Robert “Bob” Allen Cartwright


Faith. Family. Pets. Pittsburgh. Troop. Travel. How would you pull off an amazing 72 years of a life well lived? Robert “Bob” Allen Cartwright lived it through those six words.

Born and raised in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, Bob graduated with degrees from Penn State and the University of Akron in Mechanical Engineering.  Bob began his career as a draftsman and retired as an accomplished Project Manager, working on such signature projects as the Ford Motor Company Wixom Plant, US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, and the Assent in Covington. Holding multiple leadership roles in the churches he attended, Bob was an active member of Burlington First Church of Christ and had a passion for missions, attending mission trips on four continents.  Also, Bob was an EMT and assistant director of Seville-Guilford EMS.  He later used these medical skills on various medical mission trips.

“Mr. Bob”, an Eagle Scout, loved being an active role model and positive influence for members and families of Boy Scout Troop 724, as well as the elementary children at Burlington First Church.  Bob was always willing to help others with a wide variety of work any time he was asked.  After his retirement, he enjoyed traveling with family, following his Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates from his favorite chair, and cuddling with his dogs.

Bob now worships with his father Robert “Pop” Cartwright and his Brother-in-Law, John Davila, in Heaven.  Carrying on his memory is Marilyn, his wife of 50 years, four children; Catherine McCay (Steve), Robert E. Cartwright (Dena), Christina Leamon (Jason), and Cynthia Littleton (Jeremiah); four grandchildren, Jacob, Jesse, Nicholas, and Jenna.  Also, Bob leaves behind his mother, Ethel Hill Cartwright, his sister, Carol Sue Davila, brother-in-law, Gary Meglich (Joyce) and many nieces and nephews.

Bob’s family is celebrating his legacy with a private service at home, with hopes of having a celebration of life gathering at a later date.  Loving memories and condolences may be posted at  In lieu of flowers and gifts, consider donating to Master Provisions, FAME, or First Church Impact Mission – Ghana.   Donations can be made through Linnemann Family Funeral Home, Burlington, KY.

A great and real man!

I met Bob Cartwright while working at B&W in Barberton, Oh. We became very good friends. When he finally went to work for Honeywell in Michigan. I remember him saying if a position becomes available in my field of lighting and electrical, he would put my name in. Well, he did a year later and of course I also moved to Michigan. He was a great believer in the Word and will always be remembered as a wonderful person. Bless his family!

To Cindy and Jeremiah

Very sorry. He sounded like a wonderful man Cindy. Prayers for you all

Mr. Bob

We were blessed to know Mr. Bob through Scouts. My youngest said, “I feel lucky. Lucky to have had the opportunity to go to summer camp with Mr. Bob.” He loved each scout as his own. It was an honor to know him. Thank you, Mr. Bob. We love you and miss you.

We loved it when you guys would come out……especially for the balloon fiesta! Bob comes from a long line of “good guys”……..including his dad and Grandpa Ron. He made Grandma very happy. We love you all and pray God will surround you with dear people to help comfort you.
