Robert "Bob" Bryan

January 9, 1947July 16, 2020

HYANNIS- Robert Bryan, aka “Bob", 73, of Cape Cod died unexpectedly at Cape Cod Hospital on July 16th.

Robert was known for service. He served his country in the Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller in Vietnam. Subsequent to that, he later retired from Cape Cod Hospital after 25 years of service. His greatest service however, was to the Lord, as Robert was a trustee and a dedicated member of Zion Union Church in Hyannis.

Robert was also an active man who loved to ride his Harley Davidson bike, was a Masonic Brother at Prince Hall Masonic Lodge, and loved to travel and create memories with his beloved family.

Robert is survived by his wife Manila, of 47 years; his three daughters, Jem of California, Matia of Delaware, and Sonsarrae of Pennsylvania; his siblings, Michael of Texas Kelii of Rhode Island, and Bobby of California; his grandson Nathan of Cape Cod; and last but certainly not least, “Papa’s best girl”, his grandbaby Mila Bryan.

A viewing will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at Doane, Beal & Ames, 160 W. Main St., Hyannis. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.doanebealameshyannis.com

Robert will be greatly missed, but our fond memories of him will last a lifetime.

Bob, I must say that it was not only my honor but a great pleasure to have worked with you for many years in the EC Registration. We had so many laughs through good times and bad. I used to kid you about those “instant loser tickets” because you always won something and I didn’t. You will be missed my friend. RIP

There was no one who was more kind and caring than Bob. He groomed Bernie and Mortie thru their entire lives with love and gentleness. They both loved him, as we did. When he saw
that I had come into the hospital in the emergency room he came to see me while he was working and when I was admitted, he came to visit and see if I needed anything. Both David and I respected this special man..... he will be deeply missed.
