     Dr. Robert P. Bridenbaugh, 93, Martinsburg, passed away Wednesday evening, January 24, 2024, at Homewood at Martinsburg.

     He was born in rural Martinsburg, son of the late George Herbert and Gertrude R. (Miller) Bridenbaugh.  On August 23, 1958, he married Donna L. Sumner of Sharon, PA, and she preceded him in death on March 20, 2020 after 61 years of marriage.

     Surviving are two sons: Andrew S. Bridenbaugh (Kim) of Chantilly, VA and Benjamin P. Bridenbaugh (Amy) of Peoria, AZ; six grandchildren: Molly, Emily, Hannah Sumner, Paul, Garrett (Casey), and Delaney; a great-grandson, Landon Quick; and a nephew, Tim Sumner (Patty).

     He was preceded in death by three brothers: Nevin C., Edwin B., and George H. Bridenbaugh; and a sister, Mary Jane Hinish.

     Robert was a 1950 graduate of Morrisons Cove High School, Martinsburg.  In 1954 he received a Bachelor’s degree in Pre-Med from Juniata College, Huntingdon and in 1960 graduated from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. 

     He started his medical practice in 1963 in Martinsburg on Oakdale Road.  Robert later moved his office to the Cove Medical Center, located on Nason Drive in Roaring Spring. He officially retired in April of 2001 at the age of 70, missing only two days of work in 38 years of practicing medicine. 

     Robert was raised in the Memorial Church of the Brethren in Martinsburg and recently attended East Freedom Chapel. 

     Dr. Bridenbaugh loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.   He also enjoyed camping with his sons, deep sea fishing trips, reading and beekeeping.  Robert was also passionate about tennis and served on the board for the Cove Tennis Courts for many years.
