Robert S. Newell (Bob) 72, husband of Kathleen H Johnson Newell for 50 years passed suddenly on June 8, 2018 in Brockton at the Good Samaritan Medical Center after a short illness.

Mr. Newell was born September131945 in Boston Ma. to parents Richard Newell and Irene Daily Newell. He was the youngest of three brothers: Richard and James both deceased.

He is a 1963 graduate of Brockton High School where he lettered in Track. After high school he went on to study at the Culinary Arts Institute in Connecticut where he received a Certificate in Culinary Arts.

In 1965 Mr. Newell enlisted in the United States Navy where he attended Boot camp in Great Lakes Illinois Training Facility. Upon completion of boot camp he was awarded the ”American Spirit Honor Medal” given to one recruit from each class for displaying Outstanding Qualities in Leadership. During his 23 year career in the Navy he received numerous Commendations and awards. He also achieved the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer, the highest rank an enlisted man can achieve. He retired with prestige and honor, and was very proud of his Naval achievements. After his career in the Navy he worked as a cook at Freda’s Restaurant in West Bridgewater, where he was affectionately known as “Cookie”.

Bob could be found listening to country music, playing horseshoes, spending time in Plymouth or at the casino with his lovely bride. Growing up as a foster child, one of the most important things to Bob was to have a family of his own.

Dad,
You were taken so suddenly. None of us are ready to face this world without you in it, but one thing you instilled in us is to be strong and keep going no matter how hard it may be. I know you’re up in heaven playing horseshoes and watching over your family and friends and I know that you’re my guardian angel. I wish we had more time to do those special things you had spoken about while you were sitting at the counter in my store. You’re forever in my heart and will never be forgotten. Thank You for making me the man I am today. Until we meet again someday. I love you!
Jason
