Robert Taylor Obituary

Uxbridge – Robert G. Taylor, 96, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, February 25, 2024 at Blackstone Valley Nursing and Rehab. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 67 years, Patty L. “Pat” (Jones) Taylor in 2016.

Bob is survived by 2 sons, Richard  G. Taylor and his wife Kathleen of Milford, MA and Jeffrey H. Taylor and his wife Georganne of Seabrook, NH; son-in-law, Robert Laflamme of Whitinsville;  7 grandchildren, Michael Alden of Whitinsville, Stacey Coffin of Westboro, Robert Taylor of Hudson, Steven Taylor of Arlington, Olivia Taylor of Burlington, VT, Luna Taylor of Boston, and Jeffrey Laflamme of Uxbridge; 9 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his daughter, Carol L. Laflamme and brother Richard “Dick” Taylor.

Bob was born in Oakland, CA on September 4, 1927 to John G. and Ella M. (Hukill) Taylor and grew up in the Camas-Washougal Washington area. Bob proudly served in the U.S Navy during WWII. After his service, he reunited and married the love of his life, Pat in December of 1949. Bob attended the University of Washington in Seattle, while working part-time for the Boeing Corp. and graduated in 1958. 

He worked as an Electrical Engineer and hydro-electric specialist for R.W. Beck Co. for over 40 years, retiring as a Managing Partner in 1995. Bob and Pat lived in Seattle and raised their family there until 1967 when they moved to Framingham after his firm transferred him to open a new office in Boston. 

Bob and Pat had a home on the Cape for over 30 years and permanently moved there after he retired. They also spent winters at their house near Orlando FL. In 2013, they moved to Uxbridge to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Bob and Pat were active church members over the years.  Bob was a member of the Cornerstone Church in Uxbridge.

Bob enjoyed traveling, boating, golf, scrapbooking with family photos, and camping.  He was a great carpenter and handyman, skillfully building or repairing anything in any of the family's homes.  He also loved to video every moment of holidays and trips. 

Bob was devoted to his family and faith, and proudly served his country. He will be remembered for his storytelling, prayers, and epic toasts at family and community gatherings of all sizes, and for his ability to listen, hold a hand, and offer unconditional love and support to those in need. All balanced with a sense of humor and wit, exhibited through an endearing raised eyebrow and gentle chuckle, so you knew he was in on the joke. He was one of a kind, a perfect gentleman, full of grace, honor, respect, dignity, and a depth of character that resonates through the generations of the family he and Pat shaped, enduring to this day.

His funeral will be held on Saturday,  March 9th with a Service at 10 a.m. in the Cornerstone Church, 6 Hartford Ave East., Uxbridge.  Burial will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery. Calling hours at Tancrell-Jackman Funeral Home, 35 Snowling Rd., Uxbridge are Friday March 8th  from 4 –6 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Bob’s memory be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 480 Pleasant St., Watertown, MA  02472.To leave a condolence message for his family, please visit www.jackmanfuneralhomes.com
