SONTAG, Robert Michael Of Dedham, entered into rest on January 9, 2021 at the age of 79. Beloved companion of the late Avis (Goldstein) Stiller. Loving and devoted father of Jodi O'Keefe and her partner Sean O'Leary of Foxboro and Kristi Slavin and her husband Brian of Brookline. Dear stepfather of Scot Stiller and his wife Kim of Upton and Dawn Stiller of Stoughton. Cherished Papa of Kasey, Kylie and Matthew O'Keefe; Paige and Brynn Stiller; and Waylon, Easton, Nash and Harlo Slavin. Robert is also survived by close cousins Leslie and Richard Saltzberg, Stephen Freedman and partner Carol Sneider, and Karen Sontag. Bob was a well-respected salesman working in the printing and publishing industry, but was forced to give up the career he loved due to his health. He dutifully served as President of the YMHA Alumni Association since it was founded in 1975. Most of all, Bob cherished his time with friends and family and was always there to help with whatever people needed him for. Bob loved watching sports, whether it be professional or his grandkids' various activities and enjoyed spending summer days at the beach. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011, or online at Stanetsky Memorial Chapel

We will miss Bob dearly. Marv and I will always treasure the times that we shared together, both good and difficult, the laughter, and the devoted friendship that you and Avis shared with us.
