He was the beloved husband of Mary Ann (Keller) Greve who passed away just weeks ago. They are now together and will be celebrating 58 years of marriage on August 1, 2017. Bob was born June 10, 1935 in Lakewood, Ohio and was the son of Anna (Scerba) and Edward Greve.

He is survived by his four children- Denise Simoneau and her husband Daryl of Milford MA, Cheryl Fonder and her husband Stan of Pottstown, PA, Robert W. Greve Jr. and his wife Diane of Harleysville, PA and Alan Greve and his wife Aimee of Maple Glen, PA.

Bob proudly served Our Country in the US Air Force. He started his career at the Remington Rand Co. in Cleveland, Ohio and went on to work at Westcode Corp. in Frazer, PA. He was a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus and a long-time member of St. Titus where he was active in many parish functions. He assisted his wife in the MS Hope Club of Montgomery County and volunteered for the Greater Delaware Valley Section of the National MS Society for many years. He cared for Mary Ann and they had an abiding love for one another. Bob was very talented and taught his children many mechanical skills. Most of all, he loved his family.

The family would like to thank the staff at ETG for the love, care and compassion that they have provided to Bob and Mary Ann and to all of us.
