Robert (Bob) R. Rothmund , age 87, of Quakertown died on Saturday, January 9, 2021. He was the husband of the late Joan (Dietz) Rothmund and the son of the late John and Verna Rothmund. Bob was a life-long resident of Quakertown, PA. He was born on April 13, 1933 as the 2nd of 4 children. After graduating from Quakertown High School, he was drafted into the United States Army during the Korean War. Upon returning from the service, he worked for Bethlehem Steel. Bob had a rare gift for dowsing for water sources using an apple branch. His gift made him an invaluable employee of Wonsidler Well Drilling where he worked for over 50 years until his retirement. Although Bob was known as a man of few words, no matter where he went in town he always seemed to run into someone he had done work for and knew him. He was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Joan. The two were inseparable as they raised two children, enjoyed camping, and traveled. Many nights after dinner there were family games of whiffle ball, pool volleyball or bike riding. Bob and Joan were also blessed to have some life-long friends who they would get together with regularly to play pinochle. Another thing Bob loved to do was bowl. He was a teammate for Chestnut Hill UCC in a church league for over 50 years. In addition to the bowling team, Bob served on the Council at church for a time and still enjoyed going to worship regularly. He is survived by two siblings, Delores (Rothmund) Krewson and Clairmont Rothmund, his daughter Cheryl Lawrence and her husband Perry, his son Daryl Rothmund and his wife Joan, grandsons: Nicholas Wyllie, Otto Rothmund, and Forest Rothmund. He was predeceased by his sister, Betty (Rothmund) Priestas and great-grandson Benjamin Smith. Plans for a memorial will be announced by his family in the future. Arrangements are in the care of the C. R. Strunk Funeral Home, Inc. (www.crsrunk.com) Quakertown.
