May 25, 2006

Robert Charles Roesler, whose career in circulation for The Sun spanned four decades, died of coronary artery disease Friday at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air. The Forest Hill resident was 68.

Mr. Roesler was born and raised in Hamilton and attended Polytechnic Institute. He enlisted in the Army in 1957, where he earned his General Educational Development diploma.

In 1962, he took a job in street sales delivering The Evening Sun and The Sunday Sun. From 1985 until his retirement in 2004, he was an independent contractor delivering The Sun to Towson-area convenience stores and fast-food restaurants.

Mr. Roesler was a crossword puzzle fan and enjoyed playing golf.

"He had played at many famous courses, some of which included St. Andrews in Scotland, Pinehurst and Pebble Beach," said his wife of 23 years, the former Jane Stegner, a retired Sun administrative assistant.

During the winter, he liked traveling to Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

He was a member of the Glen Burnie Moose, Towson Elks and American Legion Post 39 in Harford County.

Services are private.

Also surviving are a son, Charles W. Roesler of White Hall; two daughters, Lisa M. Rutkowski and Elizabeth Cullum, both of Bel Air; a sister, Mary Stevens of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.
