Mr. Robert “Bob” Brabbs, age 82, passed away on June 24, 2023. Robert was born in Oskaloosa, IA to David Brabbs and Sylvia Brabbs.
After graduating with his master’s degree, Robert began his long, successful career with US Gypsum. That career took him to Chicago where he lived many years. He enjoyed a rich social life of friends and colleagues. He was a very active member of the Naperville United Methodist Church, volunteering and singing in the choir.
While visiting his family in Ohio, Robert met the love of his life, Helen Maureen Medcalf. They married in 1986 and moved to Fairfield, Ohio where they lived for nearly 30 years. Robert was once again very active in his new church, Lindenwald Methodist. He gave his time and talents for church projects and again lent his beautiful voice to the choir. He and Maureen also traveled on mission trips to the American Southwest.
“Uncle Bob” was a regular at family gatherings and much loved by his 10 nieces and nephews and 10 great-nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed.
Robert is survived by Maureen Brabbs (Wife), Ann Brabbs (Sister-in-law), and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by David Brabbs (Father), Sylvia Brabbs (Mother), William Brabbs (Brother).

Donations in Bob’s honor can be made to Lindenwald Methodist.
“Dear Bob was such a good person through and through. A rare sort. I remember being part of your wedding as though it was yesterday … seeing how happy you both were! ( I still use the big bowl you gave me as a “thank you”) My heart aches for your loss. You two always seemed so full of joy with each other whenever I saw you together. Larry and I are here for you. Bob will be very much missed. Much love to you.”
“Sweet Aunt Maureen –I love you very much and I am so sorry for the loss of Uncle Bob. I know you both loved each other very much. May our prayers and your memories of Uncle Bob help fill the void he left behind.”
