Robert E. Proto
June 3, 1935 – July 14, 2019
Robert E. Proto was born on June 3, 1935 and went to be with the Lord on July 14, 2019. Bob lived a vibrant life and despite battling a number of health issues in recent years, remained active and full of spirit until his last breath.
For many years, Bob owned a successful freight forwarding business, which he built from the ground up through hard work, true grit and determination. To those who were fortunate to know him, he was fiercely loyal, incredibly generous and always ready to lend a hand. Family meant everything to him and he was blessed with an amazing wife of 60 years, Caroline, three wonderful children – Suzanne, Robert and Steven and their spouses – Kevin, Carolyn and Nicolle, and five precious grandchildren – Justin, Karisa, Rylan, Samuel and Sole, and their spouses – Dorothy and soon to be spouses Carl and Christine.
He will be sorely missed but never forgotten. He leaves behind a strong and growing family, many friends and an encyclopedia of memories that will be cherished forever. May he rest in eternal peace.
