Robert Cyr

February 10, 1932 ~ April 13, 2022

Robert (Bob) Cyr, 90 (1932-2022), of Vero Beach, Florida passed away on April 13, 2022.  He was the beloved husband of Pauline (Berube) Cyr also of Vero Beach for 67 years.

In addition to leaving behind his beloved wife, he leaves his son Paul Cyr and wife Arlene Cyr,  and his Daughter Michelle (Cyr) Geoffroy and her husband Steve Geoffroy.  He will also be missed by his 3 Grandsons, and 4 Great Grandchildren.

Bob was predeceased by his parents Edward Cyr and Jeannette (Archambault) Cyr.

Bob was born in Taunton and raised in Fall River Massachusetts.  He was a graduate of Prevost High School.  He spent most of his life in Fall River before retiring to the warmer climate of Vero Beach, Florida.

Bob entered the United States Army at the age of 20 and was a Korean War Veteran.  He served as a Corporal from 1952-1954 as an Ordinance Supply Specialist and Supply Clerk.  During his service he earned the Korean Service Medal with 2 Bronze Service Stars, the Presidential Unit Citation, the United Nations Service Medal and the National Defense Service Medal.

After Korea, Bob returned to the textile industry where he had started as a stock boy.  Over 41 years he worked his way up through Anderson Little from the stockroom, to the cutting area, and eventually became the Director of Purchasing for 3 large textile plants.

Bob has always had a love for traveling.  With his young family and his 16’ trailer he would travel all over New England and Canada whenever he had time off from work.  Then, in the last several years, he had the privilege of not one but 2 trips of a lifetime.  He sailed around the British Virgin Islands for a week with 2 of his grandkids, making the trip even more special.  Then, for his 60th wedding anniversary, he and his wife Pauline traveled to the UK, spending a week in London and a week touring the countryside escorted by one of his grandsons.

When he was not traveling he could often be found playing many late night card games with family and friends.  During his retirement he could often be found walking the beach with his wife or as an avid NE sports fan reading a sports book given to him by his son.  The one that he was most recently enthralled in was about his all time favorite Celtics.

He was a man of faith having been raised in Catholic Schools, passing this tradition onto his children and could be found in Church every weekend.

Bob was a wonderful man of high integrity. His 67 year marriage to Pauline is a model for all.

He even survived broken ribs from his ultra competitive daughter

Bob was a bright light in the lives of those he touched. He brought enthusiasm to everything he did. I still fondly remember barbecues, basketball and card games at his home where he welcomed me like family. But most importantly I remember the love and respect he had for his wife, daughter and son.

I heard the news from my father Robert Bedard, who had been friends with Bob for more than 60 years. My love and sympathy to Pauline, Paul, Michelle, and all others who loved him. He had a blessed life.

Bob will be greatly missed. He was a warm, caring, respectful, and funny man, who welcomed me into his family, as originally the friend of his daughter, Michelle and husband, Steve, and further on, wonderful friends, Michelle’s brother, Paul and his wife, Arlene. Bob and Pauline often made me feel at home at holiday dinners, cookouts, and family events, and when I had a family of my own, our families enjoyed being together. We have missed Bob and Pauline since they moved to Florida, and we are wrapping our NE arms tightly around our FL family. The world has lost a wonderful man. Our deepest condolences.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
