Tribute & Message From The Family

Robert "Bob" Quinn, 74, of North Granby set sail for the open seas from Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford on Tuesday, March 29, with his family by his side. Bob was born on April 16, 1941 in Brooklyn, NY, the youngest child of George and Mary (Knudsen) Quinn. As a boy, he was a loving brother and son and a devoted altar server. He especially enjoyed spending time at the beach. His love of the ocean only grew, and so in early adulthood, he proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy. Upon his honorable discharge from the Navy, he worked for AT&T for over 38 years, providing a wonderful life for his wife and children. He married Agnes (Behilo) on September 12, 1964, and recently celebrated over 51 years of marriage. He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved big brother Tommy, his brother-in-law Al and 2 infant granddaughters. Remembering him with great love are his wife Aggie and his 5 children and their spouses: Carol & Kevin Toomey, Robert & Patricia Quinn, Lisa & John Bradley, Paul & Marie Quinn and Daniel & Jennifer Quinn. He is greatly missed by his sister Patricia Passalacqua, his sister Trudy Fendler and her husband Frank, his sister-in-law Anne Quinn, and his many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. He leaves a legacy with his 12 living grandchildren; Micaela and Mack Toomey, John, Edward, Patrick and Charles Quinn, Nathaniel and Lucas Bradley, and Emily, Joseph, Caroline and Anneliese Quinn, who will always remember him as Pop Pop and Grandpa. They will carry many fond memories of him in their hearts forever. The family would like to thank the following for their support and help during Bob's illness: St. Gabriel Church in Windsor, St. Francis Cancer Center and Hospital, and especially Dr. Rathman and Nurse Kim for their kindness and gentle support throughout his final earthly journey. Calling hours will be held at Carmon Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Avenue, Windsor on Friday, April 1 from 4 to 7 pm.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I (and my wife at the time, Vicki) met Bob and Agnes around 1984 at St. Therese Church in Granby, CT after services in the church hall. They were such fine folks and we shared a lot together as friends. Bob was a good Christian man and hard worker. He had a great sense of humor and was always helping people and the church. We had many dinners and church events together and very much enjoyed having them as our friends (Vicki and Agnes were BFF's). When Vicki past away in 2004, it was Agnes and Bob that comforted my two daughters still living in the area, as I lived in Florida. I'll never forget their kindness and love for our 3 daughters. R.I.P. traveled the narrow road in life here on earth and are now enjoying the eternal road with our Heavenly Father...Your friend in the name of Christ....Keith

Aggie and family am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bob for many years at AT&T as part of the HIG Team. I have fond memories of those days and of Bob. He was a wonderful person and I feel privileged to have known him.

On behalf of President/Chief Administrator David Eustis and the entire Northwest Catholic High School community, I offer my very deepest sympathy on the passing of Robert Quinn.

Because his children, Carol Quinn Toomey '83, Robert Quinn '85, Lisa Quinn Bradley '87, Paul Quinn '89 and Daniel Quinn '91, are treasured members of the NWC community, we feel that Robert was, too, and we mourn his loss along with all who love him.

Please know that we will remember Robert and the Quinn family in a special way during our daily prayers this week and will pray for Robert at our next school-wide Mass. We are so very sorry for your loss.

~ Kimberly Spera, Director of Communications, Northwest Catholic High School

When I took the new AT&T Hartford assignment I was fortunate to have Bob as my mentor and even luckier to become friends with him and his wonderful family. We worked through the frustrations of the job and managed to have lots of good times and lots of laughs both inside and outside of work. Needless to say the things I learned from Bob helped me throughout my years at AT&T. Some of the best days spent with him outside were our Saturday pheasant hunting trips with his three boys. I hope the boys remember them as fondly as I do. Being the sailor he was, he tried to teach me to sail his boat. Epic fail. He tried to convince me that the Yankees were better than the Red Sox. We swapped vegetable garden tips. And I got to hear stories of his children growing up. Always hearing in his voice and seeing in his eyes how nothing in this world was more important to him than his family. He was devoted to Aggie and his children. If AT&T had a harder working, more loyal, dedicated, dependable employee than Bob, I never saw that person. He had a wide range of knowledge, the utmost integrity and thoroughness in everything he did. But that was the way his life was. It's selfish of me to say I wish he were still here because I know where he is. I proud to say Bob was my mentor AND my friend.
