Bob Bertoncin , Age: 75
January 03, 1943 -- May 09, 2018


Bob Bertoncin, 75, of Merriam Kansas, succumbed to cancer May 9th, 2018 with his family at his side. He is survived by his wife Pam of 53 years, and his children Jarrett and Jackie (Michael).  Bob attended Pius X grade school, DeLaSalle Academy High School and the University of Missouri-Columbia. In 1964 Bob joined the Navy Reserves and served as an airplane captain at NAS Olathe. Bob worked for TWA as an accountant then moved to Feld Truck Leasing before taking the lead at Fireside on the Plaza. Bob truly enjoyed working with customers at Fireside. He was a devoted father, softball coach, thundercloud watcher, Boy Scout leader, ski coach and secret cat lover. Pam was the love of his love and meant the world to Bob. His passions included keeping the greasy side down, throwing in a line, letting his creativity soar modeling tiny trains and after retirement, Christmas. He loved spending time with friends and family. A Celebration of Life will be 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Saturday, June 9, 2018 at Lake Quivira Country Club, 100 Crescent Blvd., Lake Quivira, Kansas 66217. In lieu of flowers Bob would appreciate donations to the American Cancer Society and Toys for Tots.
