HUDSON - Robert Lloyd Briechle , 78, of Hudson, Ohio passed away peacefully on February 24th, 2019.

He was a contrarian with a penchant for music, literature, trains, constant shenanigans, clever banter, and random acts of kindness who never lost his sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Ann (Critchell) Briechle; his brother, George Briechle, of Ft. Myers, Florida; his sister, Marion Yonce, of White Stone, Virginia; 4 children and their spouses - Karen (Art) Hernandez; Erika (Paul) Arens; Kendra Briechle (Marvin Greenberg); Scott (Sara) Briechle; and 8 grandchildren - Cody, Ileana, Ellie, Hayden, Ben, Harrison, Evelyn and Zach - all of whom have, due to his influence, a predisposition toward breaking out in dance, skipping down sidewalks, building new friendships anywhere, and making funny faces at the camera.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, please practice random acts of kindness in his honor or donate to the Alzheimer’s Association - Greater East Ohio Area Chapter, 70 West Streetsboro St., Suite 201, Hudson, OH 44236. Arrangements by Johnson-Romito Funeral Home, Hudson, OH. (HH, 03/03/19)
