July 20, 1936 — May 18, 2024

New Philadelphia, Ohio

Robert D. Kandel, 87, of New Philadelphia passed away suddenly on Saturday, May 18, 2024.  


Born on July 20, 1936, in Holmes County, Ohio, he was the son of the late Dan and Alma (Sommers) Kandel.

He dedicated over 45 years at Alsco Anaconda in Gnadenhutten before his retirement.  


During his leisure time, Robert found solace in the simple joys of life. He had a green thumb and enjoyed tending to his garden. Additionally, he cherished moments spent deer hunting and fishing at Lake Erie. These activities brought him immense happiness and allowed him to connect with nature.
