Obituary for Robert Menchhofer

Robert Menchhofer
Bob (Robert) Menchhofer died on April 14, a week shy of his 74th birthday, from complications related to Alzheimer’s Disease which he battled since 2004.

Bob was a traveler, a football coach, a drama and creative writing teacher, a poet, a merchant seaman, a salesman, a manager, an orchid grower, a lover of life. He embraced adventure and enjoyed nothing so much as a good story either to tell or listen to.

Bob retired from his teaching position at Ladue Junior High when early onset Alzheimer’s began to steal his abilities. He fought the disease with good humor and bravery, volunteering at the St. Louis Alzheimer’s Association where he spoke at multiple AzD events and spent several years calling other AzD sufferers through the Let’s Talk program. Bob often said that the association’s early stage program “saved his life.”

Bob leaves behind his wife of 50 years, Nancy (nee Williams ), daughters Kelly (Mark) Steinmann and Amy (Nacho San Miguel) Menchhofer and four grandchildren Lily, Sofia, Andy, and Nicolas Robert.
He is also survived by two sisters, Carolyn (Roy) Berryman and Ann (Tim) O’Neill, and two brothers, Doug (Isabel) and Paul Menchhofer as well as a loving family of in-laws, nieces, and nephews.

A private family memorial is being planned to honor Bob Menchhofer’s life.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be sent in Bob’s name to the Greater Missouri Alzheimer’s Association (https://www.alz.org/greatermissouri/ or 9370 Olive Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63132).

“My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved. I have been given much and I have given something in return. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.”
Oliver Sacks.
