Obituary

Robert J. Hulihan beloved husband, son, stepdad and brother passed quietly in his sleep at age 65 on March 21, 2020 in his home after a short illness.

Bob or Huli as he was affectionatly called by his family and friends had a unique form of humor and a wonderful smile which he would greet everyone with that he knew and met.

Bob was born in the Bronx, NY and at a very young age moved to West Haven, CT where he attended St. Louis Elementary and graduated from Notre Dame High School.  He attended the University of New Haven but chose his lifes career with the railroad where he worked until his retirement in 2017.  He moved to several different places in his career including CT, MA, NY, PA,  and GA.  He moved one more time to Summerfield, FL for his retirement years.  Bob enjoyed life and loved his family and friends.  He, with his “buddies” and long time friends started a band called the Cargo of Despair which he was a member of for almost 30 years until it disbanded.  Bob loved his music and art.  He was a movie buff and avid reader of all types of books and literature.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Mary Costello Hulihan of 27 years; mother, Virginia “Ginny” Hulihan; sister, Eileen Hulihan Young; brother, Charles (Theresa) Hulihan and two stepchildren, Patricia Rosato and Marty (Kristi) Rosato.

Due to present circumstances services for a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers donations should be made in his name to Hospice of Marion County.  Online condolences may be said at www.baldwincremation.com.

    Dear Mary and family,

    John and I just heard the news if Huli’s passing. We are both deeply saddened by the news. Huli was a great person. We both worked with him on the railroad from MA, NY, PA and finally to GA. He had a great personality and always knew what to say that would bring a smile to your face. He definitely was one of a kind.
    Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you and your family.

    I remember Room 209 and some cargo gigs and all those guys. And all the others who were there to witness it. Bob was larger than life and to the brim with smiles and character. I can hear his voice right now. For me to think of Bob in this way only having met him a handful of times makes my heart go out to those who knew him on a deeper level. You are in my thoughts.

    Mary, I am so sorry. You changed Bob's life, of that I'm certain. With all due respect, it takes a special lady to be with Bob. I think you know how important and influential he was to me.
