Robert “Bob” Condon, 80, of Wolfsville, Maryland, completed his earthly days on December 31, 2021.
He grew up as the middle son of Charles and Rose Mary Condon, with brothers Charles William “Bill” and John, and sister Mary, on their farm near Oswego, Illinois.
He attended the University of Illinois earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. After graduation, he served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador, South America. Following this experience, Bob returned to the University of Illinois, earning a Ph.D. in statistical analysis.
Bob worked for the Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine as a mathematical statistician.
His values through life were honesty, integrity, and fairness. He was a collector at heart - especially of ideas, experiences, relationships, and “rusty metal with potential.”
Family, extended family, his faith, and community were important and where he expended a lot of energy. Hobbies included baling hay, cutting firewood, and working at community functions. Over the years, he was active with the Wolfsville Ruritan Club, Boy Scout Troop 286, 4-H, PTA, and Holy Family Catholic Community.
He temporarily leaves his wife Sara “Sally,” their family - Tim (Sara), Nancy (Terry), and Ed (Svetlana); sister Mary; beloved grandchildren, nieces and nephews, extended immediate families; and different communities of friends - each treasured, enjoyed, and respected.
