Robert E. “Bob” Ermeling, of Saint Charles, Missouri, passed away Thursday, September 3, 2020 at the age of 81.  Loving husband of the late Carol Ermeling; beloved son of the late Erwin and Catherine Ermeling; devoted father of Ronald (Karen) Ermeling and Steven (Tiffany) Ermeling; cherished grandfather of Gina (Doug) Jones, Heather Hoffman-Castillo, Ashley Lines, Joe (Hayley) Bryant, April Ermeling, Tyler (Andrea) Bryant, Ethan Ermeling, and Evan Ermeling; treasured great-grandfather of Logan Jones, Kaedyn Bommarito-Bryant, Zoe Jones, Olivia Jones, Leland Presley, Harper Bryant, Kinsley Presley; dear brother of the late Erwin “Erv” Ermeling; and brother-in-law of Regina Ermeling.

Bob served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.  He was a hard-working carpenter for many years, and owned Jehling Hardware for more than 40 years.  He enjoyed model trains and always made sure there was a train on display at the hardware store.

Bob loved the outdoors, going camping, taking trips, and boating at the Lake of the Ozarks.  He especially enjoyed heading out on his 4-wheeler for his adventurous “road trips.”  He looked forward to family vacations at Disney World almost every year.  He also coached a Little League Baseball team in St. Charles in his younger years.  Bob was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorial contributions may be made in Bob’s name to American Diabetes Association or St. Peters Catholic Church Building Fund.

    Steve, I remember Bob coming into my store either with you or by himself and talking about his latest project, whether it was on one of the rental units or his own property, and always admired his enthusiasm and can do attitude. May he rest in peace.

    Ron and Steve, I am so sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. I really enjoyed working and talking with him over the years. I’ll never forget when I was new to St Charles and taking my family to the hardware store to check out the trains. Bob talked to us for quite awhile, especially my boys who had tons of questions about how he made all that. He was a great guy. Our prayers are with you.
