Some of his favorite pastimes: hanging out at Molasses Pond; skiing at Sugarloaf with Nancy and their boys; boat concerts on Cobbossee, 25 years of hunting camp with The Guys; Pats’ games (both in Foxboro and at home); finnan haddie on his birthday; cruising with the Yayas.

Bob leaves behind many friends and family members: his wife of 32 years, Nancy, and their three sons; Jake and partner Tina Bonsant (and soon to arrive, granddaughter, Julia Grace) of Windsor; Kyle and fiancée, Nikki Endre, and children, Riley and Regan of Lamoine; Sam and girlfriend, Kirsti Littlefield, of Ellsworth; and grandson, Tanner Seura of Ellsworth.
