Robert John “Bobby” McNeish, 52, of Petrolia went to Rest with The Lord on October 24, 2020 after a hard fought battle against Brain Cancer. After previously surviving an almost fatal electrocution, he was truly a miracle.

Before his illnesses, Bobby was an avid hunter and outdoorsman. For several years he was the Commander of the Sons of The American Legion Post 243 in West Sunbury and was known to be there to help any of his friends and family no matter what, where, or when. Bobby always had a smile on his face and could make the best, and a joke, out of any situation. He was a lover of all Pittsburgh Sports and could always be found with a Coors Light in hand. Words cannot describe how strong and brave he was, as no one should have to suffer as much as he had since his accidental electrocution in 2017.

Bobby is survived by his wife, Melissa (Reddick) McNeish, of Petrolia; his daughter: Megan McNeish, of St. Petersburg, PA; his father: Bill (Susie) McNeish, of North Washington; one sister, Gina Severino (Kathy Dufford) of Butler; two brothers: Billy McNeish of Euclid and Brian McNeish; his mother-in-law, Judy Reddick, of Forestville; his brother-in-law, Ed Reddick, of Grove City; as well as many well-loved nieces and nephews; and most importantly, his Best Buddy Bryson.

Bobby was preceded in death by his mother, Connie Severino- McNeish; maternal grandparents, Mary and Joseph Severino, father-in-law, Vernon Reddick, and his many Aunts and Uncles.

Per Robert’s requests, there will be no visitation and services.

I don't remember when I met Bobby. It seems like I always knew him. We played ball together, 30 some years ago, and from then on I called him Roberto. He always got a kick out of that. He was a standup, "I'll do it" kind of man. Twice when the SAL needed him for our Commander, he stepped up and took charge. Helping others came naturally. He would be there, without question. This world is a little colder without Roberto. I will say a prayer for his family, who have suffered so much through the past 3 years. May we all strive to be more like Roberto. God bless us all.

We can not tell you how sorry we were to hear about the passing of Bobbie. He was always thinking of others before himself. When he would call Gary he would always ask how my cancer treatments were going. Gary always considered him a brother and always will. He will be missed by many. Our deepest sympathy to you and all of your family.
