Robert Gresh

October 17, 1936 ~ October 30, 2018 (age 82)

Bob began his life October 17, 1936 on a large dairy farm in western Pennsylvania. No stranger to hard work, he farmed alongside his family for many years. Later in life, he moved to Cape Cod where he drove truck for various companies.

Bob was a truly wonderful man who derived pleasure from the simple things life had to offer. Bob was an avid outdoorsman, having started as a young man in the 4-H club, future farmers of America and continuing a lifelong enjoyment of hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. Bob was happiest at his home in NH, driving his four wheeler through the mountains and whistling while cutting the lawn on his John Deere.

Alongside his first wife Jackie, he raised three beautiful girls, Amy Tessier, Marjorie Polk & Denise Marsjanik, all of PA.

Bob joined his family in Heaven, unexpectedly on October 30, 2018.

He leaves his wife Carol (Cristofori), step children Rebecca Bumpus and her husband David & Brett Strassel and his wife Amy, sister Liz Gresh, ten grandchildren, three great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and his beloved Border Collie Shelley Rose.

Bob was pre-deceased by his parents John and Anna, as well as his brothers Mike, John, Leonard and Tom. Bob & Carol were so blessed to have enjoyed many happy years traveling & sharing many, many happy memories with their blended families & friends.

Fly away sweet Bob, you will be missed.
