Our Family

Robert S. Waid

Supervisor of Robert W. Waid Funeral Home, Inc.

Robb, the eldest son of Bob and Janet Waid, is a fourth generation funeral director, who actually grew up in the apartment above the funeral home.  Excelling in academics, Robb graduated from Meadville Area Senior High School, where he enjoyed performing in the Marching Band.  The year following high school graduation, Robb, was fortunate to receive a scholarship from Rotary International, to be an exchange student in Germany.  After his year abroad, Robb returned to the States to begin his college education.  The College of Wooster, in Wooster, Ohio, is where Robb graduated with a degree in economics.  He did an internship with a CPA firm outside of Chicago, and was offered his first full time job there.  While Robb enjoyed his work at the firm, he soon realized his passion for helping others in need.  Moving back to Pennsylvania, Robb enrolled in Pittsburgh's Institute of Mortuary Science.  During mortuary school, Robb worked for the Wolfe Memorial Funeral Home in Pittsburgh.

In 1992 Robb returned to Meadville, to work with his father, at the Robert W. Waid Funeral Home.  Robb enjoys listening to jazz music, watching performances of Drum and Bugle Corps, wood working, and playing racquetball.  Robb is a member of Stone United Methodist Church, Rotary Club of Meadville, and serves on the board of Wesbury United Methodist Community.  Robb and his wife, Valerie, reside in Meadville, with their son, Max.

Todd, the second son of Bob and Janet Waid, is also a fourth generation funeral director.  Growing up a few years behind Robb, he learned about funerals at an early age.  Todd graduated from Meadville Area Senior High School, where he enjoyed participating in Football, Baseball, and the Championship Bulldog Basketball Team of 1987.  Receiving a Rotary International scholarship, Todd spent the year after high school as an exchange student in Brazil.   Todd also graduated from The College of Wooster, with a degree in economics.  After college graduation, Todd worked for Putnam Mutual Funds in Boston, MA.  And much like his older brother, Todd felt the calling to serve others in need.  Todd graduated from Pittsburgh's Institute of Mortuary Science and returned to work with his Dad and Brother in 1996.
