SOUTH CASCO — Robert J. Morin, 69, passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2016, following complications from Parkinsonism.

Bob was born in Portland on June 13, 1947, to Reynold and Stacia Morin.

He attended local schools, and in 1966 he enlisted in the Navy, where he proudly served for four years, including two tours in Vietnam. He received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and a Bronze Star. While in the Navy, he met Judy, the love of his life, on a blind date. They were married in 1970 and began their life together in Buxton, where they built their first home and welcomed their first child. A few years later, they moved to South Casco, where they spent the next 40 years together and welcomed their second child. Bob was a man with many skills, but for his career he concentrated his talents building and repairing torque converters. He enjoyed spending time with his family, volunteering for the Casco Fire Department, at Casco Days, and local schools. When he was well, Bob enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and going to camp.

He was predeceased by his parents.

He leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Judy; his daughters, Tracy and Jen; his sisters, Linda, Earlene, Sandy, Kathy and Sherry; and brother Rick; many nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins and close friends.

Bob’s service will be held on Friday, July 8, at 4 p.m. at the Dolby Funeral Chapel, 434 River Road, Windham. A private burial will take place immediately following. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bob’s name to either the Casco Fire and Rescue Department, 635 Meadow Road, Casco, ME 04015, or Maine Parkinson’s Society, 359 Perry Road, Bangor, ME 04401.
