Robert C. “Bob” Padgett

July 18, 1948 - August 17, 2023


Robert C. Padgett, Sr., of Brighton Township, PA, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away on August 17th at the age of 75. Bob was raised in Aliquippa, PA and was a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves. He was a graduate of Geneva College and the University of Wisconsin, and also earned SPHR and SHRM certifications in Human Resources. Bob was immensely proud of his work as a Human Resources Director. He also loved learning new things, eating at diners, spending time cooking with his family – especially on Thanksgiving – and vacationing in Hilton Head, SC. Bob fought a long battle with cancer, and his family is incredibly proud of his bravery and positivity. His recent favorite accessory was a baseball cap labeled “SURVIVOR,” which describes him so well. Bob is survived by his loving wife Candice; his sister Peggy Padgett of North Carolina; his children Mandy Dlugos (Dale), Robert Padgett, Jr. (Janel), Jeffrey Padgett (Jennifer); six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Marguerite Padgett, and sister Patricia Wyatt. Bob made an impression on the lives of many people thanks to his outgoing personality, sense of humor and kindness. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and colleagues. Bob’s family wishes to thank the team at the AHN Cancer Institute for their compassionate care and support, especially the nursing staff who cared for him over the last several weeks. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the AHN Oncology Care Fund or the charity of your choice supporting cancer research.

  1. My deepest and heartfelt sympathy to the Padgett Family. Robert was not only our “HR Director”, but a beloved friend and co-worker! I will deeply miss his daily phone calls.

    Rest peacefully my friend!

  2. So very sad to know that he is gone. I went to high school with Bob and I really enjoyed catching up with him these last few years. I will miss our chats and his encouraging advice to “ Stay well Mary, and enjoy yourself. You never know what’s around the corner”. That’s how he ended most of our chats! He will be missed by all who got to know him. My Sympathy to his Wife and children that he loved so much!

    I’m so sad for your family. Bob was a good man. I enjoyed catching up with him when we would run in to each other at the grocery store or coffee shop. He always was positive and encouraging – and and funny!

    I worked with Bob in an office for a couple years. He would make his rounds every day. Having our daily 20 minute conversation was one of my favorite parts of the day. We always made each other laugh and he was genuinely interested in what I had to say. I will miss him greatly. Don’t take anything for granted in life.
