Robert E. (Bob) Holler, 68, of Peru, Indiana lost his five year battle with melanoma and went to be with God on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

Bob was born in Peru, Indiana on December 15, 1952 to Janet Lou and John W. “Bill” Holler, both preceded him in death. He was one brother of the first set of triplets born in Miami County. Sadly, his two brothers Ronald and Rodney died shortly after being born. Bob graduated from Peru High School in 1971. He was drafted into the Army, one of the last drafted out of Miami County, in April 1972 where he was honorably discharged in 1974. He served the City of Peru as a police officer from December 1981 to December 2003. He was also part of the Miami County EMS from 1982 to 1990. Bob was a workhorse. Over the years, he often drove semis hauling several different freights, including propane, ethanol, and gasoline. In 2019, he retired from Eby Transport.

Bob loved truck and tractor pulls, classic cars, and the show Heavy Rescue. He also liked going to the family’s lake place in Edwardsburg, MI on the weekends spending time with family and friends. He also enjoyed playing Euchre and Sequence with his family, even if his cards were always lousy.

He married Doreen Kaczmarek on June 10, 1989. He is survived by her and their three children, a daughter Alexis (Craig) Nutt (Mexico), a son Bobby Holler (Peru), and a daughter Molly Holler (Peru). He also has two grandchildren, Blake and Riley who he loved very much.

Surviving is a brother Brian Richmond (Peru). He is preceded in death by his brother Bill (Ginny) Holler and also a step-father Robert “Doug” Richmond.
