Obituary for Robert G. Eveland

Robert G. Eveland, 70, of Bern Twp. passed away at Reading Hospital on December 11, 2020.

He was the loving husband of Donna J. (Browning) Eveland. Robert and Donna met at the age of 14. Donna was the love of his life since that day. They were married November 14, 1970, and just recently celebrated 50 years of marriage.

Born in Reading, he was the son of the late Robert W. and Jean (Habecker) Eveland.

He was a graduate of Reading High School in 1968, where he excelled in cross-country. Bob was honored with the Outstanding Team Member award his senior year. He attended Bloomsburg University and graduated from the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey, PA.

Bob served as a K9 handler for the West Reading Police Department for 18 years. He went on to become the Police Chief of Wyomissing Hills for ten years retiring in 2002. Most recently, Bob was a real estate agent with his daughter: Kylie at Berkshire Hathaway.

My heartfelt condolences to the Eveland Family. I had the pleasure of knowing Bob when I was an Assistant Manager for Leesport Bank (now Tompkins VIST Bank) in Bern Township. He was always a joy to talk to, always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell.
He also served as my dad's realtor when my dad was looking to buy a home. Although I have not seen him in a few years, I have fond memories of him and will cherish those memories. Lifting up his family, friends, and loved ones in prayers for comfort and peace at this difficult time.
Rest easy, Bob. Not goodbye, simply until we meet again

Bob and I worked many a midnight shift together as patrol officers for our respective departments. During that time we shared many a story over coffee. Eventually both of us becoming Chiefs and continuing to work together. Bob was one of a kind and will be missed. Jeff Biehl Wyomissing Chief Retired.
