The Aston Township Board of Commissioners and the residents of the township are saddened to learn of the death of former 4th ward Commissioner Robert S. Willoughby.
Our condolences go out to Bob’s wife Jacque’, his daughters Wendy and Jodi, and son-in law, David.
Bob was appointed commissioner of the 4th ward in October 1999 when he filled the unexpired term of Commissioner Bill Welch. He was then elected and served as 4th ward commissioner until 2006.
Over the years, Bob served Aston Township in many capacities, including as a member of the Penn-Delco School Board, on the Aston Township Lions Club, where he was past president; the Aston Township Memorial Garden Fund Raising Committee; and most recently, as a member of the Township Zoning Hearing Board.
Bob played a key role in modernizing the concession stand, which bears his name, as well as rest room facilities at the Sun Valley High School athletic field.
He played an active role in the construction of the Aston Lions Club headquarters on Gamble Lane and continued his service with the organization until his passing.
In addition, Bob was an active member of the Delaware County Field and Stream Association.
Bob was a very kind man who gave back to the community in many ways. We are very grateful for his service and celebrate his life.

As executive director of marketing and communications at Neumann University, Aston resident Stephen Bell has been given the opportunity to meet, interview and work with very interesting individuals of diverse backgrounds.
But, he contends without hesitation that it is the people with whom he works day in and day out, that he finds to be the most interesting of all.
“I love that I work in higher education,” Bell said. “It is a very worthwhile and I have never once had second thoughts about the value of the services I’m promoting here at Neumann. The people with whom I work are simply the best of the best. My staff is dedicated and intelligent, and they have a great sense of humor. I could not ask for a better team.” Read more
