Car dealer, councilman served church, community

---- — Robert A. “Bob” Kaltenbaugh of Sandy Lake passed away unexpectedly at 7:35 p.m. Monday (10-7-13) in UPMC Horizon, Greenville. He was 90.

Born Sept. 17, 1923, in Millcreek Township, Mr. Kalten-baugh was a son of Albert J. and Lois G. Andrews Kalten-baugh.

He was a 1940 graduate of the former Sandy Lake High School.

Mr. Kaltenbaugh was an honorably discharged Army World War II veteran.

After returning from the war, he began working at Walker Chevrolet of Sandy Lake, which he would eventually own and operate with his brother, Chuck. It is now owned and operated by Bob Kaltenbaugh, Bob’s son.

Mr. Kaltenbaugh was a longtime active member of Sandy Lake Wesleyan Church, where he was instrumental in many happenings at the church including serving on the board of directors, church treasurer and Sunday school superintendent. At a regional level, he served 40 years as district board member and district treasurer.

Bob was very active and community-oriented. He served 25 years on the Houghton College board of directors; was past president and a Paul Harris Fellow of the Sandy Lake Rotary Club; an active member of the Stoneboro Lions Club; and served on Sandy Lake Borough Council, many years as president. For 40 years, he served on the board of Mercer County State Bank, during which time he was board chairman for many years.

Bob loved the outdoors and loved to work. He enjoyed hunting, golfing and cutting wood. With his wife, Jean, he loved to travel.

Most of all, Bob was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather. He will be sadly missed.

His wife, the former Jean L. Walker, whom he married June 27, 1946, survives at home.

Also surviving are: a daughter, Susan J. Auerbach and her husband Gary; two sons, Robert W. Kaltenbaugh and his wife Cathy; and Ray J.
