Robert (Bob) Deeley, 66, of Derwood, MD passed away Sunday night, July 2, 2017 at Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville, MD.  Born in Ithaca, NY, Bob graduated from Ithaca High School (1968) and Ithaca College (1973 – Business Administration), and studied Hotel Administration at Cornell University.

Bob loved golf, fishing and lacrosse.  One of his favorite sayings was, “Hospitality is my life.” He was always happy cooking for family and friends, with a fun story thrown in for good measure.  During his hotel development career, he worked for Laventhal & Horwath, spent 20 years at Marriott International (most recently as Regional VP of Development), worked at Thayer Lodging and ultimately formed Rock Creek Hospitality to develop and franchise Marriott hotels. 

Bob is survived by his wife, Carolyn, three daughters, Kate, Meredith and Lauren, two sisters, Nancy Morgan and Elaine Sweeney, father-in-law Richard Hubsch, sister-in-law Janet Winthrop, brother-in-law Derek Hubsch, and many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his parents, Frederick and Eleanor Deeley.  He will be missed by many. 

A visitation will be held Friday, July 7th from 6 to 8 PM at DeVol Funeral Home, 10 East Deer Park Drive, Gaithersburg, MD.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 8th at 2:00 PM at Mill Creek Parish Church, 7101 Horizon Terrace, Rockville, MD.  

Bob always loved a good story, so we also invite you to share your favorite Bob Stories and pictures at If anyone would like, donations can be made in Bob’s memory to Trout Unlimited:
