ROBERT C. MACCLOSKEY

Bob MacCloskey, age 94, passed away on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 in his Wilmington home.

Like so many of his generation Bob led an amazing life. Born and raised in Kennett Square, Bob was proud of his heritage and continued to meet with his high school classmates, however small the group became. Bob spent his adult years in Wilmington raising two sons in Deerhurst, building a career in insurance, and enjoying a long and active retirement. With his wife of over 50 years, Bob traveled to all 50 states and Europe, enjoyed summers in the Eastern Shore of Virginia and later snow birding in Florida. Bob was also an avid golfer.

Bob is survived by his son Bob Jr. and daughter-in-law Ellie. He was predeceased by his wife Evelyn (known by all as Dot) and son Guy.

Family and friends may call at McCrery & Harra Funeral Home, 3924 Concord Pike, Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday morning, May 16, between 10 and 11. A memorial service will follow. Interment will be private.
