Whitinsville- Robert Lee Alix, Sr., 67, passed away on Aug. 28, 2018 at UMass Memorial Hospital suddenly, and unexpectedly after being stricken ill. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, MaryBeth (Horan) Alix.
        He is also survived by a son Robert “Robbie” Jr. and his wife Laura of Lancaster, MA; 2 daughters, Stefanie Bullio and her husband Marc, Sr. of Northbridge, Holly Michniewicz and her husband Joshua of Brewster; his mother, Hattie V. (Ames) Alix of Whitinsville; several nieces and nephews, of whom he was very fond; and many great friends. He was the beloved grandfather of Harper, Piper, Marc Jr., and a grandson on the way. His grandchildren affectionately referred to him as “Bumpa.”
        Born in Whitinsville on April 2, 1951 he was the son of the late Arthur J. “Chico” Alix and lived his whole life in Whitinsville. He was a gold medal graduate of Northbridge High School class of 1969, and then continued his education attending the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy, where he graduated in 1974. He was a former Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, and worked for various pharmacies throughout the area over the years.

Bob has been working as a real estate broker for over 30 years, most recently for Jack Walker Realty.
        Bob was very active in the community as a trustee of Heritage Park, a corporator on the board of UniBank, and a member of the Knights of Columbus Mumford Council #365. He enjoyed playing cribbage with his friends, and was a devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather. He will be remembered as a great confidant to many, as he was always there to lend an ear and gave the best, unbiased advice. He was a man of great faith and a member of St. Patrick’s Church.
         His funeral will be held on Wed. Sept. 5 at 11am in St. Patrick’s Church, 1 Cross St., Whitinsville. Calling hours will be held at Jackman Funeral Home, 12 Spring St., Whitinsville on Tues.

We grew roots together as young boys and over the years our branches spread in many directions, but I always felt that the trunk of our bond would last forever. I will always remember with appreciation the many experiences we shared and time well spent (some not so well) as we matured. There has always been and forever will be a spot in my heart for my friend Chico.

Dear Mary Beth and family. I am so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Rob. Our paths crossed when we were just children and somehow continued through all these years. We just played golf and had dinner together at the KofC Outing a few weeks ago. A few drinks, a few laughs and lot's of smiles. I will never forget him. The early days, the High School years, the Karmann Ghia, and late nights at the Todd's. My prayer is that you and your family will eventually find some peace in knowing that he is with our Savior. All of our hearts are torn. Please reach out for anything that you may need.

Dear Mary Beth and Family,

It was with great sadness that we heard from Alan yesterday about Bob’s passing.

Our family has been acquainted with both the Alix and Horan families for many years. We last saw him as he was showing our home back in Whitinsville last month. Please accept our sincere sympathy over your loss to you all. We shall include Bob in our prayers this week. May God Bless his soul and may he rest in eternal peace. 🙏🙏
