Obituary for Robert E. Minock

Robert E. Minock died on March 11, 2017 after a hard fought year-long battle with liver cancer.

Bob was born on March 3, 1944 in Port Huron, Michigan to Warren and Lillian (nee. Schultz) Minock. After graduation from Port Huron High School, he earned a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration from Western Michigan University.

Bob married Ann Marie McDonnell on November 24, 1967, and together raised two children in Highland. A talented craftsman, Bob built the family home in Highland and enjoyed wood carving from the chair in the living room.

Bob founded Lakeside Window in White Lake Township in 1982, and in 2000, Bob sold the company to his employees and filled his retirement doing the many things he enjoyed. A true lover of the out-of-doors, Bob enjoyed spending time in northern Michigan on Black Lake and hunting deer and turkey. A great swimmer, Bob swam competitively as a youth and at one time swam from the US to Canada, earning first place even though he was only 16.

He lived life to the fullest — a people person at heart and a good friend, Bob was ever willing to use his talents to help others. He was the best neighbor, always ready to help cut grass or plow snow. Bob was known and admired for his compassion and for his deep love of his family.

He is survived by Ann Marie Minock, his beloved wife of nearly fifty years; his son, Jason (Megan) Minock; his daughter, Elizabeth (Vaughn) Smith; grandchildren, Bryce and Paul Minock, Hayden and Hudson Smith; brother, Dennis (Pat) Minock of Port Huron; sisters and brothers-in-law, Sue Minock, Lillian (Rich) Walker, Russ (Jean) McDonnell, Bob (Mary) Bedford, Ed (the late Catherine) Garcia-McDonnell, Mike (Joni) McDonnell; extended family, Brian and Katie Salyers and Marie Slotnick, and many nieces, nephews and dear friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Lillian Minock; brother, Duane Minock; brother-in-law, Dan McDonnell.
