Robert W. Addoms, loved his family beyond measure, passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening, July 28, 2020 at Franciscan Manor. Born in New York, NY on October 13, 1939, Robert was the only child born to the late Robert W. and Genevieve Regina (Murphy) Addoms. Robert married the love of his life on August 16, 1958, Norma Gail (Hensley) Addoms who preceded him in death on February 25, 2017. They made their home in Moon Township in 1972 and added four children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. Robert retired in 2002 from U.S. Steel Air Craft Division where he had been a purchaser. He served his country in the U.S. Air Force from 1959-1963 and was a member of St. Margaret Mary Church. Robert’s hobby was “the family photographer” and chronicled all their family memories. Known for his “zingers” and wit, he had a sharp sense of humor! Beloved father of Patricia (William) Dempsey, Robert (Linda) Addoms, Cheryl (Clayton) Sovich and the late Michael Addoms; cherished grandfather of Jennifer Dempsey, Bryan (Sarah) Dempsey, Allie Addoms, Rachel (fiancé Andrew McCall) Addoms, Clayton (Jenna) Sovich and Christina (Kevin) Sullivan; and his precious great granddaughter Jessica Klotz. The family is planning a private service. Arrangements by Copeland’s. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Robert’s name.
