Obituary

90, passed away on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at the JGJ Nursing Facility at the Hilltop Campus.  He is survived by his loving wife of 69 years Doris; sons Robert (Nancy) Fiedler; Timothy (Kim) Fiedler; Daniel (Effe) Fiedler; grandchildren Justin (Jennifer) Fiedler; Nathaniel (Kaylee) Fiedler; Danielle (Ryan) Tronovitch; Trevor, Julia, Nicoletta and Gabriella Fiedler; great grandchildren Owen and London Fiedler; Avalyn and Tyler Tronovitch; and another Fiedler girl on the way; several nieces and nephews.  Bob was born in Marquette, MI in 1929, lived in Germany from 1934 – 1947, but has resided in the Triple Cities since 1948.  After a difficult childhood in war-torn Germany, Bob appreciated his US citizenship and the freedoms afforded to him in the US with utmost patriotism.  He went on to serve in the US Army and was a proud veteran of the Korean War having served with the 2nd Engineer (Combat) Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Division.  Bob was a member of the 2nd Infantry Division Korean War Veterans Alliance, former President of the 2nd Engineer Combat Battalion Association, and a founding member of the Korean War Veterans of the Southern Tier.   After serving his country, Bob worked for IBM for 34 years as a mechanical engineer.  After retiring Bob found a passion for both genealogy and supporting our active duty troops overseas.  He was a great role model to his family as a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather (“Opa”).  He was a true gentleman and will be missed by all who knew him.  The family would like to thank the staff at Hilltop for their care and compassion during Bob’s stay.  A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday at 1pm, at the Barber Memorial Home, Inc., 428 Main St, Johnson City.  The family will receive friends on Saturday from 11:00am until the time of the service at the Barber Memorial Home.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bob’s memory to the 204th Family Readiness Group, c/o Kristen Fuller, Treasurer, 3572 Grandview Street, Binghamton, NY 13903.
