The Obituary of Robert T. Routt

After a long battle with cancer, Robert T. Routt went home to be with his Lord

and Savior on Thursday, March 2, 2017. He was a devoted husband, father, and

grandfather. If there is one word to sum up Robert’s life—its commitment! Whether it

was commitment to his family, job, or even his community—anyone who ever came in

contact with Robert Routt understood his level of commitment.

At an early age, Robert demonstrated his commitment to education by

graduating at the top of his class at Urbana High. Afterward, Robert worked his way

through school as an undergraduate at Anderson College where he majored in Sociology

and minored in psychology. He then went on to obtain his Masters Degree in Social

Work at the Ohio State University. It was during this period that Robert also served in

the United States Army where he worked as a social work specialist.

Next, Robert spent time working at Lebanon Correctional Institution as a social

worker before moving to Cincinnati where he spent the next 25 years at Memorial

Community Center—23 as the agency’s Executive Director. As the Executive Director,

Robert oversaw day care, senior, and youth programs while working with Cincinnati city

council and other public officials to improve the police community relations. He would

also tackle other issues that affected the underprivileged of the city.

Although Robert was very committed to his work at Memorial, he always had

time to deal with family and friends in need. Many that knew him, would not miss an

opportunity to thank him or tell others of their stories on how he helped or changed

their life for the better. Robert leaves behind his adoring wife of 55 years, Opal Irene,

two children, Robert (Carol) and Randall (Pam), and three grandchildren: Ryan, Marcus

and Morgan.
