Robert E. VanScoy, Jr. (Bob), 59, residing in Huron, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 11th, 2023 after a brief illness.
Bob was born on February 20th, 1964 to the late Robert and Geraldine (Lowe) VanScoy in Huntington, West Virginia.
Bob graduated from Sandusky High School in 1982. He was a career police officer, serving 26 years with the Sandusky Police Department, reaching the rank of Lieutenant, until his retirement in 2014. He was also a member of the Sandusky Marine Patrol. After retirement, Bob turned his focus to his real estate career, becoming a team with his wife, Patti. Together, they proudly served the local community for 11 years. He earned many awards for his efforts as a Realtor, being recognized as one of the best agents in the area.
Bob was an avid fisherman, enjoying the sport with his good friends and his brother. He always enjoyed working with his hands and finishing projects around the house. He also enjoyed watching NASCAR races every Sunday with his wife and father-in-law, even attending a few races in person. Bob enjoyed traveling with Patti, especially to Florida and Maine, to visit family and spend some relaxing time together.
Above all, Bob was the proudest dad and the proudest grandpa. He and Patti enjoyed every minute they got to spend raising their daughter, Alex. And they found one of life's greatest joys in spending precious time with their grandson, Cameron.
Left to mourn his loss are his wife of 34 years, Patricia; his daughter, Alexandria (Tyler) Lacey; his grandson, Cameron Lacey; brother, Bill (Cheryl) VanScoy; sisters-in-law, Wendy Fahning and Lisa Hoffman; parents-in-law, Larry and Carmel Hoffman; niece, Danielle (Patrick) Moody; nephews, William VanScoy, Dereck VanScoy, and Cody Crandall-Hoffman; several aunts, uncles, and cousins; and a host of wonderful friends.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Geraldine VanScoy, his maternal and paternal grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives. We find comfort in knowing that he is now reunited with his family and friends in Heaven and know that he will be there waiting to give us a big hug someday.
Friends and family may call on Thursday, October 19, 2023, from 10 - 11:45 AM at St. Peter Catholic Church, 430 Main St., Huron 44839. Beginning at 11:45 there will be a brief Prayer Service followed by Mass at noon. Burial will follow at Peaks Cemetery, 7815 Darrow Rd., Berlin Heights 44814.
