Rev. Robert L. d’Entremont

On July 25th, Rev. Robert L. d’Entremont, 96, of Marstons Mills, passed peacefully from earth to the Kingdom of Heaven where he now sees the face of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The son of the late Simon and Annie (Phillips) d’Entremont, he was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on June 11, 1924.  He is survived by two nieces, Donna Foster of Dover, NH, Andrea d’Entremont of York, ME and three nephews Charles, David and Gary d’Entremont of York, ME.  Rev. Bob also leaves behind his extended loved ones, the family of Arnie and Pam Johnson of Osterville, MA who, for decades, have showered him with love as Uncle Bob.

At a young age, Bob answered Gods invitation when he placed his faith in Jesus Christ. Following his profession of faith, he was Baptized on May 4th, 1941 at First Baptist Church of Kittery Point, ME.  During this time, he developed his talent and love as a church organist.

During World War II, Bob entered active duty in the US Army, where he served as Chaplain’s assistant for the majority of his military service. 

A graduate of Gordon College, Pastor d’Entremont answered the call and entered his first pastorate at Immanuel Baptist Church in New Bedford. It was here where, this wonderful servant of God was ordained in 1959.  Later, he would go to shepherd Immanuel Baptist Church in Cambridge.

He served, nine years, as the New England coordinator for the Conservative Baptist Association churches.  He would travel throughout the region, preaching the Word of God and meeting thousands of followers of Jesus.  He was an active member of the Osterville Baptist Church and would frequently attend Christ Chapel in Centerville.

Rev. d’Entremont was the founder of Christian Life Ministries.  The primary purpose of the ministry, to encourage and support local churches focus on deeper spiritual growth.  With an emphasis on discipleship, the Holy Spirit spoke to his heart and the Lord gave him favor with this blessed ministry.

An avid bike rider, Bob would often be seen riding the path parallel to the Cape Cod Canal.

Bob, as many of us knew him, loved people!  He traveled as far and often as he could to meet new and long time friends. The Lord gave him a great memory, remembering the names and stories of so many.  This kind, loving saint has touched more lives than any of us can count.  He would often pray for a revival, where this world would seek Jesus Christ in huge numbers.  Bob’s primary motivation was to one day hear God’s blessed words…”Well done, good and faithful servant”.  Heaven celebrates, and we rejoice the life of Rev. Robert L. d’Entremont.

Rev. d’Entremont’s remains were buried on August 12th at the National Cemetery in Bourne.  Due to restrictions of the COVID 19 response, the celebration of life service will be offered, online at OstervilleBaptist.org  and the Osterville Baptist Church Facebook page on September 19th at 11AM.  Those who are unable to view the live streaming service may view the downloaded version, later, on the website.
