Robert George Arcand died June 21, 2018 after a courageous battle with melanoma.
Bob was born in Boston, MA on December 11, 1945, the son of the late Harriett G. (Brown) Arcand and the late Edgar J. Arcand. He was a resident of Exeter, New Hampshire for several years and has previously resided in Beverly, MA and Brookline, MA.

He was employed at Signal Technology, a division of Crane Co, in Beverly, MA as a Cost Accountant and retired after 35 years at the company. Bob had previously worked at Raytheon in West Andover, Converse in Wilmington, and Alpha Industries in Woburn.
Bob loved the outdoors and enjoyed hiking, skiing and nature photography.
He is survived by his beloved daughter, Holly, grandchild Madeleine, sister Yvonne Arcand, brothers Edgar and James, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Bob was predeceased by one brother, Richard.
It was his wish that no services be held but a private service will be held for his immediate family and close friends.
Should family and friends choose, memorial donations in his memory can be made to your local Hospice or specifically to Care Dimensions Hospice who took exceptional care of Bob during his final weeks.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
