Robert C. Gonio, age 83 years of Owings Mills, MD died at 10:31 am on Monday, July 13, 2020 at Symphony Manor Assisted Living, Baltimore. He was the husband of Virginia M. (Wenzel) Gonio and they observed their 61st. wedding anniversary on April 25, 2020.

Bob, as he was known to family and friends was born in Chicago, IL on December 7, 1936. He was the youngest of six children born to Grover Charles and Mary (Nolan) Gonio. Raised in Chicago, Bob graduated in 1955 and began his career in the accounting department of Western Electric, with whom he remained until 1973 when he transferred to Baltimore as an employee of AT&T. Remaining in the Baltimore area, Bob later worked for Lucent and retired as billing coordinator for Nokia in 1989, all job changes were a result of the telecommunications restructuring of the time.
