Robert L. Monroe, age 63, of San Jose, Calif., and formerly of Berwick, went to be with his loving Savior on March 17, 2016.

Robert was born Feb. 17, 1953, in Williamsport, to the late Vernon Robert Monroe and his living mother, Dolores Ney Monroe McCormick.

Robert attended Berwick High School and graduated from Bloomsburg University on May 11, 1985, cum laude, with a degree in Special Education Emotional I Behavioral Disorders. Robert taught at Boeger Middle School and at San Martin/Gwinn Elementary School. He served in the Army’s 101st Airborne. Robert also painted many railroad cars at the Berwick Forge in his younger days.

He is survived by his loving devoted daughter, Bobbi Lynn Monroe, who flew from Dubai several times a year to spend time with her Dad and on the golf course with him. He will be sadly missed by his beloved granddaughter, Annika; they spent time baking and building things. He will be missed by his beloved fiancée Lizzie Munoz, R.N., who was the love of his life and never left his side; his niece, Analiza Monroe Caldwell, who was his phone confidante for many hours at a time. Robert will be missed by his faithful friend, Neal Schulman. He always thanked his mother Dolores for giving him life, and always told us to thank God for his many blessings and the creations the Lord has given us. He is survived by his brothers: Vaughn, David Gary, Eugene, and his sister, Judy Keck; stepbrother and stepsister Glenn and Margaret.

Robert one time flew 3,000 miles back to Pennsylvania to ask for forgiveness to someone he thought he had wronged many years ago, then flew back home. He made three to four trips a year without telling his family he was coming home to surprise them. One year, he flew in for two days to be with his mother for Mother’s Day. He will be missed by so many, and the many phone calls his brother Eugene made to his brother every day for years; his beloved Aunt Shirley Bursa and Aunt Beverly Hellenthal he loved so much, and will be missed by Uncle Abe and Aunt Jenny Monroe by going to their farm to sit and chat. His brother David always sent him things from home, even the parking meter from Berwick, plus the famous grape pie that sort of crumbled in transport, and the many letters David wrote to Robert with uplifting stories and always Scripture. Robert always came in with a big smile to surprise his sister Judy at her place of work. Robert had three other children: Robbie, Meredith and Adam.

Robert donated his body to medical science in hopes that what is found can one day help others with cancer.
