Dr. Edgardo R. Lob, M.D., of Greenville, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on March 31st, 2021, at the age of 62.
Edgardo Rodolfo Lob was born on October 7th, 1958 in Lomas De Zamora, Argentina to Edgardo Marcelo Lob and Olga Anais Matijevic. His brother, Sergio, would later be born in 1960. When Ed was just 2 years old, his father relocated his family to Queens, NY so that he could give his wife and new sons a better life.
They would eventually settle on Long Island, NY where Ed would mostly grow up. Ed was a driven person from an early age and sought to learn as much as he could about the world – taking much interest in history, science, and culture. His drive to learn and compassionate nature led
him to pursue medical school at SUNY Stony Brook University, where he would complete his training in internal medicine and oncology.
Ed met the love of his life, Renata, while in pre-med and they would later go on to get married in 1984. Out of their love for one another, two sons - Daniel and Marcelo, would follow in 1988 and 1991. After graduating from medical school, Ed relocated his family to Greenville, PA where he would spend his career helping those around him fight cancer. Ed was known for his personable and caring manner and enjoyed working with his patients and fellow coworkers. He was in practice until he was forced to retire early due to his own battle with cancer. In his free time, Ed enjoyed traveling with his family, reading comic books, learning new languages, watching lectures, and stargazing with his telescope.
Ed is survived by his wife Renata, sons Daniel and Marcelo, Brother Sergio and his wife Andrea, and nephew Nico. He was proceeded in death by his parents Ed and Olga. He was a loving father, husband, friend, and physician and will be greatly missed by those who knew him.
All services will be private and held at the convenience of the family.
