Robert “Bob” Liskey, born to father Harry O. Liskey and mother Vada Lineweaver on September 3, 1929, has passed away on December 31st, 2022 at the age of 93. Residing in Staunton, VA for most of his life, he and his wife Barbara moved to Williamsburg, VA in 2011 to be closer to their daughter and grandsons. As a watchmaker/jeweler for 48 years, he was well versed in the finer things in life but anyone who knew him knew he was a kind and humble man. He loved deeply and was best known for his quick-witted humor, fierce determination, and generous spirit. A Jack of all trades, you could find him most days fixing something, tinkering with tools in the garage or enjoying the peacefulness of bird-watching.
He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years Barbara Liskey, daughter Melanie Showalter, grandsons Bryan (Karmen) Showalter, Justin (Cindy) Showalter, and great-grandsons Austin and Carter Showalter. Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother Harry O. Liskey Jr.
A memorial service will be held on Monday January 9, 2023 at 3:30pm at Nelsen Funeral Home in Williamsburg.
