Robert Lee Wiechen, 74, was born November 19, 1946 at Christ Hospital (Stormont-Vail) in Topeka, KS, to William and Lucille (Gorrell) Wiechen. He passed away Saturday, October 30, 2021, with family by his side.

After graduating from Topeka West High School in 1964, Robert began working at the Topeka VA Medical Center. There he met the love of his life, Diana Kamer. On June 1, 1973, the two wed, and were inseparable for nearly 48 years. Their love for each other is one that we all strive for and admire.

Robert was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, great uncle, and great-great uncle. Though to many, he was everything. He will forever be loved and missed. He is preceded in death by his wife Diana (Kamer) Wiechen, parents William and Lucille (Gorrell) Wiechen, and half-brother Richard Greenway.

Robert is survived by his sister Lynne (Wiechen) Iams of Soldier, KS; two sons Christopher Wiechen (Megan) and Andrew Wiechen (Casey Jo); and three grandchildren, Zaden, Lula, and Mikaela. All reside in Topeka.

To the nurses and caregivers at Interim HealthCare Hospice and Aldersgate Village Life Plan Community, on behalf of the family, thank you. We thank you all for the care, comfort, empathy, and compassion that you provided Robert during this difficult time.

Graveside service will be held at Mount Calvary Cemetery, 801 SW Westchester Rd, Topeka, KS on Saturday, November 6, at 11:00am.
