Robert B. Garland (Bobby), 61, passed away at his home in Falmouth Massachusetts on March 1, 2019.
Bob was born in Ipswich Massachusetts, and grew up in Falmouth. He was a member of the Falmouth High School varsity hockey team and state champions tennis team in 1973, graduating in 1975. He traveled to Virginia and taught tennis, then spent a few years in San Diego California where he met his wife Debi. They returned to Falmouth to raise a family. Bob worked for several years in auto sales, initially at Clauson Chevrolet in Falmouth and eventually as a manager at Hyannis Toyota. He also owned and operated a parasailing company in Falmouth for several summers.
Bobby loved the ocean. He enjoyed boating, fishing and spending time at the beach with family and friends. He was also a talented piano and guitar player and liked to jam with his brothers and friends. His great smile, friendly disposition and larger-than-life personality will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his wife Debra; his daughter, Amber, and son-in-law Anthony Leathem from Moorhead Minnesota; and his son, Reed, daughter-in-law Shelby and granddaughter, Saylor, from Chandler Arizona. Also, his mother, Marion Frazer Garland of Falmouth; brothers Doug, Philip, James, and Peter; sisters Patricia, Elizabeth, Carolyn and Amy; and many cousins. He was preceded in death by his father David and his brothers Jack, Billy and Tommy Garland.
A memorial and celebration of his life will be held in the spring.
