Toni, how sweet of you to remember us after so many years. Miss so many of you from my long ago Wild’s days. Your message means the world to me as we did share so much as a work family.

Bob will surely be missed – A loyal and maybe the first customer we had at J H Brubaker, beginning April 1st 1972 and was the favorite of almost all of our sales people. Have comfort in knowing Bob is in the presence of our Lord and Savior JESUS – Blessings to all the family members !

Condolence from Debra Aument Conrey on July 1st, 2020 12:12 pm

To family of Uncle Bob. Our family has lived in Texas and Georgia all of our lives, but visits to Pennsylvania to visit Grandma, Uncles, Aunts and the millions of cousins left a lasting impression on us all. I am so sorry for your loss. He was an amazing, talented man and I cannot believe he was 98. I lost my Dad in his 50’s (Uncle Pete) and did not have all of these years of memories with him, God bless you all and know that you are in our families prayers

Condolence from Fred R Hashinger III on July 2nd, 2020 10:23 pm

The cool thing is that Uncle Bob and my Dad were in business together. So, we always had a good time together, family reunions and even after my Dad passed . . . Uncle Bob helped me work on my house on Chestnut Street. Mike and I were a few years apart and Tommy was younger. Susie was the youngest one. So sorry for your loss. Thinking of all of you at this time and remembering you all.

Condolence from Jack and Ann Willett on July 3rd, 2020 3:32 pm

Mr. Aument was so much more than a good neighbor! He enriched our lives with his stories of World War II and his varied life experiences. He was our local historian. His character was an example of hard work, responsibility, and self-discipline.

We are so grateful to have known him!
