AGE: 58 • Wall
Robert S. Underhill, 58, of Wall, was born June 21, 1955 in Point Pleasant and passed at home on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013 after a brave and stoic 2 year battle with cancer. Bob grew up in Brielle, NJ and attended Manasquan High School then went on to receive his Criminal Justice degree from Northeastern University in Boston. From there he earned his Law Degree from Temple University in Philadelphia and went on to practice law for thirty years, spending the last 17 with the firm Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith and Davis in Woodbridge, NJ. Bob had many interests, all of which he put his heart and soul into. He was an Eagle Scout, avid sailor on the Manasquan River where he was the Commodore of the Manasquan River Yacht Club. He loved soccer whether participating or officiating or coaching his boys. Anything his sons Bobby, John and Patrick did, he was there to support them wholeheartedly, be it wrestling, soccer or music. His Sunday afternoons were always spent at U.J.'s garage cheering on his beloved Jets with the "boys." As a member of the Pipes and Drums of the Jersey Shore he performed regularly as the bass drummer and was a proud member of the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh Club. Music and beer were his passion and he was glad to share his expertise with anyone and everyone!
Whether you knew him as Goob, Dad, Pop, Bob, Uncle Goober or even as a casual friend, no one will ever forget him and he will be sorely missed. He is predeceased by his father, Henry Melvin Underhill Jr. He is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Mary Lou Ivins Underhill; his sons, Patrick, John, and Robert, his daughter-in-law, Maryanne Underhill who live in Brick with their children, Margaret and Charlotte; his mother, Matilda Robcke Underhill and mother-in-law, Joan Ivins; his brother and sister-in-law, Henry and Deborah Underhill; his sister, Nancy Richardson; his sister and brother-in-law, Sue and Jimmy Hindman, and his many nieces and nephews, cousins and his many friends.
