Robert Lee LeCompte, 94, died on September 20, 2022 at his residence in the Cincinnati, OH area. He was the father of southern Indiana residents Beth May and Leigh Anne Webb. Bob lived a full and rich life, enjoyed his hobbies, valued his family, and humbly followed his faith.
Bob dedicated his entire life to serving others. A graduate of Butler University, Bob chose the pharmaceutical field. He first served our country as a pharmacist’s mate in the US Naval Reserve during the Korean War. Later he managed pharmacies in large drugstores and worked in private practices.
Bob loved to compete in track and field. He enjoyed sailing dinghies or maneuvering pontoon boats. He cheered on the Butler Bulldogs and Cincinnati’s local athletic teams. But most often he was to be found on the tennis court. An avid player, Bob has won many competitive titles over the years, including a gold medal at the Senior Olympics.
Bob was a committed Christian and served his church in a variety of capacities over the years, including several as an elder. The elder must have “good reputation” and Bob certainly met that requirement well. People who knew him could be heard describing him as sincere, kind, loving, a true gentleman and a human sweetheart.
Before Bob died, his mother and father, his sister and brother, his beloved wife, Joyce (née Dehnbostel) LeCompte, of 62 years, and his grandson, Dean LeCompte.
Those he leaves behind will miss his kind words and gentle spirit. These include his sister-in-law Nancy Dehnbostel; his adult children Elizabeth (Tom) May, Leigh Anne (Tom) Webb, David (Leia) LeCompte and Scott (Nancy) LeCompte; his grandchildren Sarah Moreton, Stephanie Moreton, Rob May, Rachel May, Jennifer (Nick) Thomas, Scott (Emily) Burke, Katie Burke (her partner Skipp), Tessa (Skyler) Vittitoe, Brianna LeCompte (her partner Stephen), Zachary LeCompte , and Chris LeCompte. Bob also adored the 11 great-grandchildren he leaves behind.
The visitation will take place on Monday, September 26 at 10:00 am at Christ Lutheran Church, 3301 Compton Road, Cincinnati. The funeral service will follow at 11:00 a.m. The burial will be held later this afternoon at McCray Cemetery in Wilkinson, IN.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for memorial donations to the Berkely Square Retirement Village in Hamilton, OH Bob’s devoted and compassionate caregivers during his final months.
