Robert M. Berenda, 82, of Hampton Township suddenly passed away at his home on June 26, 2022. He

Grandpa to Caden Brenner and Nickolas Adams.
He was a graduate of North Catholic High School and went on to the University of Dayton. He was a
member of the U.S. Air Force and Army serving six years where he was a medic during the Vietnam War.
In his career he spent many years marketing and selling in the coal industry, beginning with Shannopin
Mining and expanding to other affiliates.
He was a devout Catholic where he spent much of his time practicing his faith and mentoring the youth,
specifically those who needed his guidance. He was a unique guy with such a big personality, a man of
conviction, and stayed true to them. We can still hear Bob say, “Hears what you want to do…” He will
be remembered by so many.
