ELWELL, Robert L. 78, of N. Falmouth, MA and Naples, FL died on Tuesday April 12 at his home in Naples after battling cancer for 14 years. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 53 years, Priscilla Kaupp Elwell. The couple met in high school in Milton, MA and were married several years later on October 6, 1962. They moved to Falmouth, MA in 1974. He is also survived by three beautiful daughters, Pamela Joanne McDermott and her fiance Dennis Corr, Pennie Lyn Mead and her husband James, and Candace Diane Garcia and her husband Armando. As sick as he was, he would light up with renewed life when he saw his four adored grandchildren; Julianna, Amanda, Dillon and Marin. He is also survived by his brother Richard Charles Elwell and his wife Brenda, along with nieces and nephews. He worked as a compositor at the Boston Globe for over 40 years. He was also a member of the Milton Lodge AF and AM. He loved old cars, trains, trolleys and was an avid follower of politics. He enjoyed working in his garden but he especially enjoyed family time swimming, sailing and power boating on the Cape when the children were young. He loved living near the ocean. His battle with cancer was very trying but he never lost courage and stayed optimistic throughout the whole journey. He was always cheerful, appreciative and had a great sense of humor right until the very end. He was a great husband, father and grandfather and will be missed greatly. Funeral services will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be sent to www.naplesfuneralhome.com. In lieu of flowers donations can be send to the .
