Robert Wayne Conkle, 58 of Omaha, Illinois, passed away at 3:21 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at Deaconess Midtown in Evansville, Indiana.
Robert was born in Rosiclare, in Hardin County General Hospital on Wednesday, January 30, 1963 to the late Weldon O. and Lou Ann (Lievers) Conkle. His first marriage was to Ester Fay Sherrick.
He then, in 2011, found his life partner in Carole “Mickey” Lambert, and she survives him in Omaha, IL.
He is survived by his brothers, Charles Conkle and his friend, Kathy of Elizabethtown, IL and George Conkle of Rosiclare, IL; his aunt Betty Davis of Rosiclare, IL; his adopted aunt Margie Burton of Norris City, IL; adopted “Mama Sue” Armstrong of Macomb, IL; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He is also survived by his little girl, his furbaby, Harley Ann, his cat; and his devoted longtime caregiver and friend Regina Frichtl of Evansville, Indiana.
He was a beautiful soul who loved life. He was a Christian man. He expressed his faith in Christ at a young age. He went forth to be Saved in 2013 and it was a beautiful experience.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Weldon and Lou Ann Conkle; his sister, Mary Beth Reed; his brother-in-law, Randy Reed; and his grandparents.
