Robert G. Arcand

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. Bob graduated from Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody, MA with the Class of 1965. Bob received an associate’s degree from North Shore Community College and a BSBA from Suffolk University in 1971.

Bob had enlisted in the US Army Reserve for six years in the 331st General Hospital Unit out of Lawrence, 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.

    Dear Holly and all the Arcands,
    We are so very sorry for your great loss. Holly, you and your family lived a few doors away, just up the street. Whenever your Dad drove by and it was a lot, he aways waved, always smiled and when he stopped had something positive to say. He was so very special. And you are,too,Holly.
    Many, many prayers and much love,Toby and Stella-Mae Seamans and all the Seamans

    Bob was a great guy, and I worked with him for many years at Varian Associates in Beverly, MA. His kind nature will be missed.

    My deepest condolences. Bobby, Dave, Kevin, and I spent our high school summers walking the railroad tracks in Beverly Farms to snorkel in a quiet cove and enjoy the companionship of teenage youth. I deeply regret letting our friendship lax until I just had a sentimental moment watching a sunset on the ocean and recalled our great times together. So sorry I didn’t attempt to make contact with Bobby a few years ago. Hope you all have special memories of Bobby as I have.

    It’s hard to fathom that my dear brother Bob has been gone 5 years. Sadly missed and always in our hearts and thoughts. A thoroughly good person and a champion of those most needing a boost and assist.
