Robert J. “Bobby” Binder, 52, passed away at his Gibsonburg home on February 23, 2018. He was born on Nov. 1, 1965 in Fremont to Joseph, III and Carolynne J. (McCollister) Binder.
Bobby worked at Luckey Farmers. In his younger years, he raced stock cars at Fremont Speedway. He was a selfless man, the kind that always made sure the people who were near him were taken care of, and he always had a grand plan. Recently, Bobby’s free time was spent restoring his bulldozer, working on and flying planes of all sizes, and helping his dad and aunt Sissy at the Skyway Flea Market. His friends and family will miss the many times spent around the campfire reminiscing, telling stories, and listening to music. More than anything, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren whether it was taking them to Bob Evans, setting up the pool for the summer or getting involved with derby cars.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, Jessica and Justin Binder both of Gibsonburg; grandchildren, Mason Esker, Mackenzie Esker & Gracie Churchill, and Lincoln Binder & Dahlia Haas; father, Joseph, III; siblings, Robin (Doug) Long, Amy (Shon) Lawless and Stephen Binder; and former wife, Laurie (Edward) Villarreal.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Carolynne.
