Robert John Wranosky
February 4, 1937 – October 30, 2019
CHINA VILLAGE - On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Robert (Bob) J. Wranosky Sr, passed away in his home in China Village, Maine, surrounded by his family, at the age of 82 after a brief & courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin on February 4, 1937 to John and Joan “Eunice” Wranosky. He graduated Oconto Falls High School in 1955 and began working at Scott Paper Company. He served in the United States Army from 1957 to 1961. After being discharged from the Army, he returned to Scott Paper Company, later named Kimberly Clark, and worked for 46 years and he continued contract work until 2018.
Bob was an avid outdoorsman. He was never one that would sit around, always “putzing” with something whether it was cutting firewood, trimming his cedar hedges, or working on house projects. He was a do-it-yourselfer. During the summer, Bob loved riding his Sea-doo on China Lake and in the winter, you could see him riding his Ski-doo or swishing down slopes at Sunday River. Bob was well known around town for his bright red Dodge Ram truck with the Hemi written on the side.
He is survived by his wife of 31 years Marcia; two sons, Robert Wranosky Jr of Wheatfield, Indiana and Thomas (Dawn) Wranosky of Crown Point, New York; daughter Susan McConnell (Matt) of Tallahassee, Florida; stepdaughter Melissa Richardson of West Point, Virginia; sister, Catherine (Larry) Kolkowski of Sampson, Wisconsin; two brothers, Leonard (Diane) Wranosky of Columbiaville, Michigan and Francis (Debbie) Wranosky of Oconto Falls, Wisconsin; five grandchildren (Meghan Wranosky, Courtney Wranosky, Tyler Wranosky, Monica Black and Mark Black II); four great grandchildren; three grand -dogs, several nieces, nephews and cousins. He is preceded in death by his beloved dog Winston and his parents John and Eunice Wranosky.
Family will be receiving guests at Veilleux & Redington Funeral Home located at 8 Elm Street in Waterville, Maine on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 5 to 8 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 10 am on Thursday November 7, 2019 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Winslow, Maine.

They say it’s not where you go but who you meet along the way. It was an honor to know Bob. We will forever be grateful for the gifts he shared with us, family, friendship and love.

Sue, Tom, and Bobby...I'm so sorry for your loss. He was lucky to have lived such a full life, doing what he enjoyed for so long. Treasure all the memories. They will give you comfort, and eventually put a smile on your faces. He will always be your dad, and the love never goes away. You will always be my second family. Sue, you are more than my best friend. You are my sister, and I love you dearly.

Marcia, my deepest sympathy to you and the family. I had not seen Bob for a while but will always remember how Al and I first met him at Mc Donald’s.
