Obituary

 

His Legacy… Robert James Beitel, 81, passed away June 24, 2020.  He was born on June 23, 1939, in Detroit, Michigan to William John Beitel and Elin (Sundin) Beitel. Robert married the love of his life, Judy (Froehlich) Beitel, on February 19, 1959, in Pinckney, Michigan.   He will be remembered as a loving husband, father and grandfather.  He was always a jokester and liked making people smile.  Robert enjoyed gardening, especially tomatoes and pumpkins, and amateur radio.  He was a city boy turned outdoorsman.  After retirement his passion for the “UP” drew him up there half the year to hunt and enjoy God’s creations.  He loved his family dearly and took great delight in his grandchildren.  Robert is going to be deeply missed.
