Robert Gilman Bob Dickie, 78 years old, of Plymouth, died peacefully Wednesday, April 16, 2014, at the McCarthy Care Center in Sandwich, after a brief and courageous battle against widespread cancer. Born in Weymouth, March 4, 1936, Bob attended the Hunt Elementary School and was a 1953 graduate of Weymouth High School. Bob and his loving wife of over 54 years Theresa Ann (Botelho) Dickie made Plymouth their home following graduation from Bridgewater State Teachers College in 1957, and their marriage on July 11, 1959. Bob proudly served in both the Yankee Division and the NIKE Anti-Missile Battalion of the Massachusetts National Guard, protecting the inhabitants of the North and South Shore areas. Bob was a consummate educator, employed by the town of Plymouth for 38 years; first as an elementary school teacher at Hedge School and Nathaniel Morton, then as principal of Mount Pleasant, Cold Spring, and Indian Brook Elementary schools. Toward the end of his career, Bob returned to Nathaniel Morton as a fifth grade teacher. A member of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, Bob even shared his love of teaching with inmates at the Plymouth County House of Correction. Upon retirement in 1997, Bob became an avid golfer, and enjoyed the years as a member and published writer for Sandwichs Civil War Roundtable. He was also a parishioner and eucharistic minister at the Church of St. Peter in Plymouth, and a member of the Plymouth Democratic Town Committee. In addition to his wife Theresa, Bob is survived by his daughter, Jennifer A. Cook and her husband David of Whitman; and son, Kenneth Dickie of Winston-Salem, N.C. He leaves two grandsons, Jason N. and Alexander P. Cook. He was the son of Alexander I. and Barbara (Loud) Dickie of Weymouth.
