Obituary for Robert Dean "Bob" Blacker

It is with great sadness that the family of Bob Blacker announce that he passed away peacefully on September 5, 2018 at the age of 80. Bob graduated from Crawfordsville High School where his claim to fame was winning the 1956 Indiana State Wresting Champion. After attending Wabash and Purdue University, Bob dedicated three and half decades at IBM (1959-1993) where he was so proud to be an employee combining his love of people and technology.

Bob will be forever remembered for his quick humor, love of rock ‘n roll, his guitar tributes to Elvis and Chuck Berry, boating adventures, and always having the right gadget or solution for any situation.

Bob is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Nellie Blacker and brother, William Blacker. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Marilyn, sons; Brandon (Stine), Christopher (Kristen); daughters: Lisa Paustis (Dan), Renee Nord (Ken) and grandchildren: Brianna Johnson, Jennifer Paustis, Bryce Paustis, Emma Blacker, Liam Blacker, Grace Nord, Jack Blacker, Max Blacker and 5 great grandchildren.

He was loved by all and will be greatly missed by all. Bob never met a stranger that didn’t become a friend for at least a moment. We are honoring Bob’s wishes for no service.
