SummitHill’s Buehler Passes

Robert (Bob) Buehler

Fullerton, CA — 1997 Candy Hall of Fame inductee and vice-president of brokerage SummitHill Sales & Marketing, Inc. Robert (Bob) Buehler passed away suddenly on October 6 at the age of 79.

A fixture in the confectionery industry, Buehler’s family notes: “We can honestly say that in the 50 plus years of being in the industry, he thoroughly loved what he did every day.”

Raised in California, Buehler served in the U.S. Army after high school and upon his discharge began his career in the confectionery industry.

“It didn’t matter if you were a competitive broker or manufacturer, a long-time colleague or newbie to our industry, if you were lucky enough to know or be around Bob, you had a friend for life,” says one of his SummitHill colleagues. “We were blessed to have him not only to help start and guide SummitHill Sales & Marketing over the years, but for the friendship, mentorship and love that he brought to each of our daily lives.”

He is survived by his wife Linda, six children, four sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law, seven grandchildren, one great grandson, and his brother. One grandson preceded him in death.
