John "Bob" Robert Endris

January 21, 1929October 29, 2020

John Robert “Bob” Endris, 91, of New Albany passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 29, 2020, at Providence Retirement Home while in the care of Hosparus Health Southern Indiana.

A lifelong native of New Albany, Bob served in the United States Navy before returning home and meeting his beloved wife, Jo Ann. Bob and Jo were married for nearly 60 years before her passing in 2017. He retired from Sonoco’s New Albany plant in 1990 where he proudly worked as a Quality Supervisor. In retirement, Bob most enjoyed spending time with his family, crafting model airplanes, attending monthly breakfasts with fellow Sonoco retirees, and listening to the music of Frank Sinatra.

He is survived by his daughter, Laura Maraman (Mark) of New Albany; grandsons, Brent and Nicholas Maraman (Jason Mudd) of Louisville; great-granddogs, Henry and Booker; brother-in-law, Fred Frederick of Corydon; many nieces and nephews; and his companion, Bonnie Denison.

It was his wish to be cremated. Kraft Funeral Service has been entrusted with his care. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a memorial service will be held at a future date.

The family requests expressions of sympathy go to Central Christian Church, 1315 E. Spring Street, New Albany, IN 47150; or Kentucky Humane Society, 1000 Lyndon Lane, Suite B, Louisville, KY 40222.

My deepest condolences.

Robert was a fine guy who cared for our customer with honesty and integrity always. He was a generous teacher and coach to me and many others in his decades of service.

I was blessed to enjoy Robert and Jo’s support and fellowship during and after his work career. After hours, they were such fun!

They were so proud of you and the rest of the family.
I hope your warm memories will comfort you as time passes.

My best,
Nancy Roberts

I so enjoyed working with Bob from the otherside of the wall(Pillsbury Quality). He was such a nice gentle man who shared his knowledge of Pillsbury cans. Over the years we continued to catch up at Walgreens and Kroger .

Dear Laura Lee & family,

Bob & Jo both loved you & your family so much; they always spoke of you all, including the grand-dogs, with extreme love & adoration.

You, & all of us neighbors, were blessed to have them in our lives for so long.

No matter what was going on, we could always count on them to be there & always available to chat. Jo usually was at the kitchen table in the middle of a meal prep or about to bake her famous thumbprint cookies, & Bob would quietly do the dishes or work in the yard.

Thanks for sharing them with us all!

It makes me happy knowing they are together once again. Can't you hear Jo say, "'re finally here!"

Laura Lee, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. He was always so nice to me. I loved seeing him when he would come to my work place. I visited him back in the spring because I had lost your phone number. He was busy doing laundry. I'm so glad to have memories of both your mom and dad.
Love, Jenny

I have known Jo, Bob & Laura since the mid 60's. Bob was a good man, a friendly man, a family man, and a man of faith. He always appreciated a good joke, and the only time I saw him angry was when Monte Beard did a massive burn out, in front of Bobs house, in his '69 Road Runner. Bob ran out into the street shaking his fist! I remember riding to Corydon, in the back seat of the old Volkswagen Beatle. The kids had to ride in the back, so Lady( family dog) could sit in the front. Jo and Bob always treated us neighborhood kids like family, and I have never forgotten that. I also not forgotten how the whole family drove to Bloomington to attend my wedding. Bob, Rest In Peace, until we meet again.
