Robert Earle Gaulin passed away at the Kaplan Hospice House in Danvers on August 20, 2019, after a long illness. He was 87 years old.

Bob was a favorite patient of his doctors, nurses and caregivers over the past year because of his congeniality and interesting stories. He was raised in the Malden area, West Newbury, and Haverhill, Massachusetts. Most of his years Bob resided in the Boston, Somerville, and West Newton area. He had been an avid reader throughout his life and enjoyed singing and acting. Having a life-long interest in physical fitness, Bob spent hours every week working out at the YMCA in Boston and West Newton. He continued to ride his bicycle into his senior years on a regular basis. Bob had a varied and interesting employment history having worked as a ranch hand in California, a mess man on a cargo carrier to Louisiana, a clam digger in South Boston, a delivery driver for Rowe Printing, a document packer and shipper at the Christian Science Church in Boston, a cook and bartender, as well as a chauffeur driving people of all walks of life.

Bob was the son of the late Georgia Smith of Norwich, CT and Earle Gaulin of Malden, MA. He had a dear friend in Doreen Pinkham for many years. Bob is survived by his sisters, Joan Caulfield of Middleton and her husband John, Adele Solano of Melrose and her husband Richard, and Laraine Tuxbury of Malden, and her husband James, as well as Annette Gaulin-Wells of Holualoa, Hawaii, and her husband Chuck.

At the request of the family, funeral arrangements were private. He will join his mother in eternal rest in New London, CT.
