Robert D. Mosch , 86, of Wilmington, Delaware peacefully passed away with family at his side on Monday, February 4, 2019.

Bob was born in Ossining, New York on September 11, 1932, son of the late Glenn and Ervene (Smith) Mosch.  A 1952 graduate of Latin American Institute in New York City,  he proudly served our country during the Korean War as a member of the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division, having been stationed in Korea.  Upon his honorable discharge from military service, Bob began his career in railroading and held marketing department positions with New York Central, Penn Central and Conrail in both New York City and Philadelphia.  He retired from Conrail as an Assistant Vice President for Marketing. 

Bob was a passionate baseball fan and enjoyed playing at various levels.  He was an avid Brooklyn Dodgers fan until their move to Los Angeles, at which time he became an ardent New York Mets fan.  Although he loved all aspects of baseball, his true love and most beloved hobby was his family.  A selfless person, Bob would do anything to help someone in need.

Bob himself wrote: “I have been blessed with a wonderful family, which is a tremendous legacy to leave behind.  You all know how I loved sports and active things of that nature, but if one were to ask me what my real hobby was, I would truly say my family.  I truly love you all deeply.”

Bob will be dearly missed by his wife of 64 years, Renee Godina Mosch; his children, Robert D. Mosch Jr.  and wife, Debbie, Alison Gooding and husband, Jeff.  He was blessed with six grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.  His grandchildren are Stacie Pearman (Mike), Jamie Peters (Mike Healy), Tracee Sherlock (Chris), Andrew Mosch (Courtney), Lindsay Peters, Danielle Mosch Martinez (Erick); his great grandchildren are Brian, Daniel, Anthony, Liam, Caiden, Mackenzie, Harper, Brynn and Mason.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek on Monday, February 11 from 4:30-6:00PM, immediately followed by a service in celebration of Bob’s life.  Interment will be held privately in the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
