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Robert was born in Chicago, Illinois and lived in Highland Park, Illinois until the age of eight. He lost his father (Otto Petz) at the age of five, due to illness. He moved with his mother and step-father to Long Beach, California in 1936, where he spent his formative years. Robert served in the US Army during the Korean War. Upon discharge he went to Cosmetology School, where he met his future wife, Marie Wiles. After marrying, they moved to Chatsworth, California in 1964, where they raised their family. He worked as a cosmetologist, then as a regional manager for the "Magic Mirror" company. He was an original franchisee of the company and became a small business owner. Later in life, he worked in fleet sales at several car dealerships in the San Fernando Valley.

A Memorial Service and reception will take place Saturday, January 20, 2018, 1:00 p.m., at Reardon Simi Valley Funeral Home, 2636 Sycamore Dr., Simi Valley, California.
