Robert D. Lashua, known by all as Bob, was a man of many adjectives - funny, loyal, and talented. Born on January 14, 1947, he lived a life characterized by these traits and so much more. His loyalty was unwavering, evident in his 53-year marriage to his beloved wife, Carol, whom he married on June 20, 1970. Bob loved the outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, camping, or riding his Honda Gold Wing. He spent his professional career as a Technical Support Engineer in the Networking industry, working with notable companies like Digital, 3Com, and finally retiring from Dell EMC.
Bob was a proud resident of Hubbardston, Massachusetts, but also held fond memories of living in Lancaster, and Fitchburg, Massachusetts. What mattered most to Robert were the times spent with his family and friends. He leaves behind a legacy of love in his son Chris and his wife Jessica, his son Jon and his wife Kara, and his sister-in-law Nancy Lashua. Bob was preceded in death by his father Theodore, mother Marie, and brother Edward.
