Robert Earl Linder, 68, of Greenwood went home to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on August 31, 2012. He was born on May 27th, 1944, in Anderson, IN, a son of the late Ernest and Helen (Gladden) Linder.
He is survived by his loving children: Brian (Laura) Linder, Christie Gerrior, Kim Linder, and Jenny Linder. His grandchildren: Kyle and Kara Linder, and Vinnie and Ava Gerrior.
Robert, or as many people knew him as Bob, will be remembered as a loving and devoted father to his four children. He was the life of a conversation and never met a stranger. He graduated from Whiteland High School in 1962. He then proudly served our country in the United States Army for 6 years. Bob dedicated much time and hard work to General Motors-Allison Transmission for over 30 years and made many lifelong friends along the way. He loved to be outdoors, often walking 10 miles a day, and kept his lawn immaculate. He was also an avid IU basketball fan, never missing a game and attended many of them with his children. Bob touched many lives and will always be remembered as having the best sense of humor to overcome anything.
A service will be held at Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory, Greenwood Chapel, 481 W. Main Street, Greenwood at 10 AM Wednesday with visiting hours at the funeral home Tuesday from 4-8 PM.
Burial will be at East Maplewood Cemetery in Anderson, Indiana.
The four children would like to express our deepest appreciation for the doctors, nurses, and staff of Community Hospital South-Intensive Care Unit in the amazing and beautiful compassion they exhibited towards our family in this time.
