Robert, (Bob), Edward Calesaric Sr., age 77, passed away at home in Grand Rapids, Michigan on December 28, 2020.

Bob was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania on April 9, 1943.

He played college football and graduated from Butler Community College in Kansas, where he studied education. Bob was a previous small business owner and was Vice-President of marketing for the Swift company. He loved to spend time with his long-time girlfriend/best friend, Rose Porter of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Bob enjoyed the casinos of Michigan and spending time with his friends and family. Bob was a huge sports fan, and was especially a loyal fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bob was a friend to everyone he met and always had an interesting story or two to share. Bob loved boating, waterskiing, camping and coaching youth football.

Bob was preceded in death by his father, Stephen Calesaric, mother Marion Calesaric, wife, Janet Calesaric, and brother Stephen Calesaric, Jr.

He is survived by his daughter, Karen (Kay) Pastor; son-in-law, Dan Pastor; granddaughter, Becky Sue Bunch of Palmetto Florida; son, Robert Calesaric Jr,; daughter-in-law, April Calesaric; grandsons, Jack and Jake Calesaric of Granville, Ohio; granddaughter, Sydney Calesaric of Columbus, Ohio; one nephew, two nieces and their families.

A debt of gratitude is owed to Abby and Job Murphy and their family in Grand Rapids for all of their assistance, and for being a part of Bob’s second family.

Ofield Funeral Home will be in charge of the arrangements. There will be no funeral service at this time. A celebration of life will be planned in the future, post pandemic. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the World Health Organization or your local community efforts to assist in the combat against Covid-19.
