Robert L. Gillespie A Celebration of Life
11/12/1942 - 05/30/2018
If you needed the definition of a good heart and an example of a generous and loyal friend, you'd need look no further than Bob Gillespie of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, formerly of Enfield, Connecticut who passed away Wednesday, May 30, 2018. A celebration of Bob's life … a remembrance, a memorial service … however his friends might see it, will be held at the Springhill Suites Marriott Oceanfront Hotel in New Smyrna Beach on July 17 between 2:00 – 4:00 PM. Springhill Suites is located at 512 Flagler Ave in NSB. Bob's funeral was held June 6-7 in Connecticut where he spent most of his life, where most of his children and family still live, and where he worked as a master machinist for 47 years. He was buried there, a Navy veteran, with full military honors. Bob had many friends and acquaintances in NSB. He and his wife Molly wintered in NSB for several seasons before calling it their home for the past six years. In that short time, Bob established and grew a valued circle of new friends, a tribute to the charisma of being a genuine and gracious person. We invite his friends to join us in celebrating a unique and wonderful life. The celebration will be informal with light refreshments, a friendly gathering of those people whose lives were touched by Bob's. Come to the Springhill Suites Marriott on July 17 anytime between 2:00 and 4:00 PM to share a story about Bob, or just to honor him and listen as others share their stories.
