He will be greatly missed by “Papa’s Princess” Jordan; and his grandson, Zachary of Bradley; Lori Anne, Eddie, Steven, Amanda and Ian of Connecticut; his cat, Simon; and dear friend, Paul Beaudoin of Brewer. In addition to his mother, Bob was predeceased by his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Thomas and Enid Lambert.
