The Eardley Family sends the Wantz Family and Debbie our deepest sympathies. We will continue praying for Bob and all of his loved-ones. Bob touched so many lives, he had such a profound impact on our Chardon community. Bob lived his life with verve and vigor, he had a quick wit and a great sense of humor. It was a great experience to share a Law Office with Bob for 22 years, those are some of the best days of my life. Bob was always available when you needed him the most. Bob will be dearly missed by his family and friends. We pray that Bob is enjoying his next great adventure. There is no doubt that Bob "Left it all on the Table," he treated everyone with respect, he lived a full life with grace and compassion. Bob, this is to you personally, I will miss you dearly, and I will keep you in my prayers, Your Friend, Dave.

My condolences Deb & to Bob's fam. Bobby sure loved life, had a long one & a great legal career! As a rookie Chardon muni court prosecutor way back in '75 in a criminal jury trial, he taught me by 'baptism of fire' the meaning & appreciation of Presumption of Innocence, & Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt! Many moons ago, we were also racquetball partners/opponents at the former Chardon fitness club. Decades later, toward the end of our legal careers we had some memorable co-counsel cases together. R.I.P. Bobby! Fast Eddie, as Bobby used to call me, ;)

My sincere sympathy for your loss. Bob brought me to Chardon and was my mentor in starting my legal career. He was my friend and taught me much. I will miss him very much.
ED BRICE left a message on December 20, 2021:
Deb, my condolences. Bobby led a long & fun-loving life & had a fantastic legal career! I had the honor & pleasure of co-counseling several criminal jury trials late in my legal career with the Master, which led to Not Guilty verdicts in seemingly impossible cases at the start. When I started my legal career in Chardon over 40 years ago, as an assistant Chardon municipal prosecutor, I learned the hard way to appreciate proof beyond a reasonable doubt when Bobby got a NG verdict for his client charged with assault, that seemed to rookie prosecutor me, prior to trial & verdict to be a "slam dunk," open & shut case. R.I.P. Bobby, Ed Brice, or as Bobby affectionately called me "Fast Eddie," ;)

Condolences to all family affected by Bob’s passing. I’m so thankful for the time I was able to visit him this past July. I’ll be reminded of him whenever I write my house number (3250- Bob’s birth year and his graduation from HS year). Memories of my Biggest brother will be with me forever.

To Bob’s family and his dear friend and companion, Debbie, please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of a good friend and a legend in the legal profession. There will never be another Bob Wantz. His great personality and demeanor made him a great trial lawyer. I will, as we all are going to miss his sense of humor and always positive disposition. I pray that in his final resting place he will be forever blessed.
