Robert Charles Loeffler


Robert Charles Loeffler ascended into Heaven on April 3, 2018. He was 74 years old.  Robert was born and raised in New York and moved to Glen Rock with his family in 1976.

Robert, also affectionately known as Bob, Bobby, Lefty and Fahttie, worked as a Bond Trader in NYC for the span of his career, retiring just two years ago.

In 1960, Bob met the love of his life, Diane (Biancoli).  At only 16 and 17 years old, neither could have imagined that they were embarking down a lifelong journey together, never leaving each other’s sides. They married in 1963 and shared 54 blissful years together with their two daughters, Jennifer Gardner, Karen Hume and son-in-law Jay Hume, as well as their adoring grandchildren, Amanda Sharp, husband Jon Sharp, Colin Gardner and Tanner Hume.  He and Diane also shared an amazing extended family.  Bob taught strong family values and brought love, strength and laughter to all that knew him.  His warm heart and sense of humor lives on in his family.

He enjoyed spending time with his family, summers in Cape May and playing the guitar.  In the 1960’s, he played guitar in a band that was asked to perform on American Bandstand.  He was an avid fan of the NY Mets, Knicks and Rangers.

Bob was pre-deceased by his father Harry, mother Margaret and sister Peggy.

Visitation is being held on Friday, April 6 from 5:00-9:00 pm with final farewells on Saturday, April 7 at 10:00 a.m.  A church service followed by burial will be held at 11:00 am at the Old Stone Church and Cemetery, 500 East Saddle River Road, Saddle River.

I worked very closely with Bob in the 1980s and hired him to manage the bond dept of my new firm. I remember him fondly. He was very talented and a wonderful person. My deepest condolences to his family.

We never really lose those we love as long as we hold their memories in our hearts and enjoy the laughter and joy those memories bring. Hold on tight to each other and cry and laugh and remember. Karen, my thoughts and prayers are with you and all who knew and loved your dad.
