We are very sorry for your loss!
He was a great neighbor . If we were outside doing yard work ,he would always stop and chat on his way home. He would tell me who to call for street light repair and other city departments . He was friends with my dad, that’s how he knew us !
He will be missed!

We are sorry to hear that Bob is gone. We are next door up in Rangeley and would always know when he was there, because he would be having a conversation with the dog (Princess ??). We just loved that! Remember your Mom and Bob cross country skiing many years ago. We enjoyed his visits. We would always get some news. We have not been to Rangeley much lately. All of you please stay healthy and share the many stories you have about Bob.

We are so sorry to hear about Bob’s passing! We spent 15 years next door on Roslin and we adored Bob. He was always so friendly to our family. He loved to tell us about his camp and swap political stories with us. He often spoke about his love, Patricia, so it’s comforting to know they’re finally enjoying retirement together. God Bless & keep him, we’ll miss him.

Love, Brooks, Janet, Natalie & Brooklyn Beaudoin

I will miss Uncle Bob, we shared many visits. He was a good listener and shared many memories with me. Now, he is in God's heavenly garden with all his love ones, together they all share the peacefulness with their heavenly Father forever. My prayers are for all the Family and people he left behind. May they all feel the LORD'S peace during this time.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Bob Fontaine. I knew him as a soft-spoken person whom whenever you came in contact with him was a pleasant experience. He always had a smile to share and sincerity in whatever we spoke of. I interacted with Bob when he sold auto parts, and personally with an issue regarding insurance. Bob was one of the good guys. I am sure he will be missed. Bob, rest in peace.
