Robert Lee Munson, 88 years young of Toledo, OH, died Monday, December 15, 2014, peacefully in his sleep at home. Bob was born on January 1, 1926, to Clarence and Gladys Munson.
Bob served in the US Navy from 1944 to 1946 aboard the USS Lexington earning many awards and medals. In 1947 he married Betty Gugger and they had two daughters.
Most of Bob’s life he drove semi-truck for A&P Tea Company until they closed the warehouse in Toledo.  Then he drove for Central Transport.  After leaving that job, he went to work for Purolator Courier retiring from that company.
Bob was a very simple man that didn’t want attention focused on himself.  He wanted to help everybody but didn’t want anyone to help him.  He would give you the shirt off his back and his very last dollar.  He was the BEST dad and grandpa any kids could ask for!
Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Betty, his parents Clarence and Gladys, his step-mother, Ardelle and his brother Darrel.  
He will be greatly missed by his daughters Linda (Bill) Rohr, Diana Duvall and his brother Dick (Betty) Munson.  Missing their grandpa will be Russ (Teresa), Keith (Kelli), Tim (Anna), Bob (Lindsay) and Tracy (Chad) and great grandkids, Dalton, Bailey, Sydney, Trystan, Trenton, Ashlyn, Bri, Tyler, Logan, Lucas, Lathan, Dixie, Tyra, Liv, Eli, Gwenyth, Delaney and Violet.
A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at 11:30am at St. Clement Church, 3030 Tremainsville Road.  Interment will be private.
If you would like to make a memorial contribution in Bob’s memory, you may donate to St. Clement Church or a charity of your choice.
Dad, Grandpa….we will always love you and you will always be with us.  We now have two “Special Guardian Angels” to watch over all of us.  No more pain….no more worries, Dad!  Rest in peace….We’ve got it from here!

Bob/Dad, You are already missed. As a Father-In-Law/Mentor, I rank you at the top of the Class. And I mean "Class." No matter what the circumstances, I never saw you lose your (famous temper), ah – err, Composure, and Lord knows – I tested it, more than once. You always made me feel that we had a special friendship, right up to our last cups of BK Java, this past summer.
Thanks for all the sacrifices you have made over the years for all of us, & for me. Back in the day when you humored me at the tennis courts, and a few Motorcycle/sidecar rides, helping me out with jobs when I was shorthanded, a few around the house projects, that I don’t think you were really that enthusiastic about. We teamed up to help with some, mid-winter, mid MI, midnight moves, that you made me feel, that even that much snow was just a test, that we would get through. Somehow you made the Blizzard of ’76 in mid MI. seem like an extension of Thanksgiving, that we made it home - with only minor difficulties.
These and many more, wonderful memories, too numerous to mention, are why I say here, now, and Again, Thanks Bob, You were the Best, in My Book! Rest now in the Lords Peace! See you on the other side.
