Uxbridge - Robert L. Brook, 56, of Uxbridge, MA passed away at home on Fri., Feb. 3, 2017 with his loving family by his side after a courageous battle with cancer.
     Bob is survived by his loving wife and soul mate of 28 years, Diane (McLaughlin) Brook, his beloved children, Jennifer L. Brook of Worcester, Robert D. Brook of Somerville and Matthew F. Brook of Uxbridge. He leaves behind a brother, 2 sisters and many beloved in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends. Bob was the son of the late Dr. David L. Brook and Raymondé (Coté) Brook.
     He grew up in Cranston, R.I. and was a graduate of WPI in Worcester where he earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Bob worked for Raytheon for the past 10 years upgrading missile defense systems all over the globe. He also worked for Perini, Honeywell, and APC. Bob had many passions including spending time with his family on Snow Pond in ME, taking great care of his cars, astronomy, trains, building and fixing things, traveling, boating, and kayaking.  He always had a smile on his face, a story to tell, and a project to conquer with a work ethic like no other. He was known for his relentless, positive “Can Do” attitude and had a gentle charisma that drew people to him. He always gave 100% and accomplished anything he set his mind to. He was a role model to many throughout his life and illness. Bob always felt he had a guardian angel with him in life. Our hopes and prayers are that his angel will be by his side in heaven. We will forever love and miss you Bob.

First, I'd like to indicate my sorrow at just hearing that Bob had passed and offer my condolences to his immediate and extended family. As an electromagnetic engineer at Raytheon/Sudbury I worked with Bob when he was with Perini/Framingham on several of our Radar site installations. When Bob transitioned to Raytheon I worked with him on several other radar installations with our last interaction related to the Cape Code radar system upgrade. I always enjoyed working with Bob and was amazed at his broad knowledge of information. He was always easy to work with and very industrious person who stayed focused to get the job done. I remember having some great conversations with him as we drove from Fairbanks, AK to another remote site during the winter when the temp's were minus 35 degree's F. It seemed that Bob really enjoyed the travel and perhaps the varied geographic locations. I will miss his positive attitude and broad knowledge base.

I had the opportunity and privilege of working with Bob at Perini/PMSI, and even though it was for a short time and so long ago, I never forgot about him. Bob was such a nice man and he always had a smile on his face especially when he talked about his family. I was so saddened to hear about Bob's passing. Wishing all of you comfort and peace.
