Robert William Carsillo, 76 of Lexington died suddenly Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at home.

He was born Sept. 19, 1941, in Trevose Pa., the son of the late Helen Matilda Carsillo and Vincent John Carsillo.

He was preceded in death by his brother Vincent “Bud” Carsillo.

He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Deborah Carsillo; his daughters, Sherri Yilmaz and husband Jim Lewis; Carol Legge and husband Gary; granddaughter Taylor Yilmaz; and his faithful dogs, Bart and Jack. He is also survived by his brother Lawrence Carsillo (Mary); sisters Margaret (Peggy) Sedgwick and Louise Behe (Rick); many nieces, nephews and friends.

He spent most of his life in Parkland, PA raising his family. He was a great provider and the memories of the summer vacations in Wildwood and Christmas morning will always be cherished.  In younger years he won multiple trophies for playing football with the Bensalem Owls, Minor league baseball and bowling on a league.

He retired from US Steel and Verits at 62 before moving to Lexington 13 years ago. He still managed to work at a local machine shop for “spending money” as he called it. He was a member of the Blue Ridge Shooters club and an avid hunter and fly fisherman. He was a diehard Eagles fan and loyal Phillies fan.

Services will be private. Memorial contributions can be made directly to his widow or through the GoFundMe page to help with the extensive medical bills at https://www.gofundme.com/robert-carsillo-memorial-fund
