Obituary

Robert “Bob” Joseph Hassett, 82, of Port Orange, Florida passed in peace at his home on February 21, 2016.

Bob was born and raised in central New York along with his siblings, Mary, Fred, William, Jack, Ed and Sharon.  Bob was in the Navy and was stationed in California where he met his wife of 61 years, Joan Hassett.  After his 4 years in the Navy, Bob and Joan moved back to central New York and raised their three children, Mark Hassett, Diane Castelli and PJ Hassett.

Bob was a steamfitter with Local 267 for over 50 years and was an original member of the local Elks Club.  He was also a member of the American Legion and VFW.  Bob and Joan enjoyed over 40 years of boating on Cayuga Lake including many group dinners and trips to Canada or Ithaca.  This provided many wonderful memories and friendships.  Bob was extremely handy and always willing to help anyone in need with a project or if they were stuck in the snow!

After retirement, Bob and Joan moved to Charlotte, North Carolina for nine years. The past 11 years lived in Port Orange, Florida.  During retirement, Bob enjoyed golfing, traveling with his wife and continued his joy of cooking.  His grand dogs especially loved his special “grand pa treats”.  He was a loving grandfather to Megan (Shane) Schumaker, Michele (Nick) Morton, Kristin (Darren) Clary and Martin Hassett and their four and growing great grandchildren.

Bob was an amazing husband, father and friend.  He will be missed by all those who loved him.

    To the Hassett family,

    I remember Mr. Hassett from Local #818 of the Steamfitters (proud member before the "merger"). My Dad, Jack Connell, was the business agent for years and they were longtime friends. I am sorry for your loss; I am thinking of you.

    Joan and family ,
    We were so sorry to hear about Bob. Though distance has kept us apart for sometime now, I have always considered Bob a true friend. He was always there to lend a helping hand whether on the job, at the Elk's or marina. Bob had a great sense of humor and made for a great companion. He was by all measures a great friend and will sorely be missed.

    We want you to know that you're in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    In sympathy,

    Tom & Rita Dygert

    Joan, Diane, & Joe: How sorry we were to learn of Bob's passing. Bob was a great guy who we enjoyed very much, after all we had to look at his little face all the time because you faced our boat! Bob served as a great role model for us when Tony had his stroke-just keep fighting. Bob will be in our prayers as well as your whole family.

    Joan, Mark, Diane, PJ and family -
    I am sorry for the pain you are feeling now. I wish I could say something that will make it easier, but there is nothing to say. All I know for sure is you are part of a loving family and I know your Dad felt that everyday. There is a quote by EE Cummings that is special to me so I want to share. "I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go)".

    Love, Fel
