Robert Vern Addison, Sr., formerly of Davison and most recently Gaylord, passed away on November 9, 2020 at the age of 76.

Beloved husband of the late Kaye; loving father of the late Robert (the late Natalie Johnson) Addison, Jr., Elizabeth (Daniel Craig) Bullock, and Matthew (Harmony) Addison; proud 'papa' of the late Kara Lynn Danielle, Nicholas Addison, Mikeala (Andrew) Supulski, Jacqueline, Jordan, Josie, Morgan, and Hunter Addison; great-grandpa of Jaxson, Skylar, and Isla Marie; dear brother of the late Sandy Shepard and Mary Leik; dearest of friends Bob (the late Kathy) Gornicki.

Robert was a proud graduate of the University of Michigan, and retired from General Motors after 30 years of loyal service. He and Kaye moved to Gaylord in 1990 to open a Bed and Breakfast. Robert continued his residence in Gaylord until 2019. He was an avid mechanic, tinkering around in the garage and finding woodworking projects. Robert enjoyed hotrods, and motorcycles, but he found his greatest joy in his grandchildren.

Mary, Matt, Elizabeth and families - Please accept my condolences for your loss. It has been a terrible year in every way given the current health crisis and the loss of two family members. There is little I can say to lessen or even understand the pain of these losses. Please know that Barbara and I share the family's pain and hope for better days ahead. Because of the current health crisis, Barbara and I will not be attending the memorial service. We certainly hope that we can all be reunited in the future and share our best memories of our lost ones.
