Robert William Densmore of East Dennis, formerly a resident of Quincy and Warwick, R.I., passed away at the age of 76, August 27, 2014, in Hyannis. Bob was born in Boston, September 29, 1937. He was raised in Quincy by his parents, Edward A. Densmore and Grace Burns Densmore, along with his older brother Edward A. Densmore Jr. and younger brother Michael P. Densmore. After graduating from North Quincy High School in 1955, Bob enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a paratrooper in the Armored Airborne receiving the rank of Specialist, Third Class.

On October 14, 1961, Bob married Linda A. Smith, also of Quincy. Together they raised three children, Michele A. Densmore, Karen A. Densmore, and Michael R. Densmore. Bobs greatest loves and joys in life were first and foremost his family, his career, Boston College, the Red Sox, billiards, card games, and anything to do with the city of Boston. His dislike for New York was just as palpable (he was a true Bostonian). Mr. Densmore is survived by his beloved and loyal wife, Linda A. Densmore; his eldest daughter, Michele Densmore Beamon, her husband Gary R. Beamon, and their three children, Alix, Shelby and Tay. Mr. Densmores second born daughter, Karen A.

Densmore and his wife Flo Densmore and his two children, John, Christine; his sister-in-law, Mary Hewitt Densmore and her four children, Eddie, Kevin, Brian, Kathie; sister-in-law, Paula Barton, her husband Brad Barton and Paulas four children, Rob, Stacy, Keri, David; brother-in-law, William P. Smith, his wife Jane Doyle Smith and their two children, Michelle, Jenny; along with a plethora of great-nieces and great-nephews. Robert William Densmore was known for and will forever be remembered for his love for his family, appreciation for the small things in life, faith, vitality, courage, fortitude, thoughtfulness, being a true gentleman, having a heart of a lion, and being one in a billion. The ever-lasting impression of Bobs wisdom was expressed with just a look and a minimal number of poignant words.
