Life Sketch for Robert J. “Bob” Entz


Robert J. “Bob”  Entz, 72, left this life on Saturday, November 30, 2019 while being cared for by the Kansas Christian Home and Good Shepherd Hospice in Newton, Kansas.


Bob was born on January 20, 1947 in Concordia, Kansas and grew up in Newton.


He was preceded in death by his parents: Edward Walter Entz and Elizabeth Ann (Rush) Entz.


Bob is survived by his life partner of thirteen years, Lois Porter; sister: Eileen and Darrell Voth; brother: Mike and Susi Entz; granddaughter: Elizabeth Hull; and nieces: Amanda and Ryan Weishaar and Amy Entz.


Bob was a 1966 graduate of Newton High School.  Bob’s career included: truck driver, NAPA parts store owner, auto parts sales representative and property manager.


Bob won several battles with cancer during his lifetime but the last and final                    one was complicated by heart disease.  His family grieves for their loss but rejoices that the pain is gone and Bob is at peace with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Bob loved his life with Lois, their home and their feline fur-baby, Lacy. He was grateful for his wonderful family and friends.  He appreciated the love and support they showed him and Lois during these last few weeks.


The family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society,

  4. I met Bob in June 1975 while riding my motorcycle. We became best friends. I knew Bob 3 weeks and he loaned me his car for 3 weeks while I was working on my car and my bike was in the shop for maintenance. He never wavered and was more like a brother than just a friend. He was and will always be a brother and best friend. I’ll miss him and I am thankful to have had him for a friend.
