Robert "Bob" Schafer Fawcett, age 78, of DeWitt, passed away peacefully to be with the Lord following a short non-covid related illness on November 14, 2020 surrounded by his wife and daughters.

Bob was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather. Surviving are his loving wife of 55 years, Laura; his daughters, Karra (Tom) Zerona of White Lake and Andrea (Nathan) Lindemeyer of DeWitt; grandsons, Luke and Alec Zerona; and sister-in-law, Audrey (Frank) Davis of Athens, TN and their family. He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Nola Fawcett; and brother, James.

Bob was born on August 4, 1942 in Flint and grew up in Mt. Morris. He attended Mt. Morris High School, Flint Junior College, Lansing Business University and Michigan State University. He worked for Beurmann-Marshall as an account supervisor for several years and retired from ICS (Innovative Computer Services) as Senior Account Manager.

Bob was a member of the Waverly Jaycees, DeWitt Lions Club, American Legion Post 0076 in Ludington, Lincoln Hills Golf Club, Ludington Boat Club, and Grace United Methodist Church where he attended for 50 years and served in many capacities. He also attended United Methodist Church of Ludington. He enjoyed golfing, hunting, fishing, boating, traveling and MSU sports. Bob especially enjoyed spending summers in Ludington with family and friends. His favorite service project was the annual Ludington Boat Club Fish Fry/Boil to support Hospice of Michigan.

Bob's warm smile, sense of humor and personality will be missed by his family and many friends. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. His final resting place will be at Lakeview Cemetery in Ludington. Memorial contributions may be made to Grace United Methodist Church in Lansing, Homes for our Troops (www.hfotusa.org) or Hospice of Michigan (www.hom.org).

I picture Laura and Bob in their usual place at Ludington UMC as I could see them from the choir loft. Many thoughts and prayers go out to Laura, as you remember Bob fondly . Praying for God's presence with you to comfort and sustain you.

Laura and Family:

Bob and I, along with other friends, spent many Friday dinners at various restaurants talking about hunting, sports and family. He was a joy to converse with and listen to his experiences. He will really be missed.

God's blessings to you and your family, Rudy.

Dear Laura,
I know it’s been decades since we last saw one another, but some souls I just never forget. I am saddened to read Bob’s obituary today and extend my deepest sympathy to you, Kara, Andrea and their family. I remember how often you spoke of Bob and the girls when we worked together; just sharing life. We sure did love to talk! They were all such a big part of your life then and I’m sure an even bigger part now. Being retired myself, my heart aches that you and Bob didn’t have more years in retirement together, but oh, so many years in marriage which you both are to be congratulated for. You both worked so hard in order to have a happy and long life together. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your loved one, Bob, Dad, and Grandpa.
Warm regards

Bob and I were very good friends at pulmonary rehab and enjoyed many laughs together. We shared a love for the Spartans, our cottages, and talked a lot about family, hunting and health. He had a great sense of humor and could always make people feel better just by talking to him. He will be greatly missed.
