Obituary of Robert Lewandowski

Robert “Bob” R. Lewandowski, 80, passed away peacefully on March 15, 2024, at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center. Robert was born in Birmingham, AL, on September 12, 1943, was raised in Detroit, MI, and moved to Polk County with his father in 1977. He served in the US Army during Vietnam and was awarded the Bronze Star. He was a kind, friendly man, with an outgoing personality, who lived to make people laugh. Bob most loved God, music, classic movies, eating out and Detroit Tigers baseball.

Robert was a well-known resident of Winter Haven for many years, and was frequently seen walking all over town while visiting his favorite local businesses, like Bank of America, Goodwill, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart. He was also active in several local churches through the years, particularly Christ Community. If he met you once, he certainly wouldn’t forget your name! In 2020, he became a favorite resident of Lakeland Manor Assisted Living Facility, where he continued to spread humor. Bob was quite a character!

He was preceded in death by his father, Edwin Lewandowski, and his aunt, Wanda Livingston. He is survived by his beloved cousin, Judi (Jim) Orlowski of Livonia, MI, and his local team of loving caregivers and friends.
