Robert Emmett Green

On March 12th, 2022 Robert “Bob” Emmett Green, loving husband and brother, passed away at the age of 68.

Bob’s early years were spent on a dairy farm that his parents managed, with the help of many extended family members, until he was seven years old.  The family moved to Lansdowne, PA where Bob attended Ardmore Avenue Elementary and Lansdowne-Aldan High Schools. He worshipped at St Paul’s Lutheran Church. He sang in the church choir and with the DelChordians, barbershop harmony chorus, where he served as a board member. He cherished his memories of Lansdowne and his friends and family from his childhood.

Bob spent the next chapter of his life living in Palmyra and Hershey, PA with his wife Kathleen “Kate”. They have been together for 43 years. He was involved with the Palmyra recreation department and coached youth soccer. He was a member of the Hummelstown Historical Society and enjoyed exploring family histories and genealogy. Professionally, Bob worked in service technician roles building and maintaining church pipe organs, planetariums throughout the U.S. and durable medical equipment.  Bob enjoyed listening to music with high quality audio equipment. He appreciated great literature and trivia along with philosophical conversations. He was a collector of unique antiques and enjoyed participating at regional flea markets.  Bob was known for the remarkable rich tone of his voice and was appreciated for his gregarious and kind engagement with everyone he encountered.

He was preceded in death by his father, Emmett, and his mother Loretta. He is survived by his wife Kathleen, his brother David (wife Ann and son Andrew), brother-in-law John Dodge, sister-in-law Diane Sattazahn (and son Samuel) and sister-in-law Joan Domanski and family.

No formal funeral events are planned.  Donations, in his memory, may be made to your local humane society or your charity of choice.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you Kate and also his brother and family I’ve known Bob for fifty years he was a close friend of my ex husband mickey kacala who passed 8 years ago from cancer now there up there in heaven talking about the good old days may he rest in peace 🕊️

  • Bob and l grew up together in Lansdowne. Although many years had passed since then. l feel fortunate we reconnected in recent months and spoke about our younger days quite often.

    Bob would always tell me before we ended our conversations how happy he was we stayed in touch
    . I remember the joy we shared when he called to tell me he was cancer free. Such a great day! Soon after, l was diagnosed with cancer. When l was anxious about starting chemo. Bob was on the phone offering the support only Bob knew how to give. Soon after, Bob called me and told me the very sad news from his bone marrow results. Going from joyful news, to such sad news is such a shock to the system. We both carried on with the conversation, it was a great conversation between two old friends. A few days later l called Bob and left a voicemail. A few hours later Kate called to say Bob wasn’t doing well but he wanted to make sure she called Fuzzy back. Thank you for taking the time to call me Kate. That call has allowed me to grieve an old friend with a final goodbye.

    Peace and condolences,

  • I’m so sorry to hear this news but relieved that Bob is no longer in pain. In grade school we were crossing Safeties for Ardmore Avenue Elementary School. Bob’s corner was one up from mine. At the end of the shift we called out “all clear”.

    We went to Lansdowne Aldan together. You could count on Bob to have something witty or humorous to say. In the summers, the Ardmore Boys raised proper hell with Bob being one of the leaders. We never hurt anyone, just had our brand of fun.

    More than a few years back after school and careers, the Ardmore Boys had our little reunion. I never saw Bob after that but kept up occasionally with emails.

    I had high hopes that he would beat all this and at one point thought he had.

    My condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to Bob’s family and friends. Our little circle just got smaller.
