Obituary & Services
Of Munhall, died August 22, 2019 of natural causes, age 67. A two-time cancer survivor, Robert will be remembered for his charisma, fighting spirit and willingness to help others suffering the same fate. A former painter and carpenter whose work graces our local area, he loved animals – especially dogs and cats – music, classic cars and was an avid baseball and football fan. He played in local softball leagues until his mid 40's. He was also known for his impeccable sense of style, and enjoyed “dressing to the nines,” especially in his youth.
He was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, where he sponsored others who were struggling with addictions. His AA and NA family were very important to him and his many friends were an instrumental part of his life.
He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Ann Cornelius Simcic; sisters Victoria Madero Arnold and Marleen Simcic; niece Angela (Christopher) Petro; nephew John (Isabelle) Malta; great-nephew Edison Malta; step-father Edward Madero; mother-in-law Natalie Cornelius; and brother-in-laws Bob Arnold, Victor Cornelius and Edgar Cornelius Jr.; also survived by his four beloved cats, Pouncey, Woodley, Ziggy and Sidney “Itski”.
Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Lois Madero and Robert Simcic, grandparents Agnes and John Galisin and his father-in-law, Edgar Cornelius
