Robert “Bob” G. Mayle, 80, of Chesterhill, passed away on Friday, April 3, 2020.

He was born on April 3, 1940, in Amesville, to the late Luther Mayle and Erma Crippen Mayle.

He married Gloria Lee Croston on April 26, 1961. Bob was a hard working laborer and retired from the Laborers Local No. 639, in Marietta, in 1997. He was proud of his 50-year membership. He coached many men, women and children in softball and baseball for many years. He loved to play horseshoes and also liked to deer hunt with his son, brothers and buddies. In the summer, you could always find him working in his garden or mowing the lawn, probably while singing “Running Bear.” He enjoyed cookouts and holidays surrounded by his family. He was proud of all his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He never met a stranger and helped anyone, friends and family alike.

He was preceded in death by brothers, Russell, Dan, David, and Marion; and a sister, Delores Mayle.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Gloria; children, Barbara, Tonya, Rex, and Ginger Mayle; special niece, Lisa Maria Mayle; grandchildren, Brittany, Andrew, Kelsey, and Keliegh Mayle and Lynsey Norris; great-grandchildren, Raq and Raegan Ponchak, Owen, Olivia and Addison Norris and Rosalind Jean Mayle; brothers, James (Jim) and John (Jock) Mayle; sisters, Shirley Carnes, Karen Robinson and Sharon Mayle-Evans; a whole host of nieces and nephews; and special pets, Honey and Spike.
