    Flogaus, Robert Charles (Bob) of Phoenixville & Wayne Pennsylvania,
    passed away on May 15th 2012, with his wife and sons by his side.
    Born, Lansing Michigan, 1939. Son of Howard Andrew Flogaus Sr. and Helen Stephan Flogaus. Bob was Predeceased by brothers Howard A. Flogaus Jr. (Jake) and William Stephan Flogaus
    (Bill). Beloved husband of 44 years to Lee (nee Nabors), adored father
    of David A. Flogaus (Annie) and W. Randall Flogaus (Diane) and Pop-Pop
    of cherished grandchildren Danny, Caroline and Emily.

    Bob grew up in Wallingford, PA and graduated from Nether Providence
    (Strath Haven) High School and Drexel University with a B.S. in
    Mechanical Engineering. The Drexel co-op program paved the way to 48
    years of employment at Schramm Inc. in West Chester, where he rose to
    the title of Chief Engineer of Hydraulics. Bob was a 37-year member of
    the Society of Automotive Engineers

    Throughout his life he was an active car enthusiast and drag racer
    throughout the Delaware Valley. He enjoyed muscle cars in the 60’s,
    Mustangs and Buicks in the 80’s and 90’s, and more recently his prized
    Corvettes. He was also member of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the
    BMW Car Club of America, held in high esteem. Friends from automotive
    pursuits gladly enabled a wonderful extended adolescence. A private
    celebration of Bob’s life is planned for June 30th 2012.

    Arrangements were facilitated by The Hicks Homes for Funerals, PA of
    Elkton, Maryland. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Bob’s name to Tire
    Rack Street Survival (a respected National teen driver safety training
    program) at 201-A Pelham-Davis Circle, Greenville, SC 29615 (864) 329

    Wow. My deepest condolences and sympathies. I don't know you and didn't know your Dad but I do know what you're going through...mine passed away last February. He'll remain with you and continue to guide you along although he's not there with you physically.

    Take care...
