Robert J. H. "Bob" Dall

March 5, 1939 - June 24, 2021

Robert (Bob) J.H. Dall of Wheeling Island passed peacefully to Heaven on Thursday, June 24, 2021, at Acuity Specialty Hospital in Wheeling, WV.

Bob was born March 5, 1939, in old Wheeling Hospital (North Wheeling), and little did he know at the time, but he met the love of his life there, Donna (Huff) who was born there just five days later on March 10th and who would go on to become his loving, devoted wife of 61 years.

He spent his boyhood and adolescent years in Power, WV, and graduated from Wellsburg High School in 1957. He lived in the Ohio Valley his entire life and retired from Weirton Steel after 32 years.
Bob’s biggest joys in life included reading books of all genres, keeping up with the political landscape, classical music, and big band sounds. He was a proud member of the Lewis Wetzel Rifle and Pistol Club and the NRA. But nothing exceeded the love and pride he had for his family.

Bob and Donna were married in 1960 and have three children and nine grandchildren. Daughter Kelly (Alan Fish) of Warwood, (Alan, Colin, Elizabeth), daughter Leslie (Carl Santagati) of Myrtle Beach, (Robert and Lauren) and son Rob (Tricia) of Dublin, OH (Collin, Noah, Ryan and Caroline), and great-grandchild Vera.

Bob has one sister, Lana (Charlie Gilkey), three sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, (Maureen/Wayne Barte, Debbie/Dean Markle and Kathy/Bob Rohrig) all of the greater Wheeling area and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

He is preceded in death by his mother Adelaide (Goosman) Dall 1945, his father Robert and stepmother Gertrude and he will be laid to rest with them in Kadesh Chapel Cemetery in Beech Bottom, WV.

Family and friends will be received at Altmeyer Funeral Home (1400 Eoff Street-Wheeling) on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 from 4-7:00 pm. A funeral service will be held at Altmeyer Funeral Home on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 10:00 am and additional condolences can be left at

The Dall family extends their gratitude and appreciation to the caring, attentive staff at Acuity Specialty Hospital.
