Robert "Bob" Allen Roenigk, 62 of Natrona Heights, PA, passed away Tuesday, September 1, 2020, after a battle and strong fight with cancer. Bob was the sixth child of W. L. Roenigk and Jeanne Roenigk of Saver, PA. A 1975 graduate of Freeport High School, Bob began his career in truck driving. He was not only an owner-operator who leased his truck to W. L. Roenigk but also a load broker with his vehicles, and a company driver for Wayne W. Sells and Freeport Transport Inc. Bob was the "big man" who helped oversee the W. L. R. Co. Trucking Division as a dispatcher and a driver concierge. He loved driving so much that he continued working up until three weeks before his passing.

Bob left a large, loving impression with everyone he knew and cared dearly for all. He often would say "Love You" at the end of his conversation or partings and would wait to see if it was said in return. Bob was proud of his family and enjoyed working on the farm with his children and grandchildren. He took time when off the road to visit with his friends. Bob could never pass up a good beer and a great story. God's mercy was giving him the time to say his goodbyes; it was indeed the best gift that he could have received.

As an individual who deeply loved the old ways of life, Bob could often be found spending his time bailing hay, tending his gardens, working on his tractor, and watching old western movies. He loved anything that had a "rustic look" and believed in cherishing antique and old items. Bob was a loving husband who treated his wife like a "cowboy that loved his bride." He would often sit on the wooden front porch swing beside her and quietly swing by her side. Bob would protect her name and stand by her honor, no matter what. He was the John Wayne of his time and will always be remembered as the large man with an ever-larger heart.

Bob is survived by his wife, Janet Roenigk of Natrona Heights, his children James (Hannah) Gonzales of Broken Arrow, Ok., Robert (Crystal) Gonzales of Templeton, Pa., Nicholas Gonzales of Natrona Heights, Pa., Zane (Bethany) Clark, of Brackenridge, Pa., Jacob (Carly) Roenigk of Sarver, Pa., Luke Roenigk of Cheswick, Pa. Grandchildren, Heidi Marroquin, Robert Gonzales Jr., Layla Schwickrath, Terry Gonzales, Noah Gonzales, Nicholas Gonzales, Hunter Gonzales, Miles Clark, and Torren Clark. He is also survived by five brothers and four sisters and many nieces and nephews.

Bob was preceded in death by his father, W. L. Roenigk, and two brothers W. L. Roenigk Jr. and Fred Keville. Family and friends welcome Sunday, September 6th, from 12-3 pm and 6-8 pm at R.J. Slater Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 1000 Freeport Rd., New Kensington, Pa., 15068. Service will follow the viewing at 8 pm at the Funeral Home.

Janet and Family,

I am very sorry for your loss. Bob was one of my oldest and best friends for 30 years. The world was a richer place because of the "Big Man"
Bob will be missed. Rest in peace.
