Obituary for Robert Leon Topjian Jr.

Robert L. “Bobby” Topjian Jr., age 74, a longtime resident of Westford, passed away at Lowell General Hospital on Friday, March 10, 2023 surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Christine (Vermette) Topjian with whom he enjoyed 42 years of marriage.

He was born in Lowell on October 30, 1948 and was the son of the late Robert Sr. and Muriel (Polites) Topjian.

Bobby graduated from Lowell High School in 1966. Following graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, proudly serving his country as a Corporal from 1969 to 1971. He held an associate degree in accounting from Nashua Community College and was a Master Plumber at Topjian Plumbing for over 40 years. Bobby enjoyed bowling, hockey, and coaching softball. He loved spending time with friends and family, including card games with friends and morning coffee with the guys. Always up for a banana split, he was a great person to spend a summer afternoon with. As an avid thrill seeker, Bobby loved roller coasters and was known for keeping his hands in the air the whole ride. He will be dearly missed.
