Robert D. DiFazio, 85, a resident of Moultonborough, NH, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Friday April, 26, 2019. He was the beloved husband of Patricia A. (Creech) DiFazio with whom he would have celebrated 64 years of marriage on June 26th.

He was born in Cambridge, Masssachusetts on December 15, 1933, and was the son of the late Daniel C. and Dorothy H. (Carboine) DiFazio.

He served as a past President of the Jaycees of Chelmsford and was a former member of the Chelmsford Lodge of Elks.

Earlier in his career, he spent more than 18 years working for Raytheon Corporation. In the summer months, Robert worked part time as a docent at the Castle in the Clouds at Lake Winnipesaukee.

Dear Pat and family
I have lots of wonderful memories of Bob from the Castle. He was always so excited about telling people about the Castle (even if if was a little off base). We chuckled about it at the beginning. He was always there to help out and substitute for me if I needed him. He definitely will be missed. Especially that big bright smile. RIP sweet man.

It has been many years but I will always remember cruising the Virgin Islands with Bob and our friends from PR. Pat my sincerest condolences to you and your family. Although we drifted far apart the memories will always be there.

Pa you will be missed by many! The girls and I are extremely grateful for the wonderful memories made at the "Magic Land." You truly were one of a kind with so many stories to tell. Alexis, Victoria and I will cherish all the times we had, laughs and think of you every time we get munchkins

I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with Bob at Raytheon in Manchester NH for many years. He was a good friend and I enjoyed our get togethers in Manchester for many years. He will be missed by all!

Pat, Bob and Ed are in heaven right now reminiscing over the 63 years of friendship we had, from Army days, to the present.
They were born 2 days apart, and died 7 months apart. Life gives us many beautiful memories. Enjoy those memories and speak of them often as it helps you to talk of the all the good times. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers. Irene Longley
