Robert Charpentier, 79, passed peacefully on December 4, 2020.

Bob served his country for 20 years (Vietnam) and trained as a Master Chef at Cornell University, and later worked as a missile site manager. After retirement from the Air Force he worked at First Liberty Federal Credit Union and met lifelong friends there.

Bob knew every great fishing hole from Bermuda to Alaska, held a patent for a lighted tip up, and held the Montana state record for Walleye Pike he caught using a Zebco 202. Bob entertained us with singing French songs and playing his harmonica. He played Santa for Greenfield School and entertained children everywhere with his animal sounds and pranks.

Bob is survived by his bride, Jane of 59 years; his children, Kay Scott (Marilyn), Monica and Heidi; and many other loves ones. To read the complete obituary and share condolences, visit the O'Connor Funeral Home website.
