Robert E. Wedemeyer


Robert “Bob” Wedemeyer, age 82, of Leland, NC, passed away at his home with his family by his side on Saturday, January 16, 2021.

He was born in Baltimore City, MD, on June 9, 1938, the son of Ella Naomi Wedemeyer and Norman August Wedemeyer. He is preceded in death by brothers, William and Norman Wedemeyer.

Bob graduated from Southern High School in Baltimore City and continued with his education at Catonsville Community College. Bob served his country as a young man in the Army until his honorable discharge. His career followed a few paths beginning with the Baltimore City Police Department andending as an Infrastructure Supervisor with Anne Arundel County. His greatest accomplishment was that of a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His family always came first. His friends were a close second as he was someone who never met a stranger.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Geraldine (Gerry) Wedemeyer, daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Tom Flatley, son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Michele Wedemeyer, grandchildren Becky and her husband Jason Alberti, Chris Flatley, Zach Wedemeyer, and Kyle Wedemeyer; great-grandchildren Jackson and Raelynn Alberti; siblings George Wedemeyer and “sister” Mary Jo Stephens. He was loved by all and willleave a void in the lives of those who knew and loved him.

Services will be determined at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made to Lower Cape Fear Life Care, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401, in memory of Bob would be greatly appreciated.

    Mark so sorry for you and your families loss. I remember talking to you in the office at my desk about our families and how we had a lot of similarities. I can truly now say that I know how you are feeling and what you are going through, my father also passed away on January 16 in Florida so the similarities continue. Best prayers and wishes to you and your family. Bryan

    Dear Gerry, Karen, and Mark - I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. Bob always had a smile and twinkle in his eye. I will remember Mr. Bob for his generosity and kindness. From first grade on while growing up, your family felt like an extension of my own. When Bob saw my mother taking me to school on the back of a bike, he offered to pick me up on his way to work and deliver me to St. Jane’s along with Karen. He was always reaching out to help others. His memory will forever be in my heart. Sending my deepest sympathy to your family.

    To the Wedemeyer Family Our thoughts and prayers are with you .Bob was a great guy. Always pleasant to be around. Loved to tease and had a great smile. He also liked to shop. When Mark and Michele were getting married he would buy many things for them. Oh he just happened to “find”it for them. Very generous. He will be missed

    Mark and family. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. When I stopped by your office yesterday I was informed of your Dad's passing. Although I never met your Dad, it is obvious that he did a great job raising you. May the Lord look down upon you and all your family members and pour out His grace to assist you during this time of great loss. My family's prayers and thoughts are with you.
