Robert “Bob” Howard Kehr

Robert “Bob” Howard Kehr, age 74, of Ottsville, PA, died peacefully at Doylestown Hospital with his loving wife by his side on Sunday, June 18, 2023.  Bob was born on Saturday, March 5, 1949, in Jersey City, NJ, to the late George Kehr and Florence (Pangborn) Kehr.

Bob’s survivors include his beloved wife of 39 years, Marianne Kehr; his mother-in-law, Wilma Wichterich of Hellertown, PA; and his sister, Arlene King of Point Pleasant, NJ.

Bob retired as a Union HVAC Technician & Mechanic and Certified Welder.  He was a handyman who was skilled in all trades.  Bob could build and fix almost anything.  In fact, he and his wife, Marianne, built many of the buildings on their homestead and Bob handcrafted many of the furniture pieces that adorn their home.  He had a huge heart and was a giver, never a taker.  Bob was an outstanding provider doing everything for his bride and always supporting her in her interests and hobbies like scuba diving, photography and raising and riding her horses.  Marianne describes Bob as her whole world and as the finest man she has ever known.  Their love and Bob’s memory will live on forever.

Bob’s family will be remembering his life privately.  Cremation was private.

The family sends their most heartfelt thanks to everyone at Doylestown Hospital who so lovingly cared for Bob during his illness.

Bob’s family has entrusted his care to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory in Mechanicsburg, (717) 766-3421.  Read Bob’s full obituary, view his photograph, offer condolences and sympathy, share stories and memories, upload photographs and videos, light a candle and sign his official guest book by visiting
