AUBURN—Robert “Bob” Meservier died Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Clover Manor with his family by his side. Born in Lewiston, Maine on January 16, 1931, Bob was the first-born child of seven children of Alphondore and Hubertha (Rivard) Meservier. He attended Holy Cross School in Lewiston and served in the U.S. Army, stationed at the Stuttgart Army Base in Germany. He was a cook during the early 1950’s and a proud veteran of the Korean War. On July 9, 1955, Bob married the love of his life, the former Anita Pelletier, who predeceased him in 2006. Bob worked as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service for over 20 years. He took great pride in being part of the communities he served, both in Burbank, California and Auburn, Maine. While a resident of Blake Street Towers in Lewiston, Bob made many lifelong friends, and served on the housing council for several years. In this role, he had the opportunity to travel, attend conferences, and advocate for the residents he represented. Bob was also an avid member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 106, for many years. Bob cared deeply for people. He and his wife spent many years volunteering for Meals on Wheels, helping others who were less fortunate. His compassion and dedication were evident in the many events he organized and the innumerable meals he cooked for the tenants of Blake Street Towers. When he wasn’t cooking, Bob could often be found running Bingo, reading a good book, playing cards, or entertaining people with song. Throughout his life, Bob made people happy. Bringing a smile to someone’s face was his greatest joy, and it’s why he loved music so passionately. Bob sang as part of his church choir and many local choirs, including the Magic Pops, and most recently, the “Just Us” Entertainers. In these ensembles, Bob made many close friends and enjoyed sharing his music with family. Bob is survived by his two daughters,and her husband, Daniel of Lewiston, and Linda Wing of Sabattus. He is also survived by his grandchildren and their spouses: Kate Robichaud, and husband, Curtis, of Auburn; Emma St. Germain of Auburn; Jonathan Wing, and wife, Kelsey, of Turner; Jeremy Gervais, and wife, Lindsey, of Vernon, Connecticut; and Ryan Gervais, and girlfriend, Abby Rines, of Auburn. Bob leaves behind many great-grandchildren, including Wesley, Edison, Allister, Orion, Ford, Costello, Owen, Finley, and Elliot. Bob is survived by his two sisters-in-law, Doris Meservier of Lewiston, and Sue Meservier of Oregon. He will also be missed by his godchild, Nicholas Meservier, as well as his many nieces, nephews, and cousins, whom he loved dearly. In addition to his wife Anita, Bob was predeceased by a daughter, Constance, as well as his siblings, Charles “Leo” Meservier, Joan Terry, Shirley Meservier, Jean “Paul” Meservier, Yvette Meservier, and Richard Meservier. He was also predeceased by his son-in-law, John Wing, and his brother-in-law, Thomas Terry.

The family extends their appreciation to the wonderful and caring staff at Clover Manor. Bob will be sorely missed by his family and friends—“I’ll be seeing you in all the old familiar places, that this heart of mine embraces, all day through...”

Oh Bob!! You will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you. I have many fond memories of you, your laugh always brought a smile to my face, and when you would sing a song, just to get me to smile....you were amazing. There was that one time, you told them "no, no go get that girl with the headband, she knows how to do it." Fly high with the angels and rest easy. Love-Your Clover Peach :)

Uncle Bob,
You were such a great man. No matter what was happening in life, you were always there with a smile. You bring back so many great memories for me for when I was growing up. You also had so many great stories of such a fantastic life. There were so many laughs when you were together with your brothers. I can just imagine the good times you all having in heaven now that you are all together again. Give my love to Dad and your brothers and sisters.

Love Tim

Oh Daddy.....although my heart is broken I know that you’ve waited so long to be with Mom. I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood. I was “daddy’s girl”.....a tomboy....the son you never had. I think back to playing softball. You made every game even when you sprained your ankle and and had to hobble across the field. At one game you were asked to leave the batting cage area because you would hang back there and encourage me when I was at bat. I cherish the memory of doing groceries together on Thursday nights. You would teach me German words on the ride to and from the store. We worked together at Bingo....you would call and I would work in the snack area. When we went to Bear Pond to swim, I would attach myself to you because I was afraid of standing in the muck. Thank you for these cherished memories and so much more. I know you’re at peace but I’ll miss you calling me “Bebe” and having a piece of juicy fruit gum at the ready for me when I picked you up. It’s time for you to rest now Daddy. I love you 💕
