Robert "Bob" J. Conway


Conway, Robert “Bob” J., 88, Cresson, passed away August 16, 2022 at UPMC Altoona. Born July 13, 1934, Cresson, son of the late Charles and Bertha (Beiswenger) Conway. He was preceded in death by his brother, Thomas. He was a great husband, father, and brother and a kind person. He was loved by many, including his wife of 59 years, Judith (Miller), whom he married on April 27, 1963; children, Rita (Keith) Bergstein, Ronald (Melanie) Conway, Vicki Conway, Lisa (Thomas) Brown, and Shari (Thomas) Buck; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren; siblings, Florence Miller, Mary Ellen Beechan, Virginia Tarka, and Joseph Conway. Bob was a U.S. Army veteran serving from 1957-1959. While he retired from the railroad, Bob’s true passion was flying. He first learned to fly as a teenager and was proud of the time he served as a commercial pilot for Allegheny Commuter Airline. We like to think he is now happily back in his Captain’s seat at the controls.
