ROBERT CHARLES REAMAN, 95, died at Lima Manor on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 11:30p.m.
Born on November 10, 1922, at St. Rita’s Hospital in Lima, Ohio, to Marcus and Dora (Bock) Reaman.
Bob grew up in Lima and went to school at St. Gerard Catholic School. Before his retirement in 1985, he worked for Sieferd Hossellman Company for 39 years. He married the love of his life, Joanne, on May 21, 1949, at St. John’s Catholic Church.
Bob had a real passion for playing cards, especially Euchre and Bridge, whenever and wherever he could get a game together with family or friends. He enjoyed most sports as a spectator but his real love was playing golf. Among his most memorable moments on the golf course was his Hole in One on #3 at Springbrook. Bob was proud of telling friends that the only club in his bag that he ever got re-gripped was his ball retriever.
He was a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus and belonged to the Serra Club and Eagles #370. He was an active member of St. Gerard’s and St. Charles parishes and volunteered at the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents and all eight siblings: Cornelia, Alfred, Chester, Edna, Donald, and Harold Reaman, Eleanor Waltz, and Dorothy Siefer.
