Robert P. Gustafson Obituary

Robert Paul Gustafson, 34, of Andover passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday May 18, 2014 after a long battle with addiction. Robert was born at Manchester Memorial Hospital February 6, 1980 first son of Carol and Paul Gustafson. He attended RHAM High School and went on to Institute of Audio Research in NYC. He loved music it ran his soul and was true his passion. He always wanted to believe in the good of people and life in general. He was a man of his word. Always ready and willing to learn something new. Robert's niece Adriana was the joy of his world. He made everyone around him feel like the most important person in the world, but was faulted by not being able to do so for himself. He is survived by his mother Carol Gustafson of Andover; his sister Ashley Gustafson of Rocky Hill; his niece Adriana and nephew Anthoni. Grandmothers Barbara Gustafson of Ormond Beach, FL; Elaine Champlin of Ellington, CT. Many aunts and uncles. Robert was predeceased by his father Paul Gustafson; grandfathers Arthur Gustafson and Merrill Champlin. He had a special place in his heart for his lifelong friends Gary, Gennaro and the entire Clark family. Compassion over judgement is how he would have liked everyone to see him. Because each person that has fallen victim to addiction was once someone to somebody. Memorial calling hours will be Thursday, May 22, from 5pm-8pm at Holmes Funeral Home, 400 Main Street, Manchester, CT In lieu of flowers, to help fight addiction memorial donations may be made in his honor to Shatterproof 101 Merritt 7 Corporate Park, 1st Floor, Norwalk, CT 06851.
