He was born in Coral Gables, FL on March 6, 1956, the son of John Harry and Margaret Marie (Albrecht) Baucom. Bob was an United States Navy Veteran (1975-1979).

He was an avid fisherman, enjoyed riding his motorcycle, sailing, and hiking. Additionally, Bob demonstrated a kind heart to all animals.

Family meant everything to Bob. He was a very special 'Uncle Bob', grandfather 'Bob', and godfather. Family and friends will miss Bob terribly each and every day. He is predeceased by his father, Harry Baucom and a favorite pet dog, Bella. Surviving family members include his wife, Karen Benedict, her daughter, Erin Burke and husband Matthew of Milton, MA and Karen's son, David Benedict and wife Sarah of Conway, MA; Bob's mother, Margaret Baucom of Lake Placid, FL; a sister, Ann-Maree Barnes and husband Jack of Lake Placid, FL; a brother, Harry Alfred Baucom and wife Lynn of Yukon, OK; nephews and nieces, Nick Barnes and wife Claudia, Ryan Barnes and wife Sheena, Megan Bartlett and husband Travis, and Kimberly Baucom; four grandchildren, Emily, Ryan, Elise, and Cora; and, grandnephews and grandnieces, Easton, Addelyn, Bryn, Lincoln, and Isla.

I have fond memories of motorcycle trips with Bob and Jack. On one trip in Maine, it was nearly 100 degrees, and we were all parched. We looked over to see Bob drinking from a bottle of ice water, and he had enough for all of us. That´s the kind of person he was.

Bob was my brother-in-law and we often kidded one another about issues with in-laws. Joking aside, Bob was as close to me as my own brother. We did a lot sailing and motorcycling together. I will miss Bob, his smile, and his company.
