Rob leaves behind his wife, Rozina; their sons, Jacob and Noah; his brother, Kevin (Kelly) Eikenbary; his nephews, Garrett and Chase Eikenbary, and in-laws, Randy and Margie Stackhouse.
Rob was born on May 9, 1970 in Lima, Ohio to the late Robert D. and Donna R. (Riling) Eikenbary. He grew up in Dola and graduated in 1989 from Hardin Northern.

Rob was currently employed as the maintenance supervisor at Golden Giant, Inc. He also was the owner of Classic Trophy and Engraving.
Rob was a devoted husband and father. He welcomed many of his son’s friends into his home and enjoyed cooking for his family. Rob was especially proud of Jacob’s mechanical ability. He was looking forward to watching Noah wrestle at the collegiate level.
Rob was always helping behind the scene with whatever project Rozina was working on. He volunteered coaching midget football and was the Cubmaster for Pack 121. He was a member of the Kenton Moose #428 and St. John’s Evangelical Church.
Rob enjoyed camping at Indian Lake during the summer and was affectionately known as “Popcorn Rob” at Frosty’s Campground. During the sport season, he could be heard yelling at the coaches and referees or
arguing with his friends about last night’s game.
