Robert Walter Croyle

July 3, 1947 ~ November 25, 2020 (age 73)


Robert Walter Croyle, 74, of Adrian went to be with Jesus on Wednesday November 25, 2020. Bob went home where Grandma & Pap were waiting for him.

He was born on July 3, 1947 in Kittanning to the late Rev. Robert & Phyllis (Dunmire) Croyle.

He was a former typesetter for the Leadertimes and was also self employed.

He was a member of Family Life Church and just recently began attending Christians With A Vision.

He lived a long and happy life. He loved playing his accordion and singing with his granddaughter Laylah and his grandson Christopher. Bob sang and played at numerous funerals throughout the years for family and friends. He also recently began playing the drums and was looking forward to performing with them.

If you visited carnivals or festivals in western PA you may have tasted one of his blueberry funnel cakes. Bob had a 1947 Plymouth coupe that his son Ed had restored much to his enjoyment. Being an avid hunter, he kept insisting he was going deer hunting on the 28th at his nephew John’s with Christopher, Matthew, Ken and his good friend Dr. Perry Younger.
