ROBERT L. GIRARD
Bob was a past Grand Knight and Honorary Member of the Knights of Columbus Cardinal Mercier Council 2625. He volunteered much of his time over the years to many KofC causes such as Operation Wheelchair at Togus VA Hospital, Friday night BEANO, chair of the KofC Scholarship Committee and service to St. Anne's Catholic Church. Bob will be first and foremost remembered for his ability to fix anything, which he would selflessly do for anyone who needed his help. Whether it was an engine, an appliance, a toy or a tool, from carpentry to plumbing and especially anything electrical, Bob was the man to call.
He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Rita (Clark) and his mother-in-law, Corinne Clark of Denham Springs, LA; his five daughters and their families; Belinda Hobbs of East Millinocket and granddaughter Tricia; Deborah Terrio, her husband Jeffrey of Hudson, NH, and grandchildren Taylor, Tiffany and Travis; Sandra Emerson of Dexter and grandson Kyle, and step-grandson Brandon; Amanda Bourgeois and her husband Terry of Buffalo, NY; Jessica Caron and husband Christopher of Hudson, NH; his sister Nancy Young and her husband Bob of Loudon, NH; sister-in-law Rosanne Girard of Wichita, KS, many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, and his brother Eddie Girard.
His family wishes to thank Dr. David McDermott, Dr. Daniel Cassidy, Dr. Marshal Kaplan, Tufts Medical Center in Boston and staff for their expert and compassionate care over so many years, and the numerous doctors and nurses at St. Joseph Hospital and Eastern Maine Medical Center for the last few weeks.
