LYMAN - Robert E. Provost, 86, of Lyman and Edgewater, Fla., passed away peacefully on the morning of April 19, 2012, at the Halifax Health Hospice care center of Edgewater, Fla., after a short battle with cancer.

He was born in Manchester on Oct. 19, 1925. He joined the U.S. Navy and was a World War II veteran. After retiring from the Manchester Fire Department, Bob had the best of both worlds, spending the summer in Lyman and the winter "snow-birding" in Edgewater, Fla.

He enjoyed the great outdoors, walking his dog Rocky, fishing, kayaking, gardening, playing cribbage and sitting on the porch reading. Oh, and let's not forget his love of eating maple walnut ice cream! He also enjoyed the Brannon Senior Center of NSB, Fla., as well as the Littleton area senior center.

He is survived by four children, son Richard B. Provost of Bedford and his companion, Jeannine Chasse; daughter Jeanne and her husband, James Gardner, of Edgewater, Fla.; daughter Patricia and her husband, Eric, Kerchen, of Boscawen; daughter, Jacqueline and her husband, Arnold "Bim", Corliss of Lyman; and three grandchildren, Brenna Provost, Celina Kerchen, and Jillian Shanks and her husband, Brennan. Robert was predeceased by his first wife, Jeannette Provost, and his second wife, Ann Provost.
