          Born in Cambridge, MA on Jan. 24, 1947 he was the son of Dr. Allan and Gertrude (Shannon) McCarthy and grew up in Arlington. He had been a resident of Whitinsville for 36 years and Uxbridge the past 8 years.

He also served in the U.S Army National Guard in the Milford area.

         Well loved, kind, and gentle, Rob liked car rides with no destination and often took his family on “mystery car rides” over the years. He enjoyed helping others and guiding those who needed help. He was a great role model and always kept in touch with family, friends, and former students. A fan of sweets, Rob knew where all the fudge and ice cream shops were in the area. He was family oriented, had a wonderful sense of humor, and liked listening to Irish music. He was a member of St. Patrick’s Church.
