Robert “Bob” C. Whitworth

Millville – Robert “Bob” Charles Whitworth, age 68 of Millville, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family, early Friday morning, December 28, 2018.

Born and raised in Pennsauken to the late Charles and Virginia (Mingin) Whitworth, Bob graduated from Pennsauken High School, Class of 1969. He then went on to serve our country in the United States Navy, working in several different positions, lastly as a parachute rigger.

After completing his military service in the Navy during 1973, Bob settled in Millville and worked at Wheaton Glass Company and then Gerresheimer Glass Company as a machinist for over 40 years, and retired as one of their last Millville employees in 2017.

Bob had tremendous skills and an unstoppable work ethic. When he wasn’t working, he truly loved riding his Harley and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a great love for animals, caring for many cats and even training them over the years. He was certainly not known for his cooking skills, and enjoyed dining out, especially for breakfast with his best friend, Mike.

Bob will be sadly missed by his sister Carol Aristone and husband John of Merchantville; one niece Carol Ann (Kevin) of Maryland; one nephew John (Cindy) of Marlton; many cousins; and many friends, including Val, Luann, Mike, Eric, and Samantha.

Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Christy Funeral Home, Millville.

Memorial contributions in Bob’s memory may be made to the Cumberland County S.P.C.A., 1244 North Delsea Drive, Vineland, NJ 08360 or at the website: southjerseyregionalanimalshelter.org/donate/.
