Robert Ellis Grignon (Bob) on August 6, 2018, lost his long battle with cancer. Born the fourth son to Gilbert Paul Grignon and Rose Ostuni Grignon on February16, 1943. At the age of 3 he contracted polio and spent 18 months at St. Charles Hospital, Port Jefferson, New York until he was well enough to resume living with his family in North Port, New York. Bob attended Northport High School and Hicksville School of Cosmetology. Bob was considered a gifted hair-designer. He owned and operated two salons on Long Island, New York before moving to Florida in 1998. Before retiring in 2012, he was employed by JC Penny’s salon and Calvetti & Co.

Bob adored his 5 grandchildren, Phoenix Jones Grignon, Patrick and Mikayla Thompson, Dominick and Addelynn Grignon, as well as great-grandson, Brentley Colt Thompson; also son-in-law, Gabriel, and daughters-in-law, Jessica and Mandi. Also survived are his brother, Michael Grignon, three sisters-in-law, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

    I can't believe we won't have the chance to see you again! We will miss your silly sayings, funny stories and your contagious laugh! It was such a joy to watch you with our children! The love you had for them was so amazing. You will forever hold a special place in each of our hearts. Addelynn will remember your Casa Boo Boos and hair styles. You were the first person she would let get near her with a hair brush. She really adored you and enjoyed her time with Poppy! Dominick will remember your stories, and talks, and how you would call him Schwartz. He is so thankful for the English Muffin Pizza making with you on our last trip. You always seemed to connect with him on a special level, and would laugh at the things he would say. I am grateful for all of the love you gave and lessons you taught your son, and for accepting me into your family without hesitation. We laughed about the time you took my phone call at 2am to answer a silly question. We know you will always be watching over us, but boy will we miss you!
