John B. Robotto, May 1, 1923- November 7, 2021, US Navy Veteran WWII.
Today is a day of happiness and sorrow, of saying goodbye, god speed.
Wife: Doris (Perkins) Married 50 years. Children: Lynne Pigeon, John Robotto (Sheree), Kathryn Davis (Lou). Holly Nieto (Solomon), Rebecca Barberich (John). Grandchildren: Alana, Justin, Christopher, Brandon, Tyler, Sarah (Kevin), Zac (Danielle), Luke (Maria). Great-Grandchildren: Jon Cole, Christopher, Abigail, Brady, Dominic, and Kailani.
It is not important how many places we have been to or what he has done: John's Floor Covering, square dancing, Nascar, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and camping. More important is the following:
You were a fabulous husband, father, grandfather, and friend. You have always been there, watching over us through good times and bad, laughter and tears. Never a complaint, never a fuss. You have been honest and true, trusting and fair. Always willing to share, to help. You made us smile. You had a joke. You listened. You were unique, one of a kind. A true gift from God. Now it is time for you to travel on a new journey. Even though we will be apart your spirit will remain in our hearts. We will miss you.
Services for John will be held Saturday November 13, 2021, at 9AM at St. Bridget Church 80 Main St. Manchester, CT, burial will follow at Hillstown Cemetery on Hillstown Rd. in Manchester.
