Born in Summit, Robert was a lifelong Union resident. He worked as a tool & dye maker for General Motors in Linden for many years, and most recently for United Airlines in Newark until his retirement in 2020. Robert was an avid model railroader and drag racing enthusiast. He could fix just about anything- be it trains, planes or cars!
The son of the late Harry and Helen (Kurdyla) Bogda, Robert was the beloved husband of 42 years to Theresa J. (nee Finnigan) Bogda; loving father of Patricia Bogda (John) and Christopher Bogda, dear brother of Harry Bogda (Dorothy) and Mark Bogda (Carolyn). He is also survived by several loving nieces and nephews.
