Robert Slobodan Djurovic, age 59 of Oakland Township, died Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Ascension Crittenton Hospital in Rochester Hills, Michigan. He was born August 17, 1958, son of Ana (nee; Vukelic) and the late Rodomir Djurovic.

Robert Djurovic was born in the capital city of Belgrade, Serbia on August 17, 1958. He immigrated to America with his parents and 5 year old sister, Romana from Paris. The family eventually settled in Detroit. Soon his youngest sister, Sonja was born. The family was now complete.

He always had a knack for talking and connecting with people (just like
his mother Ana and father Radomir), so it was only natural that he became head of his sales division leading people to success. Leading people was his destiny and, soon, so was meeting his beautiful and equally kind wife, Paula. Paula was the love of his life and quickly told his family that fact when he first met her. He cared for her child Melissa as if she was his own, and within time they had their son, Jonathan.

Jonathan was his pride and joy and Bob included him in everything he did,… traveling abroad and always being well loved and cared for. Bob took all of life's simple occurrences and turned them into teaching opportunities. Jonathan's lemonade stand wasn't just a lemonade stand... it was a freshly squeezed lemonade stand where people paid $6 for a glass.

Bob saw the good in everything and always helped people along the way with a kind word or deed. He naturally rose to success in his profession and always kept God in the center of it all. His mentor was Eddie Stingley, a christian pastor with whom he was very close from his teenage years until today. An immensely kind, considerate and loving son, brother, husband and father is his legacy. Surely he has a mansion in Heaven.

Robert Djurovic is one of a kind and we were fortunate to have him in our lives. His mother was his guiding light and his father, his hero. He is survived by his wife, Paula; son, Jonathan; daughter, Melissa (Kyle) Boeve; grandson, Abel; mother, Ana; sisters, Romana & Sonja (Gino) Buffa; cousins, Ankica and Mirko; and Uncle Misha and Aunt Dusha. He also leaves behind his best friend, Jimmy McBride and dear colleague, Bill Sullivan.

Visitation for Robert will be held Tuesday, August 14th from 3-9 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd) in Warren.

Funeral Services for Robert will be conducted on Wednesday at Bethesda Christian Church, 14000 Metropolitan Parkway in Sterling Heights. He will lie in state from 10:00 am until time of the service at 11:00 am.

Interment will take place at Eastlawn Cemetery, Lake Orion, Michigan on Orion Road at the corner of Stoney Creek Road.
