Robert “Bob” Woehrmyer now calls Mason home, but he has lived, worked in sales and donated with Community Blood Center all around the Dayton area and in Richmond, Indiana. His “Donor for Life” journey took him to the Dayton CBC Donor Center Friday, Nov. 30 to make his milestone 100th lifetime donation.
“I started donating at the company I worked for,” said Bob. That was Micro Devices, where Bob worked in manufacturing sales and marketing form 1969 to 1983. “I started the annual donation (blood drive), where the van would come around. The company is no longer there.”
Bob worked for six different companies, marketing all types of manufactured products. He retired from Hoffco Comet in Richmond, where he would commute from the Miami Valley and often donated at the former Richmond CBC Donor Center.
Bob has three children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild. His two daughters live out of state, and he moved to Mason to be closer to his son. He retired in 2005 and likes to stay busy. “I play a lot of golf and a lot of bridge,” he said.
He also stays committed to donating. “I’ve been very bless with good health to start with,” said Bob. “I just feel it’s a good thing to do.”
