In Memory

Robert A. Roman

Robert A. Roman


Robert Roman, 65, of Hazle Twp. passed away Dec. 18, 2020.

Bob was born and raised in Hazleton and was predeceased by his parents, Leona and Dominic Roman.

Bob, a talented artist, began drawing and painting in elementary school and was known as the Hazleton High School cartoonist. A master watercolorist and acrylic painter, Bob's subjects included landscapes, still life and nudes. His paintings were sold in various galleries including the New Arts Program, Kutztown, and the Hazleton Art League.

Bob studied art at Kutztown University, where he was employed in the maintenance department. Having training in HVAC, electric and carpentry, Bob worked for the university for many years. Previously, Bob worked in the cheese business.

Bob's creativity extended to his talent as a teacher, painting tutor and a cook. His generosity was expressed through cooking and sharing delicious, homemade food. Bob was well known for his excellent tomato sauce and piztas. Bob's humor, stories, adoring laugh, and even his political banter will be missed. This beautiful soul left the planet too soon.

Bob is survived by his goddaughter, Sunny Rose Dale Litschauer, and her parents, Rose and Robert Litschauer.

A burial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Calvary Cemetery, Drums.

Joseph A. Moran Funeral Home, 229 W. 12th St., Hazleton, is in charge of the arrangements.

I will always remember Bob as a quiet, thoughtful extremely talented artist. If you recall, Bob created the intricate drawings on the inside cover of our Janus/yearbook. RIP dear friend!

As I read about Bob's passing a few memories came across my still active brain cells. I remember him at Grebey Jr. High as he presented a short animation done on multiple pieces of paper creating an action that was quite creative and appropriate for the type of person Bob was. I also remember him inviting me to visit him at his home, I believe in Hazle Twp where I expected him to show me around his parents house but instead when I got there he was living in a small travel trailer in his parent's driveway, all hooked up to their electricity and water. He invited me in an we shared some wine and of course the place was filled with his artwork. What a nice memory of a short lived friendship that I hope will be rekindled in the kingdom of GOD. God bless your soul Bob!
