  • "Dear Mrs. Sandy Wantz, and family. We are very sorry for your loss. I and my husband were privileged to have been able to share time with Bob, as well as many laughs. He was a DEAR friend to my daddy,"Al Witt". He will be missed, but never forgotten for his smiles and his special talents. My prayers are with you and your family. GOD BLESS, LOUANN WIITT MILLER"

  • "Bob, you surely will be missed. I became acquainted with you when you were assistant principal at Williamsport Junior-Senior High School. I was a new teacher at the school in 1968."

  • "My sincere sympathy to Sandy and her family. We just had dinner with Mr. Wantz on September 16th at the Williamsport Legion celebrating the class of 1962 class reunion. He was a wonderful teacher and a very nice man. He began his biology teaching career with the class of 1961 at Williamsport High School. He will be greatly missed."

  • "Mr Wantz sat across the table from me at our 1962 Williamsport High School 55th Class Reunion one week ago last evening at the American Legion, Post 202, in Williamsport. We had such a great time during the meal, speaking about events from 55+ years ago as well as contemporary events in our lives. He thanked me for mentioning him during my invocation, saying, "I don't remember that ever happening in public before"... I am so very grateful for the influence Mr Wantz had on my life. May Our Lord God grant him forever rewards, and comfort Sandy and Family..."

  • "I was raised on Fairfax Road and was a neighbor of Mr. Wantz. Though I have not lived in Hagerstown for decades and had not seen him and Mrs. Wantz in several years, they greeted me warmly when I knocked on their door to pay an unscheduled visit one morning a few years ago. We had a good chat and Mr. Wantz showed me many of his beautiful watercolor paintings. He would not let me leave without taking a painting with me! Mr. Wantz was a fine, warm, easy-going, talented man and a great neighbor. My thoughts are with Mrs. Wantz and Suzie. James (Jay) Snyder Jr."

  • "Dear Sandy, I just read about Bob's death in the Sunday paper. I was shaken since I just talked with Bob at Darlene's birthday party. We always enjoyed chatting about various sports teams, particularly Maryland and the Red Skins. I always looked forward to that conversation. Sandy, my heart goes out to you since I know what it feels like to lose a spouse of 50 years plus. Thank heavens for my friends who were very supportive during this difficult time. You will also experience this since there are so many people who love you. You have been such a wonderful friend to everyone. With love, Nicholas "

  • "I want to express my sincere sympathy to Sandy Wantz and her family. I did not know Robert well, but he worked with my dad, Resley Schnebly at Williamsport High School. Dad would always talk about Robert and how much he enjoyed working with him. Always remember the good times, they will help you get through. I hope my dad and him are up in heaven having fun talking along with all the others that have passed. Take care, you are in my prayers."

  • "I am very sad with many tears at the loss of my art mentor since 7th grade (back in the early 70's). "Bob" Robert Wantz was my middle school vice principal when he got me started in watercolors telling me I had a special talent for it. To this day at 59 yrs old, Watercolors is my favorite medium. As an adult I took many water color classes from him. Besides being a great mentor, teacher, he was a kind & funny man with outstanding talents in watercolors. Nearly every bank I've been in has one of his paintings hanging. I will miss the man & his talent. Eternal rest grant unto him , O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him, May he rest in peace. Paint the other side of the rainbow Bob like only you can. OX"

  • ""Alfonso-Wantzo" - a silly expression that Bob invented for himself. Another was "You know too much." Somehow those expressions would come out in every conversation that we had. We worked together at the Central Office of the Washington County Board of Education from the Instructional Television days (1960's) until year 2000 when I retired. Bob was one of my favorite friendships. Yes, Bob is a very superior artist and a super friend. This world will miss Alfonso-Wantzo" and so will I."
