Obituary of Robert Krebs
Pavilion ~ Robert "Bob" Lawrence Krebs passed away peacefully at home under hospice care, surrounded by his family, on March 13, 2018.
Bob was born on June 16, 1948 in Rochester, N.Y., and was a long-time resident of Genesee County. He attended LeRoy Central Schools and served in the Vietnam War from 1968 - 1970. Upon returning from the war, he spent his time working and raising his family. He loved cars from the time he was a young boy and was a self-taught expert car mechanic (his avocation), who enjoyed doing body work and restoring antique cars. He was a regular attendee of local antique car shows. Bob was an extrovert, who loved being around people (especially at the Pok-A-Dot diner in Batavia), and we will miss hearing his stories and jokes.
Bob is survived by his wife, Nancy Lee (Main) Krebs; his children, Terri (Mike) Laurie, Rick (Donna) Krebs, Cyril (Patty) Krebs; his nephew, Skip Main; his grandchildren, Ricky Jr., Jamie, Jacob and Sara; his step-grandchildren, Eric, Meghan, Krystal, Jessica, Terra, Trevor and Ashley; sisters, Cheryl (Steve) Lapham and Linda (Paul) Klich and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Cyril Irwin and Marie Constance (Paladino) Krebs and his infant son, Robert Krebs Jr.
Special thanks goes out to his niece, Tiffany Hoag, a nursing assistant, who provided loving care when he became sick and to the Pok-A-Dot crew for always helping out and being great friends.
A Celebration of Bob's life will be held on Saturday, May 19 starting at 12:00 P.M. at the Pavilion Fire Dept. recreation hall.
