Robert J. Goulet


LEWISTON — Robert J. Goulet, 69, of Montello Manor passed away peacefully, Tuesday, May 17, following a long illness.

He was born in Lewiston, Feb. 6, 1942, the youngest son of Edouard and Marie (Mathieu) Goulet. Educated in Lewiston schools, Bobby or Whitey, as he was known to many worked cleaning the homes of friends and family before he retired.

Although Bobby lived a quiet life, he thoroughly enjoyed his seasonal visits to Canada and Florida, sporting a golden hue upon his return to blustery New England. Aside from his travels, Bobby enjoyed music, watching the Boston Bruins (he would be pleased they’re in the playoffs), and of course food, in particular strawberry marshmallows, donuts, milk chocolate candy bars and Sam’s Italian meatballs. Although a man of few words, Bobby could light up a room with his sparkling blue eyes and beaming smile.

He is survived by his niece, Suzanne Goulet and her husband, Jonathan Hightower, of Fallbrook, Calif.

He was predeceased by his father in 1945; his mother in 1986; and his beloved brother, Laurier in 2008.

His passing leaves a void in the hearts of the family and friends he leaves behind.

A heartfelt thank-you is extended to the following for the love and care they provided, Irene and Maurice Boisvert, Germaine Desjardins, Michelle Hawkins, Denise Caron, Jeannine Velazquez, Dr. Oswald, and the caregivers and staff at Montello Manor. You are truly God’s special angels.
