Uncle Bob slipped away from us unexpectedly on Monday July 11, 2022. He was born on September 25, 1939. He was 1 of 14 children and the last surviving son of Fern and Carroll Weideman. 

He started working at an early age by helping out the nearby farmers in the area.  He worked for Stokley’s in Peru.  He graduated Peru High school in 1958. He was an Army veteran having served in the Korean Conflict. Bob who was known as the “Ole Man” retired from Haynes International after 37 years of service as a sonic inspector.

Bob was a member of the Masonic Lodge in New Waverly, and Walton. He served as Master Mason in 1965. He joined the Eastern Star in Logansport and was a member at Gilead. He was a 50 year member. He previously attended church at Skinner Chapel, Twelve Mile and Hoover Church, Hoover.

He was a man of few words with a compassionate heart. He met the love of his life, Marthagene Richardson. They married, June 25, 1966 at the Oakdale Baptist Church in Peru, Indiana and they did everything together. He loved spending time with family, watching sports, and solving the world’s problems on his front porch with a cup of coffee and a slice of chocolate zucchini bread. Bob was a Hoyle master and enjoyed a good game of euchre. He will be remembered by many and missed by more who knew him personally and loved him dearly.
