Rozzi, Robert G., Sr. of Hull, died December 4, 2023.

Bob was born June 2nd 1935 in Harlem, New York, the second youngest of 7 children to Theodore and Jeanne, immigrants from Italy and France. The family soon moved to Mt. Vernon, a suburb of New York City. He attended and graduated from Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains class of 1953. He moved to Hull when he was 17 following his oldest brother who was stationed at the coast guard station. He remained in Hull where he soon met his wife. He was a devout family man and catholic and was very involved in St. Mary’s parish. He was a stalwart supporter of St. Ann’s church in Hull where he sang  and played violin in the choir for over 65 years. He was a man of many hobbies including hunting, fishing ,trapping, taxidermy, gardening, all of which he often enjoyed with his brother-in-law and dear friend the late Fred Frazier. In his younger years he was often found at the local roller rink performing in stunt shows on roller skates. Music was a constant in his life having played the violin from the age of 12. He supported his family as an auto mechanic and eventually manager at Penske corp. from which he retired, and was well respected for his knowledge and skills by all who knew and relied upon him. Ever a sports lover and die hard fan of the New York, Yankees, Giants, and Rangers he almost never missed a game and exercised his own love of the sport by coaching Hull little league for many years. His extensive gardens were his pride and joy, the fruits of which he was only too eager to share with any and all. Bob had a great sense of humor and was king of the one liners, never at a loss to see the humor in any situation or offer a unique perspective. A calm, steady presence, he was a genuine, decent man who always wanted to help out other people. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He leaves behind his wife of 60 years Joan (Mascioli) Rozzi of Hull. Daughter, Judy Robbins of Hull, son, Robert G. Rozzi, Jr. and his wife Susan of Hull, daughter Peg Cavallo of Lakeville  and her partner Mike Pascarelli of Stoughton.
