JOBIT: Otten, Robert P. ‘Bob’ [MC1955 RIP] 2019-Aug-30

2019-Aug-31

Good Morning All,

This Morning, Marianne Reilly shared the very sad news of the death of Bob Otten. Marianne heard from Rebecca, Bob’s Wife, earlier today. Bob was called home peacefully last night, August 30, 2019.

As I said a few weeks ago, when with Bob, I knew I was in the presence of a good man. It was a feeling shared by many others. Bob was a man great of love, compassion, giving, stature and accomplishment. A proud Jasper and Friend of the College. Bob did what he did in helping others and he did it quietly without fanfare and surely not expecting accolades. Bob will be missed by so many. He was a friend to many of us.

Per Bob’s request, there will be no visiting hours or Service. Interment will be at a later date in Camden, Maine where Bob and Rebecca met and Married. We pray for the repose of the soul of this good man, we pray for Rebecca, their Children Barbara, Christine, Robert, Derek, Justin and their Family and Friends as they mourn the loss of their loved one. Thank you Marianne.

Thank you all. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

Dear Phil,

Thanks for sending. Your description of him is right on. Just a few weeks ago when Bob called to say goodbye, he conveyed the fact that he knew his life on this earth was near but that he had no regrets and did not fear death. A truly great and generous man who will be missed by many.

May He Rest In Peace!

Mike
