Robert Gerald Hummer Sr.

February 25, 1925January 1, 2019

Robert G. Hummer, Sr., our beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather passed away peacefully on January 1, 2019 at the age of 93. He was predeceased by his wife, Ines, in 2015. He was born at home on February 25, 1925 in Detroit and was a proud WWII Navy Vet serving from 1943-46. He retired from the City of Detroit Public Lighting Commission after 30 years of service. Like most of his peers, he never talked about the war, nor bragged of his accomplishments. His credo was simple-do your duty! Seeking praise for doing what was expected was met by “what do you want, a medal!” He raised 4 children and worked two jobs to send them to Catholic schools and to take an annual summer vacations up north. He is survived by his children-Harry, Robert, Karen (Keith), Sharon; grandchildren-April, Katelyn, Alex, Krissy; great-grandchildren-Robert, Audrey, and Michael! Rest in peace for a life well lived! There will be no memorial service per his wishes.
