REAMY, Robert Neville, a native of Alexandria, Virginia, passed away peacefully at home in New Kent, Virginia, on May 3, 2021, at the age of 89.
Mr. Reamy was born August 13, 1931, in Alexandria, Virginia and was the son of the late Harvey Dale Reamy and Hazel Ale Reamy.
He served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years on submarines, two of which were the USS Triton and the USS Runner, achieving the rank of Master Chief before retiring in 1969 to Virginia Beach, where he lived and raised his family for 27 years. Later, he moved to Rocky Mount, N.C., where he worked for Consolidated Diesel Company until he retired in 1998. Since 2001, he has been a resident of New Kent, Va.
Some of the things Bob cherished the most were fishing, football and coffee. He was an avid Washington Redskins fan and enjoyed attending many of their games over the years. He spent countless hours in the yard bringing to life the many landscape designs of his talented wife of 61 years, Carol.
He is survived by his wife, Carol Reamy of New Kent; a son, Troy Reamy and wife, Angela, of Midlothian; daughters, Robin Thomas and Karen Reamy of Virginia Beach and Suzanne Reamy of Providence Forge; and five grandchildren.
He is also survived by two brothers, Kenneth Reamy and his wife, Gail, of Irving, Texas and Donald Reamy of Mechanicsville, Va.; and two sisters, Constance Dean and husband, Tom, of Bend, Ore. and Susan Ayub of Rowlett, Texas.
A private family graveside service will be held in the Veteran's Garden at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia.
