Until the very end of his life he enjoyed watching “Jeopardy”, checking the Sports page every morning, reading his favorite books, and taking rides where he read aloud every road sign, kept time to the radio, and offered commentary on the splendors of the Virginia countryside. One of 16 children, Bob has seven surviving siblings: Mary Traub, Dorothy “Dolly” Christ, Alan Angst, Grace Fees, Beverly “Kitty” Hallick, Richard “Dick” Angst, and Bruce Angst. Many of their descendants still live in Central Pennsylvania. In addition to them he is survived by two children: Lou Ann Jones of Ashburn, VA and Daniel R. Angst of Boulder, CO. Bob was predeceased by his oldest daughter, Marybeth Beaver of Somers Point, NJ. Four grandchildren also survive him: John and David Kemp of Ashburn, VA, Hannah Angst of New York City, and Olivia Angst of Glenwood Springs, CO.
