November 24, 1965 - December 17, 2020
Robert J. “Bob” Maxa, age 55, died peacefully with his family at his side, after a long and difficult struggle with multiple health problems on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at Reflections – End of Life Care in Northfield. Bob was born on November 24, 1965 in New Prague to Jacob A. and Audree A. (Sullivan) Maxa. He attended St. Wenceslaus School and graduated from New Prague High School. He worked at Chart Industries and most recently as a custodian for the New Prague School District. Bob was a quiet, gentle soul with a unique sense of humor. In his younger years and before health issues took a toll, he enjoyed annual trips to Mexico with friends. His nieces and nephews enjoyed watching NASCAR and sports with him on television. His interest in sports found him touring baseball parks. He loved music, especially classical rock. His gentle heart and quiet nature will be sorely missed by his family and close friends.
Bob is survived by his siblings, Paul (Anne) Maxa of Richfield, Annie (Pete) Kartak of New Prague, June (Randy) Downing of Blaine, Kate (Bill) Tabor of Lakeville, Bill (Janell) Maxa of New Prague; numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents.
