Robert Warren Wise, age 67, of Kalamazoo, MI entered this life a few minutes before his twin on November 9, 1949 and passed peacefully from it on September 12, 2017 after a brief stay at Bronson Hospital. A lifelong resident of Kalamazoo, Bob was preceded in death by his father, Benjamin Warren Wise and his mother, Irene Freda Preuss Wise. He is survived by two older sisters, Margaret (Ron) Sayen and Mary (Jerry) TerBeck and his twin, Carol (Fred) Anderson. He also leaves behind four loving nieces and nephews: Matthew, Leigh Ann, Jeffrey and Laura as well as a step-nephew, Jason. Always an enthusiastic learner, Bob attended University High School and graduated from Central High. He was a frequent visitor to local libraries and an active internet user as he pursued knowledge in a wide variety of fields. Bob had an interest in using and promoting organic food and was committed to having a low impact on the environment. Independent and reflective, Bob loved animals and the peacefulness he found in nature. In accordance with Bob's wishes, only immediate family will participate in memorial services. He asked that no flowers or donations mark his passing, but hoped all who shared some part of his life would pause to reflect on the beauty of all life and nature. Bob will be interred with his parents in Mountain Home Cemetery, Kalamazoo.
