2024

Joseph Robert “Uncle Bob” Tenorio, Sr., 85, of Hobart, passed away peacefully at his home on May 27, 2024. Born on November 22, 1938, to John and Violet (nee Cameron) Tenorio in Gary, he was a lifelong resident of Lake County.
A Hobart High School alumnus, Class of 1957, Joseph answered the call to serve his nation in the Army shortly after graduation, where he served with distinction from 1957 to 1959. Upon returning to civilian life, Joseph embarked on a lengthy career at the Ford Motor Stamping Plant. After 33 years of dedicated service, he retired as a respected member of the UAW Union.
Joseph’s passions included golfing, fishing and playing poker. He was also a devoted fan of the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears, standing by his favorite teams through thick and thin. He was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in New Chicago and the American Legion Post 454 in New Chicago.
He is cherished in memory by his loving children: Rita (Mark) Duvall, Tina (Dave) Werblo, and Bob (Cindy) Tenorio, Jr.; his siblings: Karen Szwedo and John “Babe” (Cathy) Tenorio; his adored 13 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and many dear friends.
Preceding Joseph in death were his parents; his beloved sisters: Juanita Allison and Mary Lou Tenorio; and his dearly missed wife of 52 years, Linda Sue (Collins) Tenorio.

Rita,Tina and Bob
In this time there are no words to ease the pain of your loss. I just want you all to know that I am blessed with beautiful memories of your dad and mom. They always made me feel welcomed and through the years I have/and will cherish the memories of the laughs and times we shared and take comfort in knowing they are together again. We had a running joke he started many years ago to which I say good journey – you are home and till I see you again I miss my “Buddha”
