Robert J. “Bob” Weirich, Jr., 75, passed away October 11, 2020, at The Highlands of Wyomissing.

I didn't know you well, Bob, but I always looked up to Suds and Dregs! When I started at Wilson in 1979, you were an icon! My condolences to your family in this very difficult year. Joanne Kosloski

Rest in peace, Bob. Your memory will always be a blessing.
A favorite memory was visiting Bob and Phyllis at their beautiful property in Robesonia.
Happily, Rick was able to visit with his "big brother" one more time before moving to South Carolina.
Our condolences to Phyllis on her loss

Bob was a friend, co-worker, and department head. Lots of memories of the years at Wilson and retiree breakfasts afterwards. Miss you, Bob. My thoughts are with you, Phyllis.

I enjoyed meeting and talking with Bob while visiting my aunt at the Highlands. I had no idea until recently Bob helped to write the Bars of Reading. He had good things to say about my grandfather's tavern Stanley's. I remember watching Bob on Johnny Carson while in college. I send my condolences, Phyllis. Thinking of you!
