Bob Ehrenberg Obituary, Death – Clay Humane is experiencing a profound sense of loss after the departure of Bob Ehrenberg from our board of directors. Bob passed away without incident on May 20, 2023, but he left behind an extraordinary legacy of care and compassion for the people of our planet.
Bob was first elected to our board of directors in 1999, and since that time he has worked tirelessly to steer the Society toward achieving its primary goal of assisting the people and animals in his neighborhood. As a member of the board, one of his responsibilities was to engage the community. The Clay County Chamber of Commerce’s Finally Friday group was Bob’s preferred venue for carrying out this activity.
At such gatherings, he was able to discuss the many different programs and activities that the humane society had to offer, which led to him making a lot of acquaintances and connections. Because of his unwavering commitment and infectious excitement, he quickly became the group’s favorite member, and attending these gatherings quickly became the highlight of his Fridays. Anyone who knew Bob was fully aware of his deep love and dedication for his family as well as his pets, how much he cherished his mother, and the fact that he was an ardent and unwavering supporter of the Chicago Cubs.
Bob had his beginnings in Chicago but has been a resident of Orange Park since 1978. Bob’s early life was spent serving our country in the military with dignity and distinction. After some time, he transitioned into the field of data processing consulting and eventually founded a firm that specialized in computer assistance called D.P. Assistance. Bob Ehrenberg has always enjoyed having a dog by his side, so over the years, he and his wife have taken in countless rescued puppies from the Clay Humane Society.
Throughout the course of his life, Bob gave his time with as many local charitable organizations as his schedule would allow. We are already beginning to miss Bob’s upbeat demeanor and generous nature. As we express our sorrow and thanks for having had the opportunity to know Bob, we ask that you remember his wife Darleen, his two sons, and all of his grandkids in your thoughts and prayers. Go, Cubs Go!
