Robert W. Hess, 76, of Millmont PA was born on December 4, 1944, in Pittsburgh PA, son of the late Robert W. and late Rita E. Hess, nee Yochum.
He is survived by sisters Marilyn (Donald) Jenkins and Diane (Gerald) Tierno, his brother John (Lynn) Hess, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Early in life he studied for the priesthood, but discerned that his calling lay elsewhere. He became a Respiratory Therapist, taught students the art and science of respiratory therapy, and saved lives during a long career in various hospitals throughout New England, up-state New York, and Pennsylvania.
Upon retirement, he volunteered at the Union County West End Ambulance company. He remained a dedicated volunteer until his strength failed. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to the ambulance company at P.O. Box 51, Laurelton PA, 17835. Due to the epidemic, internment services will be restricted to family, with open memorial services to be scheduled during the summer.
He lived a worthy life of service to others in this Valley of Shadow until being peacefully called home on December 23, 2020.
Funeral arrangements are by Dominick T. Adamo Funerals, 16 Walnut Street, Mifflinburg PA.
