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.
