Robert D. “Bob” Kaiser

Robert D. “Bob” Kaiser, 76, of West 1st Rd., Walkerton, Ind., died after a long and courageous battle with cancer at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2004, in Memorial Hospital, South Bend.

Born in LaPaz, Ind., on April 26, 1928, Bob was the son of Walter L. and Lillian A. Divine Kaiser. He graduated from Tyner High School with the class of 1946.

On November 2, 1946, in Mishawaka, Bob and Ruby Baughman were married.

He worked at Wells Aluminum, North Liberty, Ind., for 22 years. He retired from farming in 2003. He loved farming and looked upon it more as enjoyment than work.

A sociable man, Bob enjoyed his family. He loved attending his grandchildren’s sporting events, playing cards, fishing and mushroom hunting.

He was a member of the Shalom Fellowship Church and the Tyner Odd Fellow Lodge.

He is survived by Ruby, his wife of 57 years and by their children: two sons and a daughter. His sons are Dennis and Pamela Kaiser and David Kaiser and companion, Dawn Hooker, all of Walkerton. His daughter is Sharon and Randy Klingerman of South Bend.

Five grandsons also survive. They are: David Malstaff, Walkerton; Dennis Kaiser, Jr., Walkerton; Jeff Kaiser, North Liberty; Jason and Kevin Kaiser, Walkerton. Three granddaughters, Robyn and Jamie Klingerman, South Bend and Erica Kaiser, Walkerton, survive as well, together with two great-grandchildren: Dillon Kaiser, Walkerton, and Natalee Kaiser, North Liberty.

Two brothers, Keith and Nancy Kaiser, Bremen, and Harold and Leslie Kaiser, Mishawaka, also survive together with a sister, Evedene and Jack Wilhelm, Plymouth.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents.

Friends will be welcomed by the family at the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St., Plymouth, on Thursday, June 24, 2004, from 4 to 8 p.m. An I.O.O.F. service by the Tyner Lodge #821 will be held at 8 p.m. in the funeral home.
