Robert J. Kennedy, 74, of Plainville, died peacefully after a long illness, with his wife and best friend Susan by his side on Wednesday February 23, 2022. 

Born on April 15, 1947, he was the only son of William and Yvonne Kennedy, and was raised and educated in Southington, graduating from Southington High School in 1965.  He married the love of his life, Susan (Camerato) in 1970 making more than 50 years of priceless memories together.  Bob was a mechanical engineer for Stanley Works for many years, and moved on to quality management at Perry Technologies from where he retired in 2012.  A motorcycle enthusiast, Bob was a longtime member of the Meriden Motorcycle Club, where he leaves many friends and fellow bikers.  A former power lifting champion, he continued to make physical fitness a priority, and was a familiar face around the YMCA.  Bob was a dedicated volunteer for the Plainville Community Food Pantry, and enjoyed walking the beaches of New England with a cigar in hand on his family’s annual summer vacations.  He will be missed and remembered fondly by his family and wide circle of friends.

In addition to his wife Sue, he leaves his sisters-in-law, Ann Raucci and Kathy Narcum and her husband Ron; his brother-in-law Michael Camerato and his wife Cathy; many nephews and one niece. 

In lieu of flowers, Bob may be remembered with contributions to the Plainville Community Food Pantry, PO Box 233, Plainville, CT 06062.

Honoring Bob’s wishes, his family will celebrate his life privately.  The staff at Plainville Funeral Home extends their gratitude to the Kennedy family for their trust.  For online expressions of sympathy, please visit www.PlainvilleFuneralHome.com
