Robert "Bob" William Sloan, 70, of Indianapolis, passed away on Friday, July 13, 2018.

Bob was born on Friday, February 13, 1948 in Indianapolis, IN to Kenneth and Polly (Baker) Sloan.  After obtaining an Associates Degree he went on to become an Truck Driver and an EMT.  An unfortunate accident ended his EMT career but allowed him to find his true calling, writing.  Bob was a magnificent story teller.  He enjoyed making people laugh and connecting with them, and his writing was how he did that.  He used his stubbornness, natural curiosity, and love for his fellow man to become an Independent Investigative Journalist.  He fought against corrupt organizations like ALEC and the Koch brothers.  He was a huge advocate for reform of the prison labor, changing the system to get prisoners better treatment and rights.  He helped many people with legal paperwork and what they needed for appeals.  He was a phenomenal person who dedicated his whole life to helping others.

 When he wasn't out saving the world, Bob's favorite thing in the world was spending time with his family.  He had so much love to give, and he gladly gave it out freely.  He was a great cook, and his baby back ribs were the crown jewel of his recipes.   He was the best father, and the greatest grandfather and great-grandfather anyone could ask for.  He always made time for family.  He was also a talented artist with painting being his medium of choice.  He was a once-in-a-lifetime person who will be sorely missed.

Bob is survived by his beloved wife, Jean Sloan; his children Lisa (Dwayne) Adkins and Sam (Brenda) Allard; his grandchildren Desirie Jones, Aaron Brantley, and Dawn Allard; his great-grandchildren Chloe Mason, Justin Hill, and Noah Hill; his sister Roberta Fleischman; his niece Michelle Thompson; and many extended family and devoted friends.

Bob is preceded in passing by his parents Kenneth and Polly Sloan.

A Memorial Service for Bob will be 4 PM, Friday, July 20, 2018 at Fountain Square Cremations & Funeral Services.  Friends and family are invited to gather from 2 PM until the hour of service.
