Robert Allen Arment Jr.
November 17, 1961 – August 8, 2018
Robert “Bob” Allen Arment Jr.
Born November 17, 1961 in Springfield, MA to Robert and Carole Arment Sr. He served 23 years in the U.S Army where he met and married his wife, Cathleen Campbell. He served one tour of duty in Desert Shield/ Desert Strom during his military career. Upon retiring from service he received his Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the University of Phoenix. He worked for Troxell Communication for 17 years in accounting and customer service.
He was a loving father to Tabitha Marie, Sabrina Anne, and Joshua Aaron Arment. He was a very proud, loving and highly involved Grandpa/Papa to Alexis Breanne Armemt-Lopez and Chloe Jade Arment. He was an avid bowler, a lover of card games (pinochle, cribbage, and euchre), computer and board games (even if we think he cheated at them), and puzzles of any kind. He had an endless amount of knowledge, useless and otherwise. He had a true “dad” sense of humor (corny like his dance moves but they made you laugh). He most enjoyed staying at home to spend quality time with his family.
He honestly was respected and loved by everyone for his fair, non-judgemental advice, his selfless personality and his huge heart. To know Bob was to love him. His absence will be felt and he will truly be missed by all. We love you, Robert!

Bob was a true friend and my Troxell right hand man.
I will never forget his kind heart and hearty laugh.
Rest in Peace my dear friend.

Like Josh Collins, I worked with Bob over the past 3 years. Josh interacted with Bob much more than I, but I still spoke with him regularly and traded emails constantly. Bob is exactly a year and one day older than me so I will always remember him as I approach my own birthday. He made such and impact on not only me, but all those he worked with in our business world. He was nothing but a consummate professional, and carried a positive "can do" attitude into everything he touched. As Josh eluded to, even when he was working from home or in the hospital you would never know it by the work he put in. I never even had a hint of any health issues or the fact that he was on oxygen until I met him finally, face to face, at our annual sales conference. He just didn't talk about it nor did he want to burden others, but rather lived to be of service. Of all the souls I've touch in my life his was the most genuine, caring and loving. He talked of family and friends often and the love and joy all brought to him. He often commented about how blessed he was to be surrounded by such wonderful friends and family. No Bob, we were all blessed and our lives made better for knowing you! He will remain one of the most inspirational people I have ever met and will be dearly missed...both from a business standpoint and a friendship one. What we have lost, Heaven has gained and I'm sure it will run much smoother with him there. Thank you for your friendship Bob! It meant more to me than you will ever know!

Bob was a rock that I relied upon everyday. He was my customer service rep at Troxell/Summit for the last three years, but much more than that he was a friend and an asset to my life. I had the pleasure of speaking with him everyday on the phone. Over the last 12 years in the A/V Industry I have rarely come upon an individual who had so much drive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people he worked with. Not once did I hear Bob complain about his condition, he took was he was given in stride and was an source of inspiration every time I talked to him on the phone. I would often forget that he was on oxygen and working from home because he solved issues so quickly, effectively and without complaint. Recently his dog bit through his oxygen tube and he casually let me know he had to get off the phone, like it was no big deal. He always had my back, even when he was in the hospital I would hear from him. With all that being said, what impacted me the most about Bob was his love for his family and do everything in his power to do what he could for them, even while attached to a tank of oxygen. We discussed our Father's Day this past June and his joy, his treasure, was a card from his Granddaughter. He explained that her Dad was not in her life and that she wrote him a sweet card stating that she wished she had a Dad like Bob. Of all the things we discussed over the years this one act from his Granddaughter meant more to him than anything else. As Bob put it, "It melted my heart."
Thank you Bob for all you gave. I will miss our laughs and our talks. You might have physically left this plain of existence, but what you gave and who you were lives on in the hearts that you touched.

I remember the family photo we all had with our parents as well as your brothers and aunts and uncles... we didnt talk much Bob, but I'll miss you.
Cathy, I'm here for you if you need anything and I'm so sorry for your loss.
