Robert A. Doty, age 84, husband of the departed Irene A. Doty since 1953, of Orange MA passed away after a brief illness on Feb 8, 2019 in Boston MA. Robert was born April 25, 1934 in New Britain CT. He was employed by Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and retired in 1992. He was a veteran of the Korean War having served in the Air Force. He married Irene Korzeniecky and they made their home in Burlington CT. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather and would do anything for his family. He was a man of infinite skills and knowledge, and with a life fully lived he loved nothing more than spinning a tale to anyone who would listen. He was an accomplished carpenter, photographer, as well as a world traveler. There wasn’t a subject in existence he didn’t have a story or a cautionary tale for. His accomplishments, both big and small, will live on forever. He is survived by his three daughters Cynthia Arnold, husband Gino Arnold; Eleanor Brenner, wife Sherry Shippee; Robin Comeau, husband Richard Comeau, as well as his granddaughters Kelly Doty and Kristin Welch. He leaves behind his cherished partner Eleanor Plante. Calling hours will be Wednesday, Feb 13 2019, 4pm-7pm at New Britain Memorial.

My deepest sympathy to Mr. Doty’s family. I remember your Dad very well. He worked for my Dad, Ed Brusek, building homes in and around New Britain.
May he Rest In Peace.

There are no words to express the heartbreak Bryan and I feel. Bob was a man of dignity and strength. We cherish the time spent with Bob and our lives are so much richer for having known him.
