Robert (Bob) Redlow, 78, of Warminster, PA was born on February 6th, 1944 and passed away on February 5th 2023 from Parkinson’s Disease at home surrounded by his family just one day shy of his 79th birthday. Bob was preceded in death by his parents Albert Sr. Redlow and Matilda (Rickert) and his oldest brother, Albert Jr. Bob has a brother William (Bill) Redlow and wife Nova who reside in Florida. Bob was married to his high school sweetheart, Barbara (Stradling) Redlow, for 55 years. Bob and Barbara have 2 children, Wendy Redlow Kerr (husband David) of Palmyra, and Andrew Redlow (wife Nadia), of Warminster. Nadia also lovingly served as his caregiver for his last 6 months. Bob is also survived by his greatest blessings, his 5 grandchildren, Gavin, Nina, Landon, Emelia and Ryan.
Bob joined the US Navy in 1968 and served for 5 years on the USS Yancey out of Portsmouth, VA. After serving his country, Bob used his education from Drexel University to begin a career at Sun Oil Company in Philadelphia as a Tax Accountant. Bob worked at Sunoco until his retirement in 2006. In his free time, he played tennis, golf, volleyball, and softball for many years.
Upon retirement, Bob purchased a sailboat in 1999 and became captain of his two sailboats: Serenity and Narrow Escape. Captain Bob and his first mate Barb, spent most weekends from April – October sailing in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland up until 2021. They met many friends sailing and enjoyed many adventures with their friends at Mears Point Marina in Kent Narrows, Maryland.
Bob was a loving and patient father and husband who enjoyed travelling to Hilton Head Island every summer and ski trips to various places around the country every winter. He enjoyed teaching his kids how to play tennis, baseball, and softball. He especially loved watching his kids’ sporting events. He was always there for them whether it was teaching them to pitch a baseball, teaching them to drive, or helping them pass their accounting class. Bob was affectionately known as BopBop to his 5 grandkids. He loved watching them play softball, soccer and attended many dance recitals. His grandkids loved spending time with him sailing, hiking, playing ball and attending Phillies and Eagles games together. They miss him so very much.
Bob was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease about 12 years prior to passing from this horrible, degenerative disease. He did not let this disease slow him down from traveling with his bride. They enjoyed many trips especially to Italy, London, Vietnam, Greece, Alaska and most recently a train ride through the Rocky Mountains.
A Military Honors Service will be held at Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, PA on Tuesday May 9th at 1PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in his name.
