Obituary


SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP- Robert "Bob" A. Short, 88, passed away November 7, 2021, in Bradenton, Florida following a very brief illness.
He was born in Oberlin, Ohio on February 28, 1933, the son of Herman and Ruth (Dellinger) Short.
Bob was a 1951 graduate of Ashtabula High School and went on to receive his degree from Miami University (OH). Bob proudly served his country in the U.S. Army.
On June 23, 1956, he married Doris McBride and together the couple enjoyed 63 years of marriage until she passed away on April 1, 2019.
He worked for Sunshine Biscuit Company (Nabisco) for many years until he started his 22-year career at Harbor High School where he taught physical education and drivers' education. Bob was also a long-time basketball and baseball coach at Harbor High School; many of his closest friends were his fellow teachers and coaches. He enjoyed many things in life; especially fishing, traveling, golf (where he very proudly accomplished a hole in one). He was a member of the Ashtabula Elks Lodge #208. He loved all sports but especially the Indians, the O.S.U. Buckeyes and Browns football teams and the Cavaliers. Following retirement Robert and Doris moved to Florida to be closer to their son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughters, who he absolutely adored.
He is survived by his son Bradley (Jeanine); his granddaughters: Kathryn and Mallorie; as well as his sister Marilyn Bouge.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Doris.
