Robert (Bob) Gene Wedemeyer Jr, 54, Des Moines, Iowa, passed away suddenly September 7, 2020, at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa.
Bob was born in Atlantic, Iowa to Robert and Joyce (Downing) Wedemeyer, Sr. He graduated from Adair-Casey High School in 1984 and attended Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny, Iowa. Bob worked and managed at Waterfront Seafood Market in West Des Moines and Ankeny most of his adult life and met some of his closest and dearest friends while working there. Bob was friend to many, and he loved traveling, camping, river tubing or spending time with friends and family. He especially loved his dog Peev and two cats Bart and Barry.
He is survived by his mother Joyce of Stuart, sister Tamara Watts-McPhail (Glen) of Ankeny, brother Mike (Jill) of Adel, nephew Nathan Wedemeyer of Iowa City and niece Abby Wedemeyer of Adel. In addition, Jodi Bodley of Des Moines will help carry on his legacy as a beloved bonus sister.
Bob is preceded in death by his father Robert Sr., paternal grandparents Harold (Harry) and Anna (Rydl) Wedemeyer of Anita, and maternal grandparents Glen and May (Sharon) Downing of Adair.
A memorial service will be planned following cremation with date, time, and location to be determined.
If he were to summarize his life, I believe he would have said something similar to, "Friends applaud, the comedy is finished." Beethoven

Bob and I were A-C school mates. We played in the band & performed in schools plays together. I’ll always remember Bob’s big personality. He had many good friends and was a friend to many. RIP Bobby, you made the world a better place.

I worked with Bob for 14 years , always had fun and laughed alot.one if my favorite memories goes back to the late 80's, we were working at waterfront morning where we all used ALOT of hairspray. We would make sure our ears weren't covered and shiny from the spray. Going to rocky horror on the weekends and listening to Jodi sing white rabbit.

Bob and I were in many plays at Adair Casey during our high school years. Bob always was so kind and such a good friend, we recently reconnected on Facebook, I’m so sorry to hear of his passing. I will keep him, his family and those that considered him friend in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏🏻
