Tribute & Message From The Family

Robert C. Wacome, age 62, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at his home in Westford. He was the beloved husband of Barbara A. (Berner) Wacome with whom he would have celebrated 39 years of marriage in July.

He was born in Lowell on February 23, 1958, a son of William B. Wacome of Dracut and the late Maureen L. (Burke) Champagne. Bob was raised in Dracut, attended local schools and graduated from Dracut High School. He was a resident of Westford for many years and was formerly of Lowell.

He was currently employed with Buckland Security Services in Billerica where he worked for 17 years. Bob had a passion for antique and muscle cars, especially his 2005 Chevy Monte Carlo. He loved the outdoors, enjoyed fishing and canoeing, singing karaoke, and especially enjoyed Sunday picnics at local scenic spots with Barbara. Bob was very lucky with playing the lottery and scratch tickets. He was friendly, outgoing and had a great sense of humor. Bob's greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed getting together for cookouts and cooking on the grill.

Besides his loving wife, Barbara, and his father, William, he is survived by two sisters, Brenda Bow and her husband, Jeff of Loveland, OH, and Linda Whitney of Hudson, NH; his in-laws, Helen Whitley, Brenda and Rick Presley, Diane and Jim Coverdale, Teresa Berner and Bruce Strait and Bob and Melissa Berner, all of Delaware; dear friends, Ron and Yvonne Howe and Bobby Drinkwater; also many nieces, nephews and dear childhood friends from the Dracut area. He was the brother of the late William Wacome and brother-in-law of the late Jeanie Mitchell.

Funeral Services for Bob will be held privately.

Childhood friends like Bob hold a special place in your being, Bob helped to balance out the group with his endearing qualities of humor, kindness gentleness. We shared many good times of boys being boys he and his family hold a special place in my heart.

I only worked with Bobby for a short time but the time we did work together was filled with endearing conversation and laughs. We shared a love for music. I will always remember his bright smile when we realized we were both Pisces. He talked a lot of you, Barbara, and his love for you. I am very sorry for your loss. A dear friend taken too suddenly. Rest easy.

i have the greatest loving memories of Bobby from the day he was born having lived with them. All the kids I loved dearly. He was so quiet. . My heart is aching. First Billy and now Bobby. Rose and I moved out of state as we are now and didn't see much of them for the last 30 years. My tears are heavy .God bless you Bobby. You and Billy are now together and looking down at us and at all the laughs we had when you were younger. God Bless!!!!

Bobby, my brother, my best friend. I have to thank you for always being there for me! We talked every single day! I believe I've tried to write to you here at least 5 times and I still can't say what's in my hearrt! You were the best of the best and I adored you!

I will still love you every day and so will your friends, Barbara and the "Kenwood friends"!!! Especially our Dad! Both of his son's are gone now and his heart is broken too! I still have so much I want to say but that will stay in my heart forever!! You are my angel, kiss Mom and Bill...I know for certain we will meet again. All my love! Your sister, Brenda
Stay sweet!

Bobby so sad to see you leave this earth on to bigger and better places in the loving hands of the Lord and your mom and brother. You will always be in my memories as the best friend a kid could ever have. I will remember the time of all the forts we made and the BB gun incident as well as all the wood we stole to make our club houses. You were there for my mom and brothers funerals as a kid. You were always by my side through thick and thin. We were inseparable hanging out at the Dark Spot. Bobby I will always love you like my bother. I pray that you rest now in eternal peace. I will visit your bed side till the day that I leave and meet up with you and Billy for one more beer. Your were truly a great friend and I will always love what we had. I'll will miss you dearly. Your child hood friend always. Mike St.Hilaire. GOOD BYE BOBBY I LOVE YOU BROTHER.
