FRAMINGHAM – Robert E. Qafzezi passed away on Tuesday October 27, 2020, in Hospice care after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 89 years old.
Born in Framingham in 1931, as a lifelong resident, Bob was well known and liked around town. He worked briefly at Dennison Mfg. after graduating from Framingham High School and enlisted in the Army in 1952. Bob served in Korea during the conflict and received several commendations for his service. He was honorably discharged in 1954.
Bob worked for General Motors for more than 26 years, retiring in 1991 to spend time with friends and family.
He loved football and flea markets, coffee with friends and a good “debate” over current events. Bob, or “Uncle Bobby” to his nieces and nephews, was a very special man. We were fortunate to have had him in our lives and we will miss him greatly.
A private graveside service will be held on Monday November 2 at the National Cemetery in Bourne.
Due to current health restrictions, there will be no wake or funeral service.
In lieu of flowers, please pass on a kindness to someone in need.
