Obituary

A. Robert “Bob” Tindall, 93, also known to his family and those who loved him as “Pop-Pop,” passed peacefully in the company of his family at his home in Ewing on Monday evening, November 16, 2020.

A lifelong resident of the Hamilton and Ewing area, Bob was a World War II Navy veteran, a skilled ballroom dancer, and an avid storyteller. He never arrived anywhere without a smile and never ate a dessert he did not like, although he was partial to ice-cream.

In 1944, at the age of 17, Bob enlisted in the U.S. Navy to assist in the effort during World War II. He served as a minesweeper aboard the U.S.S. Jubilant in the Pacific. In 1950, he married Ultima A. DeLellis, with whom he fell in love with while he worked as a “soda jerk” at the local soda counter near Hamilton Ave. According to family legend, Ultima would save and store coins in her shoe so that she had an excuse to visit Bob at the soda counter. Together they had three beloved children: Patricia, Barbara, and Robert, who survive them today.

Bob worked for many years as a superintendent for the local 68 Iron Workers’ union. He was tenacious and hardworking; he achieved success with everything he tried from home improvements and gardening to managing workers on skyscrapers and bridges and developing a real estate and insurance business. He even earned a third-degree black belt in Karate. He was also a talented ballroom dancer, and a patient dance partner and teacher. He continued to impress the crowds at every wedding and event well into his 90s. Bob had a wonderful sense of humor and a number of magic tricks up his sleeve-- to the delight of his grandchildren, who to this day cannot figure out how he managed any of them. An enthusiastic storyteller, Bob could recount stories from his various adventures with perfect and vivid detail even much later in life. And at 93, he was still able to recall his grade-school Spanish – which his great-grandchildren will always remember as having been excellent.

Despite his many accomplishments, Bob was a humble man who never bragged. He was respected by friends and co-workers. He was deeply devoted to his family and is mourned greatly by his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, in whose lives he played a central and constant role.

Son of the late Amos H. Tindall and Florence A. Bittner, he is survived by his son Robert B. Tindall of Robbinsville, daughter Patricia D. Tindall of Bedminster, and daughter Barbara Tindall Vahlsing and son-in-law Frederick H. Vahlsing of Princeton. He also leaves four grandchildren, Candace Marie and Marissa Ann Vahlsing, Russell Allan Caterinicchio, and Neo G. Tindall; three great-grandchildren Mia and Russell Caterinicchio, and Mateo Patricio Zambrano Vahlsing; and sister, Florence Clemens, of Tennessee. He also leaves behind his partner, Pam Levin, of Westampton.

Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life on Monday, November 23rd at the Parkside Brenna-Cellini Funeral Home, 1584 Parkside Ave., Ewing. Calling Hours will be held from 10 -11 am, immediately followed by interment at St. Mary's Chapel Mausoleum, 1200 Cedar Ln., Trenton.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center at https://giving.mskcc.org.
