Robert F. Geggatt, Jr. (formerly of Falmouth) died on February 2, 2021 at home unexpectedly in Sarasota, Florida. He was 67 years old. He was married to Pamela M. (Sherlock) Geggatt for 43 years.
Rob was proud to be a native Cape Codder and of his family’s genealogy in the town of Falmouth. He grew up alongside his father and brothers working at Geggatt’s Lawnmower service. He graduated from Lawrence High School in 1971. Rob worked for many years at the Falmouth D.P.W. and later had a long career with Kings Way Golf Club in Yarmouthport in a Superintendent’s position. Rob had a passion for classic cars, (Chevy’s of course). He was a former member of the Falmouth Classic Car Club. Rob was often found at car shows, auctions, museums, or raceways. In fact, he was out shopping for a Camaro right up to his last day.
Rob was a family man who loved his children and was often heard saying, “They do me proud”. There was nothing he enjoyed more than working on cars, boats, or houses with one of them. “Papa” cherished spending time with his beloved grandchildren Henry and Anna.
Rob retired in 2015. He’d sit, grinning on the lanai and ask, “Who’s got it better than us?” each morning. He enjoyed traveling through the mountains on Rte 81 from Old Silver to Siesta Key to spend time with family and friends on both ends. He loved dancing on the lanai, (Elvis of course) with his beloved Pammy or at the Sniki Tiki with Susie and Marcel.
He will be remembered for his kind soul and know how, his work ethic, wit, and generous, helping hand.
He leaves behind his beloved wife, Pamela (Pammy) Geggatt, his three sons Robert F. Geggatt, III, of Falmouth, Brendan P. Geggatt and his wife Danielle Geggatt, of Falmouth, and Bryan R. Geggatt and his wife Lisa Geggatt, of Mashpee; and his daughter Tammy L. Geggatt, of Wareham. He is also survived by Sherry Geggatt, Susan and Marcel DesVernes, Joan Geggatt, Gregory Geggatt and his wife Heather. He is pre-deceased by his parents Bob and Betty and siblings Kimberly Geggatt and Michael Geggatt. He leaves 4 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Visiting hours will be Tuesday, February 16th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Chapman, Cole & Gleason, 475 Main Street, Falmouth, MA 02540. Burial will be held at a later date.
