Robert Leo LaFlamme

AUBURN – Our dear father Robert, known as “Bob” to family and friends left this world at the age of 85.

We will deeply miss his indomitable spirit and zest for life.

He was a man of integrity and honor, full of grace until God called him home. Bob had a long-standing relationship with God and was blessed with his faith.

Preceded in death by his wife Rita LaFlamme, soulmate and the love of his life.

Bob lived his life as a hardworking, dedicated, faithful and, loving man. He made friends everywhere he went and could talk for hours.

Bob was a veteran and proudly served our country In the Army – serving two years in Germany.

Bob had a passion for playing the banjo and listening to banjo music.

In his later years, faced with health problems, Bob lived a courageous and gracious gentlemanly life.
