Obituary for Robert Kegel

Robert “Bob” Kegel, 81, of Horsham, PA passed away at Abington Hospital on Monday June 17, 2019 from complications associated with a previously scheduled surgical procedure. Bob was born in Camden, NJ on April 6, 1938 to the late Charles and Florence (Reeve) Kegel. Bob spent his childhood on the golf course playing golf and making money caddying. He also liked to play baseball, basketball, and cause some occasional mischief with his friends. Bob graduated from Palmyra High School in 1956 before moving to Horsham to be in the used car manager at C&C Ford in Horsham. It was then that he met his wife of 50 years, Patricia. It was love at first sight on a fateful afternoon at Dutch’s diner in Horsham (now Lancer’s). They soon married and had two children of their own. Based out of Horsham where he lived the rest of his life, Bob built a long and successful career in the automobile industry, was well known and liked at Old York Road Country Club at which he was a member of for 41 years, and often complained about walking his dog, which he secretly really loved every second of. Bob worked hard, lived hard and to the fullest, and was grateful for everything he had. He was a strong man, a strong negotiator, a strong parent, and commanded respect in every situation, from everyone he encountered. He would never hesitate to sacrifice himself to take care of the ones close to him. He loved his wife, his children and his family. He loved the Eagles and was patiently waiting for the next season. He will truly be missed by everyone he knew and we want to take this opportunity to thank him for every second of his life. Along with his wife Patricia, he is survived by his children: Jason Kegel, Tara Cox (Rich), Sherri Orton; a stepdaughter Tricia Harold; grandchildren: Aidan, Ethan, Sydney, Alexandra, Victoria, Holly, Steven, Charity, Tiffany, and Michael; 17 great-grandchildren; 2 sisters Linda Dodulik and Bonnie Wayne. Relatives and friends are invited to his Funeral Service on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 11 AM at the Emil J. Ciavarelli Family Funeral Homes and Crematory, 951 E. Butler Pike, Ambler, PA 19002. A viewing will be held from 9 AM to 11 AM at the Funeral Home. Interment will be in Whitemarsh Memorial Park, Ambler. Condolences may be made at www.ciavarellifuneralhomes.com.
