Robert Arthur “Bob” O’Hare, 86, of Flourtown, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully at home on July 25, 2021, following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, during which he was surrounded and supported by his family and friends. Bob was predeceased by his beloved wife of 61 years, Carol Ann (McCloskey) O’Hare, in February 2021, his sister Lillian Niebylski and her husband Eddie, and his parents Anna and Arthur O’Hare. Bob was a loving husband, father (father-in-law), grandfather, brother and uncle, a great mentor and a true friend. He touched the lives of many people, near and far, and will be dearly missed. He is survived by his daughter Kathy Milano, Kathy’s husband Louis and their daughter Samantha, and by his son Mike O’Hare, his wife Susan and their sons Connor and Tim, as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Bob was born in Orange, NJ on March 28, 1935 and graduated from Seton Hall Preparatory School. He and Carol were high school sweethearts. Bob obtained a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Newark College of Engineering, where he was an active member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. After he and Carol married in 1958, they moved to Philadelphia where Bob earned a M.S. degree from the University of Pennsylvania's Moore School of Electrical Engineering. Bob began his professional career as an electrical engineer with the Remington Rand Corporation’s UNIVAC division in Blue Bell, PA. His work provided the opportunity for the newlyweds to live in Germany for several years, and they returned to live in Germany for a second stint with their two young children in the mid-1960s. They retained loving connections with their German “family” throughout their lives. The young family eventually returned to live in Oreland, PA and settled permanently in Flourtown, PA. Bob was an enthusiastic participant in life who had the courage to follow his dreams. In the mid-1970s, he left electrical engineering to start his own consulting business, which eventually became known as Performance Improvement Technologies. Over the years, Bob helped many organizations and individuals to achieve success in his roles as consultant and executive coach. He also authored books, articles and blogs and enjoyed supporting Carol’s Color Me Beautiful and Image Consulting business. He was Carol’s biggest fan. When their family was younger, Bob and Carol founded and ran the “Good News” program for high school kids at Saint Genevieve Church with the help of some wonderful young men and women who remained lifelong friends. In recent years, they joined their granddaughter as “Difference Makers” and ran a successful campaign to educate children at the Love Orphanage in Haiti. Bob led the O’Hare family on many adventures in the mountains, to the sea, across the country and around the world. He was a life-long learner who inspired many with his zest for life, childlike curiosity, and generous desire to serve others. Never one to slow down, Bob published his first book at age 75 and earned his black belt in Aikido on his 80th birthday! Bob and Carol were blessed with long and healthy lives and, in later years, they enjoyed traveling, scuba diving, and family vacations at Lake Hauto. Together, they focused on nurturing relationships with family and friends as they enjoyed and supported their children, grandchildren, and “adopted family.” We are all better for having experienced Bob’s “Ki” (life force energy), his sense of humor, and the wisdom he quietly shared. The family would like to thank Bob and Carol’s friends and relatives for their love and incredible support during this past year. The family would also like to thank the dedicated doctors and staff from Abington and Jefferson Hospitals, as well as the wonderful people at Jefferson Health Home Care and Hospice who provided such compassionate and excellent care for Carol, then in turn for Bob, and for all of us. We are deeply grateful. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday August 7, 2021 at 10:00AM at Saint Genevieve Church, 1225 Bethlehem Pike Flourtown, PA 19031. Family and friends are invited to the visitation from 9:00-10:00AM at the church. All are welcome to join the family directly after the service at the O’Hare family home at 209 Haws Lane, Flourtown, PA 19031. The interment will be private. For those who would like to attend virtually, the Mass will be live-streamed and may be accessed through the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1JfmyLNbGqiuKx-CtYRMsQ/featured.
