Obituary

Robert Arnold Reed passed away peacefully on February 2, 2020 at 86 surrounded by family and friends. He was born August 19, 1933 in Friendship to Philip (Bud) and Mildred Simmons Reed. He lived in Friendship most of his life. “Bobby” as he was known to everybody, met his wife Louise while working at Forty Fathoms in Rockland. They were married 49 years before she passed in 2013, he is now reunited with the love of his life, his mother and 3 brothers.

Bobby lobstered for many years with his boat named “Loweba” which stood for Louise, Wendi and Barbie. After leaving lobstering he worked as a carpenter and helped build the “new” Friendship Post Office among other projects, he then worked at BIW until a neck injury made him retire. He became a stay at home dad for his family. He loved making Finnish bread with dropped eggs on toast for his girls before they headed to school. One of Dad’s fondest memories was getting his family to try French toast with peanut butter—-they loved it! This special recipe has been passed along to family and friends. He tells the story of how gross his kids thought it would be until we tried it and loved it!

He loved his huge garden and took tremendous pride in how it looked and the quality of the vegetables. He even won a Pea contest in 1980 for the best tasting peas out of 21 entries. He proudly told that story to everyone who would listen.

One of his and Louise’s greatest adventure was a trip across county to Alaska to visit Barbie, then down to San Diego to see Wendi, then across the lower US back to home. In earlier years he loved whittling small pot buoys, reading his Alaska magazines, and taking rides up country with his wife. His grandchildren have fond memories of Gramp’s wonderful Thanksgiving dinners with his mashed potato and tractor rides around the yard.

He is survived by his two daughters, Wendi Munson of RI, Barbie Reed of NY, 4 grandchildren, Laura Maher, Susan Kennedy, Michael and Robbie Lunt and 12 grandchildren, Emmelyn, Adadlie and Brielle Maher of CT, Ezri & Alara Kennedy of RI, Nathin, Chase, Grace, Justin and Bishop Lunt of ME, Lucy and “born any day now” Lunt of ME.

A special thanks to the Nystrom family for all of their help and time in caring for dad, an additional special thanks to Michael Lunt for being there and caring for dad at the drop of a hat while he was at Windward Gardens.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Hahn Community Center on Feb 29th starting at 12 noon. Please join us in celebrating his life.

Hall’s of Waldoboro has care of the arrangements. To extend online condolences, visit www.hallfuneralhomes.com.

I haven’t been able to find words I felt were adequate to convey the state of my heart over the last week. Our family lost its patriarch this weekend. Mikes grandfather (Gramp, Uncle Bob, Bob, Dad, Bobby... so many titles!) passed away this weekend. Mike brought him home last Wednesday to spend his final days in his own home and stayed by his side through the end, which came Sunday afternoon. I could go on and on about how proud I am of Mike for everything he did... but that’s for another day. The hole Gramp has left feels insurmountable at time, but then I think of all the memories he has left us with to fill those holes when we him most in the days to come.

So here is to Gramp...
.
The one who was always happy to see everyone who came through his doors and would force feed you anything he had on hand.
.
The one who makes us all second guess if we are using the right spatula (since there are 12 different ones in the same drawer, each with a purpose he was more than happy to tell you about!)
.
The one who gave the best tractor rides.
.
The one who shared his gardening secrets with me for amazing crops of all kinds.
.
The one who accepted me and all of my kids from day one, without question.
.
The one who made it a point every time we visited to remind Mike to be a helpful and attentive husband (he never needed to be reminded, Gramp just wanted to be sure).
.
The one I ate an entire lobster for, even though I don’t like it.
.
The one who would sweet talk you into shoving those little nab grabber things they give you in the hospital in your pants to take home so that he had spares on spares all over the place.
.
The one who meticulously kept his kitchen in order. Right down to using twist ties that are easily older than me to keep things like the 28 different tongs closed in his drawers.
.
The one who would deliver the best dad jokes.
.
The one who would also tell you a dirty joke, but you’d have to wait for that unforgettable eyebrow raise to know for sure it was a joke.
.
The one who didn’t bat an eyelash when his 34 year old grandson told him he was going to share the bed with him for the night. He just scooched over.
.
The giver of the best hugs.
.
The keeper of some of our very best memories.

Gramp, we miss you beyond belief. Your laugh, that twinkle in your eye and your impressively handsome face echos forever in the lives of the family you surrounded with love so effortlessly. We carry you with us. My only wish is that I had been able to know you longer.

Keep it under 100 up there.

Ashleigh Lunt.

Such wonderful memories of Bobby and Louise Reed. Bobby sure love my nissua and home made bread. The kindness they showed me after the passing of my son Jimmy will never be forgotten, & neither will they. I surprised him once going there with Clara & delivered him nissua. I remember him saying, that's just what I needed. I believe it was. You both are together in Heaven. R.I.P. Love you both.
