Robert A. Gendron

Robert A. Gendron, 62, passed away comfortably on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023.

Bob lived a full life in his few years. He served 21 years in the Air National Guard, earned five degrees, enjoyed a diverse career in tech, physical therapy, education and the Department of Corrections and traveled to 32 countries.

When Bob did have free time, he was volunteering in the community, being an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion and renovating his home, which he did right up until the last few years.

Robert is survived by his wife Jane (Finch) Gendron, children Robert F. Gendron and Marion E. Gendron, sisters Debbie Wickett (and brother-in-law Bill C. Wickett) and Michelle Kennedy and his nieces and nephews.

His spirit will live on through adoring family and friends.

The family is deeply appreciative to the Fort Hudson Nursing Home staff who provided tender care for Bob.
