Bob Gervais was born on Thanksgiving Day, 1940 to, unfortunately, a cruel and selfish family. He tried his very best to enjoy his childhood, and in his teens, signed up for the NAVY-he finally found the escape he dreamt of. He matured into a hard working man, whose "call it as I see it" attitude and sense of humor became infamous. In early 1960, his first marriage brought a son who bore his name. In 1975, on a night out, he met his second wife-married the same year,he proudly bought a new house, and had two daughters. His son also became an important part of his daughters lives. He worked diligently as a Mechanic for Sweet Life and others. He was quite pleased to finally have what he always wanted: A HAPPY HOME. In 1979, a bad cough turned out to be something much worse as he was diagnosed with Lung Cancer and given only months. He chose Chemotherapy as a way to give him time; his youngest daughter was not even a year old. The next two years of treatment ravaged his body-however the strength he developed over the years helped him through. He spent his days reading with his four year old and nights watching his two year old sleep. In late May 1981, he reluctantly checked into the hospital. Sadly, he did not get to come home-He passed June 2, 1981. As much as it kills me that I did not get to spend my life with him, I know he has found the peace in death that he so wished for in life. I am forever grateful to my Mother, his Widow, who devoted seven years of her life showing him what it means to truly love someone.
Burial: Saint Brigid Cemetery Millbury Worcester County, Massachusetts
