Robert Edward Bender

August 12, 1937 - April 13, 2017

Robert Edward Bender of Zionsville, passed away April 13, 2017. He had spent the past 10 winters in Bonita Springs, Florida.
A Celebration of Life will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, April 17, with visitation two hours prior at New Hope Christian Church, 5780 S. Main St., Whitestown.
Born in 1937 to the late Robert and Dorothy Bender of Zionsville, he graduated from Pike Township High School and attended Indiana University. He owned and operated Bender's Shell Service for almost 50 years in Indianapolis.
He is survived by his daughters Jayne (John) Shubat and Karen (Lon) Richmond, and son Brian (Rosa) Bender; five grandchildren, Nick (Laura) Worley, Bryce Worley, Alexandra Shubat, Brandon Bender and Cassandra Bender; five great-grandchildren; and his wife of almost 61 years, Delores Ann Summers Bender.
Bob was never happier than when he was behind the handlebars of a motorcycle, mowing the yard, talking with friends, houseboating on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee or visiting with family. He was always thinking about his next adventure.
