Robert J. Wahl, age 73, of Perrysburg, passed away peacefully with his son by his side on October 5, 2021 at The Lakes of Monclova. He was born August 18, 1948 in Toledo, OH to Robert and Mary (Meadows) Wahl. Robert was employed as a locomotive engineer for CSX for 35 years where he made lifelong friends and truly enjoyed his work.
Robert enjoyed the simple things in life and cherished moments with his family and countless friends. In his earlier years, he enjoyed sharing a round of golf with his many friends. He enjoyed his retirement years being able to go out often for meals at his favorite restaurants with his friends and family to catch up and do life together. Robert and his son, Chad, were inseparable and were truly best of friends. He was also extremely proud of his granddaughters, Haven and Avery, for the wonderful young women they have become and cherished all the time he had with them. Robert leaves a lasting legacy of commitment to family and friends that will stand the test of time.
Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Robert & Mary and reunited with the loves of his life: wife, Janet; and son, Chad. He is survived by his son, Brian (Breanna); brothers, Ernie (Linda) and Tim (Karen); sisters, Kathy (Manuel), Cheryl (Frank) and Sandy (Al); granddaughters, Haven and Avery; along with cousins, nieces and nephews too many to list.
The family would like to give special thanks to The Lakes of Monclova, Hospice of Northwest Ohio, UTMC doctors and staff and Scott Kazura who gave him the gift of extended life through kidney donation over 12 years ago.
