Robert John "Bob" Wente,
75, of Indianapolis, departed this life at his home on Monday, July 23, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 18, 1943 to the late Joseph Robert and Marion (Abrams) Wente in Brooklyn, NY. Bob was a graduate of Arsenal Tech High School and then entered the United States Navy where he proudly served for four years.

Bob worked for Indiana Bell / Ameritech for over 33 years, retiring in 1999. From a young age, Bob was fascinated with aviation, and earned his wings as a private pilot who enjoyed taking family and friends on local flights. Bob also loved to play golf with his buddies and always had a motorcycle to ride in the summer. He most recently owned a Harley-Davidson which he loved to ride on the "twisty" roads of Tennessee and Kentucky on yearly trips with friends and family.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 51 years, Carolyn J. (Woods) Wente; his dedicated children, Brian (Heather) Wente, Kevin (Tammy) Wente and Anita (Dan) Short; his loving sister, Susan Muller and six wonderful grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Visitation for Bob will be from 2:00 pm until time of sharing at 4:00 pm on Sunday, July 29th at Leppert Mortuary - Nora Chapel. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society. Online condolences are available at: www.leppertmortuary.com

I just heard the sad news today from Aunt Lois. So sorry for your loss.

I met Mr. Wente by sheer coincidence through work, and it has been a pleasure getting to know him and his beautiful, supportive wife. I met Mr. Wente in passing not realizing that his daughter in law Heather was a teacher of mine. I learned this through good conversation.
I wish I had the chance to know Mr. Wente more, but I am thankful for the time I was able to have with him. Mr. Wente was very outgoing and always had a positive outlook regardless of where life has taken him. Every time I saw him, he would always bear a smile regardless of the situation at hand.
My condolences go out to the family, especially to Mrs. Carolyn Wente.
Sadly I could not make it to the service today because I’m working, but in memory of Mr. Wente, I have made a $25 donation to the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association.

Best Regards,
-Chey

"But as for me, I will sing about Your Strength. In the morning I will tell about Your Loyal Love.
For You are my secure refuge and a place for me to flee in my time of distress.
Psalm 59:16

One of my best friends and fellow employee at Indiana Bell. He taught me a lot through the years which I greatly appreciated. There was never a finer person to work or spend time riding motorcycles within this world. I'll miss his greatly.
