Robert Allen Waltz Jr., 40, beloved husband, father, son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, friend and coach, raised in Painesville, Ohio, and Cape Coral, resided in Lehigh Acres for 10 years, died suddenly, and went to be with the Lord Aug. 9, 2012.

He was born on March 22, 1972, in Painesville, Ohio. He was an avid sports fan who loved baseball, football, racing and poker. He could always be found speeding on the race track, watching, playing or coaching a sport; however, the biggest joy of his life was spending time with his wife, kids and family. He had the heart and spirit of a child, took pride in coaching Cape Coral American Little League Baseball and was active in many youth organizations.

He was a surgical scrub tech and a salesman in Florida for a large part of his life. He will be greatly missed by all of his fellow co-workers and friends he met along the way. He had so much love to give and was friends with everyone he met. His presence will leave an imprint on countless souls.
