Robert (Bob) Wayne Neidlinger, age 57 of Three Rivers passed away suddenly the evening of June 22, 2018.  Bob was born Feb. 22, 1961 in Three Rivers to Jerry and Irene Neidlinger.  He was the third of four children (Jim, Kim, and Kathy).  
Bob enjoyed cooking, finding a good deal, and trying the most unusual foods.  Halloween was one of his favorite holidays to celebrate, and he would pass out handfuls of candy to each kid. To those children who knew him well, he made the best hot chocolate.  He enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephew going to Corey Lake Orchard, picking apples, mushroom hunting, walking in the woods and making cookies. He was a practical joker, an avid reader, card player and loved animals and they loved him. He loved to take country cruises and experience nature. He had a lifelong love of hunting and fishing from his earliest days with his grandparents. Those were some of his fondest memories.
Bob is survived by his sisters, Kim (Mike) Olney and Kathy Sebring, best friend & brother Brett Sass, nieces and nephews, Jessica (Craig) Kohler, Kevin (Stephanie) Olney, and Allie Sebring, and great niece and nephews, Hunter Kohler, Henrik Olney, and Kathleen Olney.
He is predeceased by his grandparents, parents Jerry and Irene Neidlinger, and brother Jim Neidlinger.
The family welcomes all those who wish to celebrate Bob’s life to join them at Frankie’s by the Tracks on Friday, June 29 from 5-9 p.m.  Appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.
Memorial donations made in Bob’s memory can be directed to The Alzheimer’s Association. Envelopes are available at the funeral home. Online condolences may be left at
There is no death my friend,
People only die when we forget them.
If you can remember me,
I will be with you always
