Obituary for Robert Lee Truslow

November 5, 1929 - April 11, 2019
Colora, Maryland | Age 89


Robert Lee Truslow, age 89 of Colora, MD passed away on April 11, 2019 at Upper Chesapeake Hospital. Robert was known lovingly as "Bob", "Sarge" and "Pop" by his loving family and many friends. Born November 5, 1929 in Blythedale, MD, Bob was the eldest son of fourteen children to the late Frank W. Truslow and the late Gabella (Snelling) Truslow.

Bob served his country proudly in the U.S. Army for twenty years where he taught at Aberdeen Proving Ground during his last two years of service. He worked as a welder and pipefitter and also owned a furniture store in Rising Sun, MD called Bo Bo Mac. Bob enjoyed tinkering with his Hamm Radio, vegetable gardening and reading Westerns. He also enjoyed cooking and was known for his famous Yakitori Chicken. He found peace in being next to the water, whether it was at the Bay or at a riverside. Bob was a dedicated family man and was considered the patriarch of the family. If someone needed help of advice, they would seek him out. He truly was a "Big Brother" to all and will be missed deeply.

Bob is survived by his wife of 42 years, Delilah Truslow; son: Robert H. Truslow and his wife, Kristin; two step-sons: Walt Ragan and his wife, Deanna, Dean Ragan; two stepdaughters: Debbie Yale and her fiancé, Tom Dye and Wanda Willard and her husband, Steve. Bob is also survived by ten grandchildren, six great grandchildren and four siblings.

Including his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his grandson, D.J. Ragan and many brothers and sisters.
