After a year-long illness, Robert Musleve passed away early Monday morning, June 3rd, at his home in Lake Mary, Florida. He was 93 years old and was happy to celebrate his birthday in April.
He moved to Lake Mary from Akron, Ohio after he retired from the United States Post Office in 1981. His survivors are proud of his service in WWII as a Sargent in the South Pacific Phillipines and then the occupation of Japan.
He was born and worked in Akron, Ohio ... the youngest of 11 children to Sam and Alice Musleve, who immigrated here from Galicia, Austria around 1902. Robert graduated from East High School in Akron. Robert was married to Marion Louise Blumenstine Musleve, who passed away in 1983. He remained a widower until he died.
He is survived by his two children, Claudia M. Collier of Pooler, Georgia and Scott A. Musleve of Akron, Ohio. He also leaves two grand-daughters, Anna M. Slaght and Holly M. Johnston, along with one great-grandchild.
While living at The Forest in Lake Mary he led many, many social outings and events such as parties, charity events, local theater support, and last but not least line dancing. He taught line dancing at The Forest as well as Lake Mary Senior Center for many years. Since his ashes will immediately be shipped to Akron to be interred alongside his wife, a local memorial will be held at The Forest on Sunday, July 7th at 1:00pm . All of his friends are invited, and his friends in Lake Mary will remember him as an important part of their community.

Hope you are resting in peace. Spent many vacations at your home and it was always a nice time, many memories were made! It was always fun heading over to the pool and later playing cards. I'll remember those times forever. You will be missed!

So sorry to hear about Bob's passing. I'm sure he was comforted by having his children by his side. I will always remember the Christmas holidays we spent in Florida with him. Rest in Peace. You will be missed by many.

I had the privilege of knowing this amazing man for the last 7 years. Even though Scott and I never married, I still considered him my "father-in-law". We have spent every Thanksgiving together with him and Don and Claudia and several vacations in between. He loved going to plays and shows, always including others that lived in the Forest. And he was a gamer. I am a gamer. We played games and he taught me new games. He was fun! Even toward the end when he was starting to lose ground, he still went to Bingo! He took us to Winter Park and we went on a pontoon ride. We visited the Tiffany Museum. He took us to Daytona for dinner. I could go on and on. His zest for life was contagious! I am very sad to lose him and I am very grateful for the wonderful memories I have of this man. You will be missed.

It was nice visiting your dad when we got together at Tybee Island and again at his home with my husband, a distant relative. I remember him as an energetic, very sharp gentleman. I’m glad I had the opportunity to know him. I know he will be missed.
