Robert B. Lakeman

Merritt Island,FL

Bob Lakeman left us on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 to join his parents, Frank and Eleanor, twin brother, Richard, and baby sister, Phyllis. He was born 08/18/1934 in McGraw, NY, graduated from high school there, and joined the USAF during the Korean War era. After a varied career he graduated with degree in drafting and retired as a design draftsman from the Harris Corp.

Bob was a man of many interests including a general ham radio license, fly fishing, camping, blue grass music, civil war buff and several collections of historical memorabilia.

He will be remembered by his wife of 55 years, Elly; two sons, two daughters, six grandsons, two granddaughters, two step-granddaughters, three great- granddaughters, his brother, Frank, his sister, Fay, and several nieces and nephews.

As he wished, his family will privately celebrate his life. Interment will be at the veterans cemetery in Florida at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local humane society. We hope you will share his memory his full obituary at
