Unexpected death of Husband/ Dad

On November 6th, 2017, Robert (Bob) Steele tragically passed away unexpectedly from natural causes at the age of 56.  His wife of 33 years, Lynne Steele, two daughters, Eliza Steele and Ashley Steele-Norris, and three grandchildren, Sam, Waylon and Laila, have survived him.  Bob was loved by all that knew him and loved his family immensely. 

Anyone who was a part of Lynne and Bob’s life, know how hard they worked and how they loved providing a space for people to gather and share their lives and home with.  It has been shattering for Lynne and the girls to know that she no longer will be sharing this life with her husband, but comforting to know that she will be moving to be with her daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren.

Bob and Lynne had been living in Florida for 9 years and had established a full life there.  Lynne, Eliza and family are currently in Florida working together to sort out accounts, legal issues, the household, pets, vehicles, and everything else that goes into losing a family provider as well as relocating in less than a month.  Lynne is focusing on applying for CNA jobs in Pennsylvania Hospitals and resuming her RN studies in addition to all this.  She plans to move by early December, since it is extremely difficult and painful to be in the house that she once shared with Bob and will also not be able to afford it on her own.  The move is already emotionally very stressful and with costs and debts adding up it is becoming even more so.

There are financial strains that have arisen from bills including: cremation, services, moving, legal fees, etc.  When adding everything up, it is shocking how much it is accumulating up to.  For anyone who has asked to help the family after Bob's passing, this is the best way to help relieve tension for everyone involved.

Thank you for spending the time to read this and please share pictures of Bob in the comments.

Thank you,

Bob’s daughter Eliza
