DECATUR — Robert Louis Kileen, 87, known affectionately as Popo to many, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 17, 2019. He is survived by his amazing and loving wife of 64 ½ yrs, Sara, his 3 children and their spouses who loved him dearly; Nancy (Sam) Pearl, MaryAnn (Perry) Ford, and David (Lori) Kileen, and 6 loving grandchildren (the “above-the-laws”); Chelsea (Ryan) Troy, Theron Ford, Sara (Brian) Margosian, Benjamin (Ella) Kileen, Ellison Ford, and Anna Kileen. Bob was the only child of, and preceded in death by Raymond and Catherine Kileen. As a 4th out of 5 generations of Kileens born in Decatur, Bob was a Decatur historian. He attended the University of Illinois, was inducted into Sachem Leadership Honorary Society and a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. He graduated from Millikin University in 1954 with a degree in Accounting. While at Millikin, he met Sara Dingman, who would become the love of his life. He was known as a local philanthropist extraordinaire. He was especially generous with his resources, time and leadership at Woodland Chapelampstand Church since 1957, the Great Banquet, Boy Scouts (Council Pres, Regional VP, Rhodes France Boy Scout Reservation Fundraising Co-Chair, Silver Beaver recipient), AMBUCS (Chapter President, Governor, Regional Director, AMBUC of year, Charity Golf Tournament Co-Chair - all focused on creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities), DMH Now and Tomorrow Council, Jim Rupp State Senate Campaign Chairman, AFS host family (Francois Sauber - who continues to be a member of the family), Decatur Celebration, and Decatur Athletic Boosters (Initiated and supported efforts to fund athletic programs). Bob worked in Technical Sales for Miller Industrial for 42 yrs. He never met a stranger nor took his customers for granted. His greatest delight was being involved in his grandchildren's lives; he was extremely proud of their accomplishments and faithfully attended their activities and sporting events. In his 23 years of retirement he enjoyed hiking, camping and skiing in the mountains of Colorado, being an active member of the Venture III community in Florida, golfing, biking, reading, traveling, celebrating the Cubs 2016 World Series, and tending to his yard and garden. Popo was a proud American, and achieved his goal that his 3 children would visit all 50 states and the Holy Land. On our final pilgrimage we will all meet in Heaven- Go with God, Popo, until we meet again… A memorial service to celebrate Bob's life will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, July 22, 2019, at Lampstand Presbyterian Church, 655 South Airport Road, Decatur, Illinois.
