HALIFAX • Robert D. Hoover, lovingly referred to as Bob or Jake, left this earth to join his savior and heavenly family April 26, 2019, after enjoying 88 years of life. He passed over with admirable grace, dignity, thankfulness and appreciation. Bob was a window maker at Capitol Products in Mechanicsburg before retiring to the good life in 1990.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond C. and Kathryn (Whitman) Hoover; siblings: Russell, Pauline (Strohecker), Raymond Jr., Betty Lou and Eugene; granddaughter Melissa Hoover and daughter-in-law Rose (Mace) Miller.
