Robert Congdon

Robert Congdon of Caro, age 67, passed away at his home on Saturday, July 7, 2018. Bob was born October 20, 1950 in Cass City, the son of the late Earl J. and Rachel Edith (Putman) Congdon. He was united in marriage with the former Sharon Szukala on July 24, 1970 in Detroit. Bob spent his working years with the Chrysler Corporation, first at the Lynch Road Assembly Plant in Detroit and later at Warren Stamping, in a career that spanned 28 years until his retirement in 2001. His spare time was often spent metal scrapping, coin collecting, building model cars and “back door hunting.” Bob enjoyed western movies and was happiest when he was watching his grandchildren.
