Margie and girls and families……..These memorials are beautiful but somehow, they can not fully express the debt and gratitude so very many of us have felt for this great man. He will leave such a wonderful legacy with his family and his multitude of friends. Somehow, I believe in my heart, that this is the way God intended for all of us. Bob showed us deep respect, love, sincerity and integrity just by the way he lived his life. God bless all of you for the part you played in the making of this great guy!!
Love and prayers,

Bob was a Driver and a Gentlemen extraordinaire, the greatest of dads to Annette, Cathy and Debra and their wonderful families. Since I had an opportunity to be part of the Willerton express around 1980-1983 I was privileged to see Bob have his dinner ready “on time” after a typically long day in the UPS truck, but meeting clients was a great “art with Bob” he knew when to talk “returns” vs “pick ups” vs. local football and basketball happenings in the OVAC, Bob was an excellent golfer and enjoyed many times out at Maz, Beckwood and Powhatan. I loved to see his smile and professional demeanor and I significantly looked up to this Great Man, Great Dad, Greatest Husband, and Good Friend to many, and many people. We were blessed to have Bob and his family in our lives, and we could not be prouder of their broad success, high class and kindness that they inject into the Ohio Valley. We are all so much better off with a Willerton smile, or a Willerton rule that we put to good use even today with our own families. You always knew where you stood with Mr. Willerton, he was a Man of Character and a Man of His Word – the best kind of Man to Be! He would expect us all to carry on the good fight for our Country, our Families, our Community, and our Faith – expecting us to help someone less fortunate than ourselves. Bob was a very kind person whom I often looked up to as a father. Our deepest sympathy to Marge, such a fine, fine wife and awesome Grandma; to Annette and Randy and family and to Cathy and her family and to Debra and her family, thank you for sharing your Fine father with the community as many, many people loved him and learned from him. I know I did. Please call us at anytime for anything you may need; our fondest memories and deepest sympathy, we remain, With Love and Respect, The Tekelys Jimmy, Vickie, Lauren, Chad, Jim Sr. and Ellen Ann BHS PS: I would support a Robert Willerton Scholarship Award program; let me know if I could assist. We should all pass on the greatness that we garnered from Bob. I just smile when I think of his warm face and loving personality SMILE FOR THE GREAT MEN AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO BE JUST LIKE HIM – THE BEST

Nikki and I shared Myrtle Beach vacations with family, including Bob. She was little then. and just 2 summers ago, we were at their home, enjoying a game of corn hole and roasting marshmallows. Bob always had a kind word and a funny story. The memories are bittersweet. Rest in peace,, Good Man. You will always be missed.
