Robert W. Pope, 84, of Seville and formerly of Creston, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, Nov. 6, 2020 after a period of declining health.
Bob was the eighth child born to Leonard and Helen (Darr) Pope on Oct. 9, 1936 in Cleveland. He married the former Shirley M. Brown on May 28, 1957 and she survives. He had made his home in the Creston/Burbank area most of his life and retired from Modern Tool and Die in Cleveland in 2001 after 36 years of service. Bob was an avid golfer and bowler having been on many industrial leagues.
