Obituary for Robert F. O'Neill

Robert F. O’Neill
Robert F. (Bob) O’Neill of Springfield, PA died peacefully at his home on February 1, 2019 at the age of 85.
Bob is survived by his wife of 54 years Dolores (nee Duda), 2 sons, Robert F. Jr. (Nona Chiang) and Brian (Amy), 2 step-children, David Fenza and Christine Hill (nee Fenza), two grandchildren, Frankie and Eddie, and 6 siblings, Kathleen Bakos, Rita Rocchi, Phillip, Chris, Kevin, and Michael.
It is with broken hearts that we, the family, share this sad news. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Coming from a family with 12 children, Bob understood what it meant to care for loved ones which he demonstrated everyday throughout his life. His loving spirit, keen sense of humor and influence will live on in everyone who knew him.
Bob was originally from Philadelphia and went to LaSalle High School. He served in the U.S Army and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania where he earned a degree in Journalism. He had a long career in journalism starting with several local newspapers, the Bulletin, a stint in public relations and later the Philadelphia Inquirer. He was a member of the Delaware County Historical Society and many of his pieces focused on local history. In addition to being an incredible storyteller, he was an accomplished bowler, avid golfer, and golf club connoisseur. He took pride in being a left-hander and advocated for southpaws everywhere.
