MILLINOCKET - Robert Paul Jandreau, Sr., 64, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at a Millinocket hospital. He was born February 6, 1951 in Lincoln, the son of Herbert L. and Blanche M. (Barr) Jandreau.
Bob was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served a tour in Germany. He worked in the Finishing Room as a Headloader for the Great Northern Paper Company in East Millinocket from 1974-2008, when he retired. Bob enjoyed fly fishing with his son, as well as as following the Red Sox. He will be remembered for his strong work ethic - he was always obsessed with working long hours at the mill, then coming home and cutting wood as a way to "relax." For many years, Bob had a dream of owning a tractor, which he was able to realize when Sharon finally relented.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Sharon T. (McCluskey) Jandreau; a son, Robert Jandreau, Jr. and his wife Jodi; a grandson, Anthony William Jandreau; four brothers, Richard Jandreau and his wife Lee Ann, Jack Davis, Charles Davis and his wife Doris, and Harold Davis and his wife Verna, all of Millinocket; two sisters in law, Linda Johnson and her husband Frank, and Clara Albert; and an uncle, Phil Barr and his wife, Lil of New York. While all of his nieces and nephews were close and special to him, Bob will be especially remembered by niece Lori Jandreau. Bob will also be missed by his canine friends, Petey and Lily.
The family would like to extend a special Thank You to all their family and friends for the love, help and prayers offered for them and Bob, and also to the Med Surg nurses at Millinocket Regional Hospital for all the kindnesses and courtesies extended to Bob and his family. Their support means more than words can express.
Friends are invited to visit with the family from 1-3 P.M. on Friday, February 5 at their home at 350 Penobscot Avenue in Millinocket. Graveside services with military honors will be held in the springtime at the Millinocket Cemetery. Gifts in memory of Bob may be sent to the American Heart Association, 51 US Route 1, Suite M
Scarborough, ME 04074 , the Alzheimer's Association, 383 US Route One #2C, Scarborough, ME 04074, or to the Katahdin Area Support Group, P.O. Box 374, Millinocket, ME 04462. Arrangements are by Lamson Funeral Home, Millinocket. Messages of condolence may be expressed at www.lamsonfh.com.
