He was the beloved husband of Elsie (Bonnie) (Rowell) Webber for over 61 years. Loving father

great-grandsons: Lucas, Nathan, Riley, Parker, Clinton, and Weston, and many nieces and
nephews.

He is predeceased by his first wife Barbara (Guildford), his brother John Kenneth (Ken) Webber,
and his parents, John and Georgie (Washburn) Webber.

Robert was born in Somerville, MA on August 4, 1935. His parents lived in Somerville, then
Everett, before settling in Rockland, MA where he attended school. When he was twelve years
old, he had a large paper route. Robert served in the U.S. Navy from 1953-1957 working in the
boiler room of the USS Fulton, a submarine tender, out of New London, CT. After his active
years of service, he worked for a company that further developed the Plymouth Municipal
Airport. Robert worked for several] companies including Washburn Tire, CE Hall & Sons’
Trucking, Mansfield Tire, and Webber Electric Services. Robert took great pride in his family,
his home, and his vehicles. For a few years he was a member of the Elks’ Lodge in North
Attleboro. He enjoyed being on a North Attleboro bowling league, fishing, including ice fishing,
gardening, camping, and tinkering. He had a natural ability to fix things. In his retirement he
enjoyed building puzzles and using technology. His mind never dulled and was always crisp and
intelligent.

A private celebration of life will be held in his honor later.

    As long as I can remember, Bob has been there. I’ll never forget that how well he treated me as a child, it has meant a lot to me throughout my life. Like many of his children and grandchildren, I marveled at all of the things he could fix, build and do. He was someone that I had a lot of admiration for. Hard worker, good Father, Grandfather and a wonderful Husband.
    Sending you all my love at this time.

    I will miss Uncle Bob terribly. He and Aunt Bonnie have been a big part of my family and life for so long. So glad I got to see him this past July. Love you Uncle Bob! Thank you for welcoming me into the family when I came in at 4 years old after being adopted and getting to feel the joy of having extended family. Will miss you. Rest well.

    Dear Bonnie and family: We had the privilege of being your neighbors for many years and enjoying the friendships of both you and Bob. He was always friendly, kind… a man of few words who made “every word count”. He will be missed by many. The loving relationship you shared with him was humbling…you were a couple totally devoted to each other.
    Know that we send our heartfelt prayers and sympathy to you, Bonnie, and your children. ♥️
