Robert Lee Games, age 90 of Granger, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, August 10, 2021. Bob was born August 14, 1930, in Canton, Illinois to the late Leo V. and Helen (Woolem) Games. Following graduation from high school, Bob enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served honorably in the 314th Motor Vehicle Squadron both in the US and overseas. While serving his country, Bob married Rose Marie Schulte in St. Louis, Missouri on March 20, 1950. They recently celebrated their 71st anniversary.

Mr. Games was self-employed for many years as a tool and die designer and chose to continue serving his clients until just two years ago, retiring at the age of 88. The work ethic Bob learned in his younger years was worn like a badge of honor for Bob and he passed those traits of honest work and integrity to his family. In his spare time, Bob and Rose enjoyed traveling the US in their motorhome. A talented woodworker, Bob enjoyed building custom furniture for his family and friends.
Most of all, Bob was a man of faith. He was a longtime member of Christian Center Church in South Bend where he served faithfully as an Elder for many years. He and Rose also shared their faith through ministry in the St. Joseph County Jail. Many lives were changed because of his compassionate commitment to the Lord.
