“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
In Loving Memory of William Robert Hentschel:
It is with solemn hearts that we announce the passing of William Robert Hentschel, known as “Bob,” born in Elizabeth, New Jersey on September 7, 1947, he passed away on September 3, 2023, just days before his 76th birthday. His life was marked by strength, determination, and a commitment to duty.
From an early age, he displayed a resolute character that would define his life’s path. He was a devoted husband for thirty-nine years to Linda Jeanne Hentschel, a loving father to six children: Beth, Robert, David, Kristin, Tara, and Catherine, and a steadfast friend. He approached life with unwavering determination and inspired those around him to do the same.
As a proud Vietnam War veteran, Bob’s service to his country was marked by honor and bravery. He earned numerous accolades for his service, including the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Air Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge and two Purple Hearts. His commitment to duty and his selfless service were a testament to his resilience.
Bob co-owned “Quality Pool Service” with his late brother George, where their dedication to excellence earned them the respect and trust of countless customers. Bob’s strong work ethic and unwavering commitment to quality were evident in every pool they serviced, solidifying his reputation as a respected figure in the community.
In his leisure time, Bob sought solace in the tranquility of fishing and found joy in the timeless melodies of Golden Oldies. These simple pleasures provided him moments of reflection and strength.
Bob’s faith in Christ was a reality in his life, and he lived with a profound sense of trust in God’s plan. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Jeanne Hentschel, his brother John, his 6 children, his 13 beautiful grandchildren, his 3 great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews. His legacy of strength and resilience will continue to inspire generations to come.
A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 10:00 AM at Lakepointe Church in Rockwall, TX, to honor Bob’s memory.
A military burial service will precede this on Friday, September 22, 2023, at 3:00 PM, at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery, located at 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, TX 75211, where we will pay our final respects and recognize his distinguished service to our country.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to Send Relief, the SBC compassion ministry responding to crises at home and abroad, to strengthen vulnerable communities around the world by meeting physical and spiritual needs in Jesus’ name.
