Obituary

Robert J. "Bob" Mors Jr, 77, of Oswego passed away unexpectedly on February 4, 2018 at his house. He was born March 4th, 1940.

Bob grew up in Arlington Heights and then graduated from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where he competed on the track team. Bob proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. His dedication to his country continued in many ways, especially through the Fox Valley Veteran's Breakfast Club. More than ever, Bob was proud of the V.A flag that he was able to obtain from The Moving Wall for the River Run Club House. Bob worked as an Regional Salesman for Lyon Metal Products, then proudly started his own business thereafter. He went on to work at Crown Lift Trucks and retired in 2011.

Bob, Dad, Papa or Granddad was known for his love for family. He would do his best to help anyone. Bob had a quick whit and could light up any social event. He had rules, a strong sense of integrity, high expectations of his love ones and a strong sense of faith. After the devastating loss of his beloved wife, Judy, he raised his three children in the 70's, which most men couldn't have imagined doing. Above all, he was a gentleman. He excepted perfection, while he danced with his own flaws. He always had faith in knowing and sharing that "Everything happens for a reason."

He was preceded in death by his adoring parents, Robert Sr. and Barbara (Dresser) Mors; the love of his life, Judith (nee King) Mors; his beloved son, Michael T. Mors as well as his beloved granddaughter, Christian Joy Kellett.

He leaves behind his family that cherished him so very much; his two daughters, Kelly (Jeff) Kellett, and Cindy Mors-Nelson; his exceptional grandchildren, Samson Kellett, PJ Nelson, Quincy Kellett, Taylor Nelson and Barron Nelson; his brother, William (Melodie) Mors and his two nephews, Justin and Nathan Mors.

Visitation will take place from 3-7 P.M. on Friday, February 9, 2018 at The Healy Chapel, 370 Division Dr., Sugar Grove, IL followed by a service at 7 P.M.
