Robert D. Bracken
Robert D. Bracken, 48, formerly of New Castle, went home to be with the Lord on Sept. 16, 2019, after fighting a two-year illness.
He was born March 18, 1971, in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.
Twenty-eight years ago, Rob met the love of his life, Cindy. Together they shared a loving family with their daughter, Crystal.
Professionally, Rob worked as a memorialist engraving and providing headstones, as well as providing interment and disinterment services for many cemeteries in the area. His passion in life was serving the families that came his way, and he maintained a great working relationship with the funeral industry throughout the tri-state area. Rob took great pride in his work and was one of the very best.
He is survived by his wife, the former Cindy Parish, of New Middletown, Ohio; a daughter, Crystal (Leacock) and her husband, Kevin Stanton, and their daughters, Harper and Hazel; his mother and stepfather, Marlene and William Neugebauer Sr.; a brother, Eric Bracken Sr. and his fiancee, Karen Guckert; three sisters, Laura (David) Wingard, Marlene (Mike) Kohler and Barbara Bracken; a stepbrother, William (Wendy) Neugebauer Jr.; a stepsister, Robin Neugebauer; sisters-in-law, Diane Mikelonis and Glenda (Dan) Edmonds; and brother-in-law, Ray McCluskey; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Rob was preceded in death by his grandparents; a brother-in-law, Joseph Mikelonis; a sister-in-law, Rhonda McCluskey; and mother and father-in-law, Glen and Doris Parish.
The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice House for the exceptional care and kindness; and that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the Hospice House, 9803 Sharrott Road, Poland, Ohio 44514.
Calling hours will be 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the J. Bradley McGonigle Funeral Home and Crematory Inc., 111 W. Falls St., New Castle.
A Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the funeral home with the Rev. Jim Swanson officiating.
