Obituary for Donald K. Bobb

Donald K. Bobb, 91, a resident of The Highlands, Wyomissing, passed away Tuesday, March 9, 2021. He was the son of the late Dr. Arthur A. Bobb and the late Arlene Klinger Bobb. He is survived by his dear wife, Margaret (Peggy) Nuss Bobb, who he married in September 1952.

Donald was a graduate of Reading High School ’47, Lafayette College ’51, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Law ’56.

He served as an Army Infantry Communications Officer during the Korean War (1952-1953) earning the Combat Infantry Badge and a Bronze Star for Meritorious Service.

He joined the Reading law firm of Snyder, Balmer, & Kershner in 1956 and retired from the successor firm of Mogel, Speidel, Bobb, & Kershner in January 2001. He served as Secretary, and later, as President, of the Berks County Bar Association. He was one of the Founder-Directors of the Berks County Estate Planning Council. On November 7, 1983, he was elected a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Council.

He was one of the Founder-Directors of Family Guidance Institute and served several terms as its President and Solicitor. He served as Solicitor to the Spring Township School District and later as Chairman of the Wilson School Authority. He was Solicitor to the Berks County Recorder of Deeds (the “Hilgendorf Era”) for more than 23 years.

He is survived by his daughter, Deborah Fleming (husband, James), Harrisburg, his son, John M. Bobb (wife, Kathryn), West Lawn, and his daughter, Amy Weyman (husband, Greg), Gaithersburg, MD. He relished his many fun and book reading times with his grandchildren: Christopher, Daniel, Meghan, Elliot, Madeline, and Jacob, and his great grandchildren: Parker and Sophie. He was tragically predeceased in September 1991 by both his dear sister, Alice Bobb Brendel, a Librarian at Brown University, and her daughter, Emily Brendel. He is survived by his brother, Dr. Arthur A. Bobb, Jr., Stuart, FL.

He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Reading, and served it as Lay-Leader, Vestry member, and as a member on various Church committees. He was a Trinity cook for the Reading Shelter and served as a cook for Trinity Hunger Breakfasts, where he introduced the congregation to grits. He also prepared various cookbooks, including a Trinity Cookbook (to celebrate Trinity’s 250th Anniversary) and a very special Family Cookbook for his children and grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Donald’s memory may be offered to Trinity Lutheran Church, 527 Washington St, Reading, PA 19601, or to the Highlands Endowment Fund, 2000 Cambridge Ave, Wyomissing, PA 19610.

So sorry to hear of the passing of your dad and husband. He was there to guide me through some dark moments and when Mike and I purchased our home in Sinking Spring. So many Trinity connected memories ... I hope you are all, otherwise, doing well. Renee (Carl) Long

We were very sad to read of "Uncle Donald's" passing. We will always remember him for his sense of humor and calm demeanor. My mother and Maria always looked forward to his annual "Prince of Passion" Valentine's Day card. We have many great memories of Donald and the entire Bobb family.
Best regards, Dave and Maria DeTurck.

Donald was my brother from a different Mother. We had so many laughs together. He used to send out valentines cards to all his women friends and sent funny jokes to others. He compiled a book of quotations called “The Dog Barks but the Caravan Moves On”. We used to go to get hot dogs together in downtown Reading...”two with everything”.

I will most remember him for his level-headed thinking and his compassion. I will miss him dearly.
