1947 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Jodka, Robert "Bob" of Lunenburg, formerly of Acton, passed away July 8th, 2014 at home, surrounded by his loving family. Born October 20, 1947, in Lawrence, the son of Gertrude (Harnedy) and the late Albin, he was raised in Ayer. Beloved husband of 46 years to Sarah (Tinker), the loving father of Aaron, Emily, and Libby, and dear grandfather of Ryann and Reese. Brother of Richard, his twin Sharon Carpenter, Thomas, and Jonathan. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. With a lifelong passion for theater and music, Bob participated in many local theater productions. From the star to the director, he could play any role. His multiple film credits include "School Ties" and "The Wayfarers," amongst others. His joy in the outdoors and nature could be clearly seen in his gardens, but he was just as comfortable inside, playing pool at The Pleasant Cafe. Bob's love of baseball was passed down to his three children, and he could be found enjoying many of their baseball and softball games. He will be greatly missed. Friends and family are invited to gather and share remembrances from 4-7 on July 12th. Please contact Acton Funeral Home at 978-263-5333 for details.
