Bob was truly one of those people who made Chelmsford, "Chelmsford". He touched the lives of so many people in so many ways, that its hard to remember everything he did for so many of us. His guidance and help while he served on the Conservation Commission helped us to finally create our beautiful Veterans Memorial Park on North Rd.....with the brook running through it. As a "Blow-In" from Lowell, he taught me what a Septic System was all about... how to install it right...and how to keep it working properly. Invaluable info for a "City Boy". As a Veteran myself, I know his service to our Country in the Navy certainly inspired the next generation to follow in his footsteps....."Let the Children Guard what the Sires have Won". Bob Greenwood was a Winner; he's a man I'll never forget, nor will my wife and children. I know that many, many people feel the same way. Our Condolences to his family and friends. Thank you for sharing him with us. May his Memory be as a Blessing and endure forever.

Sam Poulten and family
