Bob passed away November 1, 2019 at the Selma Markowitz Care Center, operated by Hospice of Central Ohio. He was born December 17, 1953 in Willard, OH to the late Robert D. and Trinna L.

Following his military service Bob was a store manager for 37 years at Big Bear, followed by 8 years at Giant Eagle. He was a member of Jersey Baptist Church.

A devoted family man, Bob was a gentle giant. He was always kind and generous to others. He enjoyed fishing, spending time with family, especially his grandchildren, and the Ohio State Buckeye's.

He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Myra (Blessard) Vogel; daughters, Amanda (Justin) Snow and Ashlee Vogel, all of Newark; grandchildren, Bailey and Hunter Vogel and Grayson and Emersyn "Emme" Snow; brothers, Jim (Mary) Vogel, Ron (Beth) Vogel; sisters, Judy (Don) Chandler, JoAnn (Jerry) Wright; and a host of extended family and friends.

The Vogel family would like to extend their sincere gratitude for the care that Bob received at Licking Memorial Hospital. Thank you to the kind and compassionate ICU staff including Pastor Jeff Smith and his physician, Dr. Gabrielle Farkas.

Friends and family may call 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at the Vensil & Chute Funeral Home, 1850 W. Main Street, Newark and are encouraged to come donning their favorite Buckeye apparel.
