Robert F. Balzerick

August 23, 1934 – February 20, 2019

Preceded in death by parents, Walter and Louise, and brother, Wally of Wichita, KS.  Survived by beloved wife of 62 years, Connie; daughter, Robbie Rotschafer (Randy); grandchildren: Nic Rotschafer (Kara), Amee Yost (Micah), Hannah Rotschafer, and Stephen Rotschafer; eight nieces; one nephew; two great-grandchildren.

Bob worked for 45 years for General Motors/Chevrolet as a marketing manager.  He always went to work with a smile on his face and came home whistling. He was past president and small business counselor of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) and the Small Business Association.  For many years he was a “grandpa volunteer” for the Junior Golf League of Oak Hills.  Bob was a member of the Golden K Kiwanis Club, where his favorite volunteer project was serving at Conestoga Magnet School.  Mr. B, as he was known to the students, read to kindergarteners and entertained them with magic tricks and puppets. He was also known to assist Santa with handing out candy canes and jingle bells.

PRIVATE FAMILY SERVICES.  For memorials, the family suggests donations of mittens and hats to Conestoga Magnet School OPS.

    So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. He was one of the best Chevy guys I ever worked with. The reference to a constant smile on his face is right on the mark. Bob had the unique ability to make you feel better about your day, no matter what. He will be sorely missed. RIP Old Friend.

    My deepest sympathies to the family…
