Issue Date: February 7, 2019
Robert Paull "Bob" Javor, 82, of Green Bay, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019.
Born Sept. 5, 1936 in Copper City, Mi., to Marion and Lottie (Paull) Javor, he attended Menominee High School where he met Donna Anderson and they were married for 60 years before her passing on Sept. 19, 2018.
They spent many weekends camping with their family and in later years, they purchased a cottage on the bay in Oconto where they loved to entertain. He enjoyed traveling, with family at his side, including to Florida, Gulf Shores Al., New York, Maine, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas, Hawaii, Montana and also liked short trips to Chicago and Door County.
He worked at Green Bay Packaging until his retirement. He loved the Green Bay Packers and became a tour guide at the stadium after retirement where he played a part in a wedding proposal on a tour.
A strong Christian faith, he could be heard singing or humming a religious song, was called upon at special occasions to say the prayer and had everyone hold hands. The prayer always ended with him saying, "We will do this again next year". He organized a monthly breakfast club for present and past employees of Green Bay Packaging. He also frequented Cranky Pat's Pizza every other Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
He was loved by all, was not shy and could converse with anyone. He loved walks with his dog and talked with neighbors along the way. A good husband, father and grandfather, he was interested in what the family was involved in on a daily basis.
Survivors include two daughters, Laura (Mike) Jubert and Jackie Javor; two grandchildren; nieces; nephews; other relatives and friends.
Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Donna; a son, Michael and a sister, Dorothy.
Family and friends visited at Blaney Funeral Home in Green Bay on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. until time of the funeral service at noon. Rev. Greg Parent officiated with burial in Allouez Catholic Cemetery.
