Bob was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Maryann Shubbuck; brother, Phillip R. Rozalski; and sister-in-law, Edith Rozalski.

Funeral Services will be held 11 a.m., on Friday, Feb. 8th, at the Conneaut Church of God, 5327 Center Road (Route 7), Conneaut, with Pastor Carson Robson officiating. Burial will follow at Kelloggsville Cemetery.

Calling Hours will be held on Thursday, Feb. 7th, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the THOMPSON-SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 345 Main St., Conneaut and on Friday from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Church.

Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made in his name to the family.
