Robert “Bob” S. Reiderman

September 01, 1943 ~ July 07, 2021

On July 7, 2021, Robert S. Reiderman “Bob” passed away after a valiant fight with cancer. His greatest love was the love he shared with his wife Kathleen Sue Detterman who survives him. They were married February 2, 1963 and have four children: Robin Huitron married to Joe, Robert Reiderman married to Tami, Randall Reiderman who married Dee (dec), and Regina Breeden married to Michael.

He has left a legacy of love for their 17 grandchildren: Erica, Nikki, Alex, Ally, Brandon, Logan, Bob, Chanda, Kayla, Brittany, Billy, Curtis, Shaun, Bridget, Amanda, Alisha, and Colton. As well as his 20 great-grandchildren.

Bob is one of seven children of Edmund and Theresa Marie Brown Reiderman who fostered an unwavering family commitment in all of their children. Bob cherished this commitment to his siblings and their spouses to his last days. Sisters: Alice (dec) and husband Harvey (dec) Valentine, Pat and husband Bob (dec) Neidermier, Karen and husband Tony Frankart. Brothers: John (dec) and wife Jo Ann Reiderman, Andy and wife Pat Reiderman, Kenny and wife Connie Reiderman, and departed wife Wendy (dec).

Bob was a member of the Catholic faith all his life. He was a US Army veteran and a member of the American Legion, Knights of Columbus and Moose. He worked at RR Donnelley for 37 years in Willard, Ohio, Renosa, Mexico, and Harrisonburg, Virginia. He strived to be the best co-worker and boss possible and felt honored to be recognized even years after retirement as a fair and respected co-worker who was always willing to champion a just cause.

He is remembered by friends and family for his booming voice, hard-headedness, attention to detail, and off-beat sense of humor. He enjoyed listening to music and singing along, watching westerns, and keeping things that he will certainly use one day. But mostly Bob was known for his big heart.
He was a good man that walked with integrity and will be missed.

A memorial service will be at Church of the Epiphany at 201 Lafayette Street, Port Orange Florida 32127 on Tuesday July 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers and donations, please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society.

What a legacy Uncle Bob left. Uncle Bob was great to be around. I felt so welcomed at his house. It was fun to see my Dad and Uncle Bob get so animated over Donnelly’s.

Uncle Bob fought some tough battles with cancer and always maintained a positive outlook. I am going to miss you. I am sad that I didn’t get to see you more, especially since your move to Florida. COVID and cancer concerns again were no good.

So sorry for your family’s loss.

Oh how we loved visiting with him and Kathy when they would come back to Ohio to visit.
We will miss his booming laughs and his BIG bear hugs.
May knowing that others are thinking of you and saying special prayers, be comforting to you.
God Bless all of you.

Dear Kathy,
What a wonderful family you and Bob are responsible for.
I cherish the times we all shared in Massanutten.
It’s seem strange to have you in Florida after all those great years in Virginia.
As a Donnelley employee I only got to knew Bob after I retired.
I’m so I had the opportunity to get to know you and Bob. One thing I know for sure it love to set records while running a press.
I believe in eternal and one day I hope we can be together again.
My sympathies to you and your children.
Sincerely, Bob Bloomquist

Bob was a joy to work for. He was amazing at coming up with all kinds of tricks to make a roll of paper or a press to run. And we always enjoyed those after second shift nights at his home. Kathy put up with a lot from us! May God bless and hold you all during this difficult time.

Kathy and family,
It’s sad to hear of the loss of Bob. He was a good person and I enjoyed his presence at work (Harrisonburg and Reynosa) and sharing a few beverages with him afterwards.

You always knew when Robert was in the room with his deep voice and laugh. He always had an opinion which sometimes made for some serious discussions but you always knew where you stood with Bob and I appreciated his frankness and honesty.

Kathy and the entire Reiderman family, I am sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. As one of the 4 original press journeyman to help start up the Hburg pressroom the list of his contributions to the success of Hburg are too many to mention. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Bob and learn so much about the printing process from him. He demonstrated an outstanding work ethic, integrity and commitment to RRD. He was a straight shooter and solid teacher. When Bob committed to doing something, you knew it would get done. His laughter and booming voice was contagious – especially after a few beers!! I am honored and grateful that he allowed me to “stand on his shoulders”.
Take care,
Gary Calleo

Sincere condolences to aunt Kathy & family. I have happy memories of riding in his convertible and the drive-in theatre when I was a child. I often annoyed him with my questions & persistence, but gleaned a lot of carpentry & life lessons from him. You were “dumber than a hay rake” if you didn’t see things his way! To me, he was the Fonzi of the family – 50’s music, Elvis lover, greased comb-back. You were also a very dear friend to dad. You will be missed, your nephew Mike

Kathy and family,
We were sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Bill had some good times and memories of working with Bob at Donnelleys in Willard. We enjoyed the Sunday morning chats after church in Republic at your house. Bill always valued his advice. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
