Robert Stewart Robertson

February 02, 1930 ~ June 15, 2020

Robert Stewart Robertson, 90, of Sebastian, Florida died peacefully on June 15th at home surrounded by his family.

Stewart was born February 2, 1930 to Janet Stewart and Andrew Robertson and grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey. He graduated from Bayonne Technical High School in 1948 and honorably served in the Korean War.

Stewart was a draftsman and an electrical inspector for over 60 years, beginning his career in New York City and moving to Bridgewater, NJ, Puerto Rico, Texas and West Virginia. He retired to Sebastian, Florida in 1997.

Stewart was a master craftsman who loved to build and repair and he embodied the idea of “creating with the heart and building with the mind.” He loved the ocean and being out on the open water. Stewart will be remembered for his quiet, kind, honest and genuine demeanor. He was a devoted father and grandfather. His family was his treasure and he loved to spend time with them as they did with him.

Stewart is survived by Jean Marie, his devoted wife of 63 years; sister Margaret Gavin; children Mary Ann (Captain Dave Santos), Peter (Jennifer Tabakin), Janet (Rose Smith), William (Debra Delaney), and Catherine (Donald Goodkin); grandchildren Louis, Kevin, and Rebecca; niece Betty Singer; and many grandnieces and grandnephews. He was predeceased by his parents and sister Janette Rogers.

The Robertson family is especially grateful to the staff of Hospice of Indian River County and to caretaker Don Marsh. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Hospice at A celebration of Stewart’s life will be scheduled at a future date.

I had the pleasure of knowing and playing bridge with Stewart at VBBC and remember him as a gracious and quiet man. I will miss his best dressed shirts in the bridge center.

  • 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.
