Robert (Bob) Lee Fleming, 90, went to be with his Lord and Saviour peacefully on Monday, July, 30, 2018.  He was born in Paoli, Indiana on August 22, 1927 to the late Charles and Agnes (Hammond) Fleming.

He married the love of his life, Margaret Jo Elmore, on his twenty-first birthday.  They moved to Winchester in 1948.  Bob worked at Anchor Hocking and proudly served his country in the Army during the Korean War from 1952-1954.  He was a mechanic at DX gas station, which later became Sunoco.  He later became co-owner with John Grubbs at Westside Service as a mechanic.

He was a member of the American Legion.  Bob enjoyed being outdoors, tinkering with cars, reading the newspaper, a devoted Pacers fan, and spending time with his family.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 69 years, Margaret Jo; son Robert Scott Fleming (Joyce); daughter, Suzanne Loffer (Mike); two step granddaughters, Carly Muzzy, Emily Harbaugh (Robert); three granddaughters, Lindsey Knust (Scott), Katie Flowers (Shawn), and Ashley Loffer; five great grandchildren, Karter, Karson, Kenna, and Kessa Knust, and Declan Scott Harbaugh; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his mother and father, he was preceded in death by four sisters and a brother.

A Celebration of Bob’s life will be at 1:00 p.m., on Friday, August 3, 2018 at the Walker Funeral Home in Winchester, with Bob’s nephew, David Henderson officiating.  Burial will follow with Military Services at Fountain Park Cemetery in Winchester.

A very pleasant gentleman dedicated to his family. Hard and productive work, within the framework of his life, was his never-ending goal. May GOD IN HEAVEN provide the necessary comfort to Bob's surviving family members.
