Robert Bob Eugene Braden, 74, passed away peacefully, Wednesday October 18, 2017 with his family surrounding him.
Bob was born in Conneaut, Ohio on June 19, 1943, the son of Clarence and Lena (Whiting) Braden.
He graduated from Rowe High School, and shortly after married his wife Barbara (Hartwell) Braden. Together Bob and Barb were able to turn their family of two into a family of eight, and spend over 55 wonderful years together.
He retired from ESAB, where he worked as a wire coiler.
Bobs time was always spent doing the things he loved with the ones he loved. He enjoyed listening to old country music, hunting, fishing, and grilling at family barbeques
He was his happiest during the Christmas season. When his kids were young he would blare the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer record and blind them with the light of the old camcorder.
Bob created many memories with his family and friends, and for that he will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara Braden; sons, Steve (Kim) Braden, Daryl Braden, and Scott (Siobhon) Braden; daughters, Tammy (Bart) Tuttle, Cindy (Ray) Braden, and Sarah (Sam) McAdoo; sister, Goldie (Richard) Renn; 17 grandchildren; and 29 great-grandchildren.
