Obituary for Robert "Bob" James Papandria

Robert “Bob” James Papandria, 68, of Greenwood, passed away on September 4, 2018.

Robert was born in South Bend to Anthony Papandria Sr. and Rosemary Chause on December 9, 1949. After his mother’s death, Anthony remarried to Esther Jane Papandria who became a wonderful mother to Robert and his two brothers. He attended St. Joseph High School in South Bend and graduated from Marian College where he met the love of his life. Robert married Julie Wurtz on July 1, 1972 in Indianapolis.

Robert worked as a CPA at Deloitte, Bendix and devoted 20 years at Honeywell where he retired. He was always thinking of his next project. He loved building and fixing anything he could find. He had a love for tools, his tractor and most of all his family. He adored his grandchildren and could always make them laugh. He had a personality that was larger than life. He was full of jokes, facts about anything and everything and he always had a plan. He had a heart of gold that was always ready to help someone in need and he made this a world a better place by being in it. He will be dearly missed.

Robert was preceded in death by his mother, Rosemary Chause; mother, Esther Jane Riffel; and his father, Anthony Papandria, Sr.

Robert is survived by his wife, Julie Wurtz Papandria; sons, Nicholas (Michelle) Papandria and Christopher (Stacey) Papandria; brothers, Anthony Papandria, Jr. and David Papandria; and grandchildren, Logan, Ella, and Ryan.
