Robert Petropoulos of Peabody, Mass., lost his battle with ALS on Saturday.
Born in Salem, Mass., to James and Cecil (Morency) Petropoulos, he graduated from Salem High School, in 1967, and enlisted in the Navy. Printer by trade, he was employed by Parker Brothers through their closing, and then by Calendar Press until his retirement.
You could always find Bob with a smile on his face through good times and bad. He could always be found bowling, singing karaoke or just hanging out with friends. He always enjoyed the ocean and spending time with his family.
Bob is survived by his loving children, Bobby Petropoulos and wife, Jenna, Teri Decareau and husband, Tim; his beloved grandchildren, Jeremy Dunajski, Kayla and DJ Ingham, all from Peabody; his sister, Patty of Chelmsford; brother, Jimmy of New Hampshire and Mike of Maryland; and many wonderful nieces, nephews, and cousins. Bob was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Terri.
A celebration of life will be announced in the near future. Memorial donations in memory of Bob may be made to ALS Association in lieu of flowers.
