Robert C. “Bob” Adams

Robert C. “Bob” Adams, 67, of St. Petersburg, passed away suddenly Thursday morning December 29th, 2022

Robert was born on September 22nd, 1955. He was the son of the late Donald A. Adams and Shirley Kifer Overheim.

Raised in Clintonville and St. Petersburg, he was a graduate of A-C Valley where he made many lifelong friends. He had many memories of playing baseball in his younger days.

Bob married the love of his life, Margie Corso, on December 8th, 1988. They were together for 41 years in total spending several years in Knox but moved back to St. Petersburg almost twenty years ago. Bob always knew his true home was in St. Petersburg and loved having people get together in his garage to watch his “Manland band”.

Bob worked for the Knox Glass Plant, Delta Contracting, and retired from UFP, Parker in 2020.

Bob was an avid golfer, or whacka-whacka, if it was a nice day you could bet he was out on the course with his two best friends, Chuck and Lucky. He was also a member of the Rod and Gun Club of Knox.

Bob is survived by his wife, Margie, and her two children, Shelly Kaltenbach and James Best; three grandchildren, Jennifer (Larry) Reichard, Tyler, and Olivia Best, and most recently a great-granddaughter, Freyja Reichard, who he loved to see and watch grow. Also, surviving are two sisters, Donna (Larry) Stewart, and Lori (Dan) Matthews; one aunt, Louise Kifer Cook; numerous nieces and nephews, his best friend, Chuck Beals, and his faithful companion, Lucky, his dog.

In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his stepdad, James Overheim.

A celebration of life will be arranged by his family for a later date. 

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Hile Funeral Home Inc., St. Petersburg. Condolences may be sent by visiting
