Obituary

Robert F. Rothrock, 79, of Reading, passed away on July 26th in his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was the widower of Gertrude (Latshaw) Rothrock, who died on September 12, 2005, with whom he shared 39 years of marriage.

Born in Reading, PA on August 27, 1940 he was the son of the late Clarence M. and Esther B. (Stock) Rothrock.

After graduating from Exeter High School Robert enlisted in the United States Air Force and served from 1959 through 1964. He was employed as a HVAC technician for several years with the Reading Merchants Oil Company and last worked for Jones Lang LaSalle as a Chief Building Engineer retiring in 2006.

He was very mechanically skilled and could fix just about anything. He enjoyed fishing, painting and drawing, the Silver Sneakers program at Body Zone, social gatherings sponsored by the Vision Resource Center of Berks County and was an avid Phillies fan. Spending time with his grandkids and being their Pop-Pop was what provided the most enjoyment for him.

He is survived by three children, Mark R., husband of Jodi Rothrock of Sinking Spring, Lori K. wife of Jonathan Stegman of Reading and Sheryl L. wife of Douglas Woolley of Downingtown; six grandchildren, Rachael, Rebecca, Jared, Matthew, Nicholas and Ryan; and one brother William Rothrock of Weatherford, Texas.

A public viewing will be held Friday in Henninger Funeral Home, Inc. 229 N. 5th St. Reading from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM. Funeral service and interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Vision Resource Center of Berks County, 2020 Hampden Blvd., Reading, PA 19604.

Voices from the past. I haven't seen "Robby" for decades. But we will never forget him as our travel host, ie. driver, on our first date, on June 8, 1957, for the Key Club picnic at Bindenwood, in the big Nash sedan. He had a car full. We have been married now 56 years. But it all started there.

I grew up nearby in St. Lawrence. I regret not having crossed paths for so long. My loss.

We both regret not being able to be with you. It would have been good to pay our respects in person and speak to you all.

Bless him and all the family.

Dear Mark, Lori, Sheryl and families,
We knew your dad for thirty plus years and considered him a very good friend. We enjoyed the time that we spent with him on family vacations to OC MD, traveling to Matt's football games, and any other family functions. He leaves behind a loving and caring family. We will be among the many people who will miss him.

God Bless,
Carol and Jack Jablonski

I am in Aqua instructor at Bodyzone and Bob was in my class I enjoyed him thoroughly. He always made me laugh and always snack between the ladies in the pool sometimes I think he did it on purpose to be surrounded by all the ladies he will be missed he touched so many lives. Prayers go out to the family of Bob and I hope that you find comfort to know that he made many of us smile at Bodyzone in the pool
