Robert J. Maria age 33, of North Royalton, passed away on May 29, 2017. He was preceded in death by grandparents Julius and Florence Maria and Dan Baker.  Loving father of son Austin Thomas Maria, age 13, and daughter Kali Rose Ainger, age 6.  Survived by parents Robert and Joyce Maria; sisters Tara (Keith) Blake, and Jennifer Maria; grandmother Nora Baker, nieces Emily Kropp, nephews Edward Kropp, and Logan and Mason Blake.

Second to the love of his children, Rob enjoyed working in the field of Information Technology and was always willing to lend a hand with friends and family, keeping us all connected.  Realizing that his struggles were not his alone Rob created a web page “Take Christ not Drugs” to let others know that they are not alone in their fight to overcome addiction and to give them a network of support.  The ministry is still up and active with almost 1800 followers.

Services will be held at St. Therese Catholic Church, 5276 East 105th in Garfield Heights on Tuesday, June 6, at 10:00 am.  Rob’s final resting place will be at Hillcrest Memorial Park Cemetery in Bedford, Ohio.  A Celebration of Life Gathering is being planning and will be announced on Facebook.
