Robert Peter Grindle


East Hartford, Conn. - Robert Grindle, 75, of East Hartford passed away in his home Friday December 7, 2018.
I have been tasked with writing my own obituary. Makes sense in a way. No one knows me as well as I know me. I was born October 7, 1943 in Blue Hill Maine. I came into this world as a chubby baby with wispy white hair, I leave the same way; fat with wispy white hair.
I leave to celebrate my life; my three sons Gary, James and Matthew, their patient wives; Michelle, Nicki and Dianna. Six smart and wonderful grandchildren; Joshua, Ella, Hailey, Teagan, Tanner and Riley. They all know who belongs to whom.
Conversely, I leave to celebrate my passing, my two ex-wives who believe I am responsible for everything wrong in this world.
Many memories were created along the way including my 43 mostly good years as an electronic tech at Pratt and Whitney.
I go to join my parents and relatives in a family ceremony at Pine Grove Cemetery in Sedgwick Maine.
Robert was the son of Nora (Staples) and Basil Grindle. He is survived by, in addition to his sons and their families, his sister Barbara M. Grindle, brothers Jack and his wife Barbara, Tom and his wife May, Roger and his wife Susan and his brother in-law- Raymond McVay, their children and families. He was predeceased by his parents and sister Jane.
Burial services will be held at Pine Grove Cemetery on June 22, 2019 @ 10 AM. All are welcome to attend.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Death stings very much. It’s one of the hardest thing to cope with. May the “God of all comfort” gives you strength and peace of mind in this time of difficulties. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
