Robert Anfang

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Robert Lawrence Anfang Jr., affectionately known as Bob or Bobby, on June 25, 2024, at the age of 58. Bob was a beloved son, brother, and friend. His constant telling of tales and jokes will be deeply missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.

Bob was born on July 10, 1965, a cherished son of Robert Anfang Sr. and Sandie McIntyre. Bob’s childhood was filled with farm adventures, the values of kindness, integrity, and hard work. Tragically, in 1978, Bob suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a car accident, an event that greatly impacted his life. Despite this, he demonstrated remarkable resilience and courage throughout the years.

At the time of his death, Bob was residing at Glen Oaks Assisted Living in Glenwood City, where he was cared for with great compassion and love by his extended Glenhaven family. Bob’s life was also enriched by the relationships he built with living in previous group homes and working at Rise in New Richmond, WI.

Bob is preceded in death by his father Robert Anfang Sr., his brother David Anfang, step-sister Shawn McIntyre, grandparents Floyd and Marge Platzer, Nina and Alex Anfang, and uncle Gerald Platzer.

He is survived by his loving mother Sandie McIntyre and step-father Gary McIntyre; his sister Tammi Hovde; step-siblings Shane McIntyre (Kristine Aamodt) and Shannon McIntyre; his aunts Sandy Platzer and Virginia Spiess (Mike); and nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A private family graveside service will be held at a later date to honor and remember Bob in a more intimate setting.

Bob’s departure leaves a void, yet his memory will live on in the stories shared and the lives he touched. As we mourn his loss, we also celebrate the beautiful life he led and the indelible mark he left on our hearts.

Rest in peace, Bob. You will forever be in our hearts
