Robert C. Wise III
Bobby will be remembered for his heart of gold, his flowing smile and a willingness to be supportive of his friends. He loved his brother, sister, parents, grandparents and friends unconditionally.
Bobby was a senior honor student at Central Mountain High School in the Health Occupations Curriculum. He was accepted at Lock Haven University this fall in the Chemistry/Biology Pre-med program and aspired to become a general practitioner.
He was always willing to help a friend in need. This may have been best exemplified recently as it was Bobby's request to be an organ donor. Bobby donated three organs to the Gift of Life program and within 24 hours of his death, three people were given a new lease on life.
Bobby loved track and field. He was a member of the Central Mountain team and could be counted on for a morale boost. Additionally, he has been a volunteer for years at the Catholic Church Lenten fish fry. He was employed at Otto's Bar and Grille as a bartender where he was loved by many.
Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life at the Donald G. Walker Funeral Home in Flemington on Wednesday, May 30, 2012, from 4 to 8 p.m.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 31, 2012, at Immaculate Conception Church on West Water Street in Lock Haven.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to The Gift of Life Donor Program, 401 N. Third St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19123.
