Robert “Rob” Rondeau – of Dracut died peacefully after a short battle with cancer on Saturday, January 9th, at the age of sixty-five. Rob was the beloved husband of the late Carolyn (Salamone) Rondeau.

Raised and educated in Lowell, Rob was a son of the late Lucien and Pauline (Laflamme) Rondeau. He graduated from Lowell High School with the class of 1973.

Rob worked many years in the office machine repair sector, allowing him to meet many people, which he enjoyed. Rob had a way of making connections with people everywhere he went.

He and his wife Carolyn made their home in the central square area of Woburn for many years, where they raised their daughter Danielle. His favorite holiday was Halloween, where every year he would set up a spooky display on his front lawn so all the Halloween parade-goers could enjoy.

Rob loved to be outdoors and could usually be found working to make his or his daughter’s lawns the greenest in the neighborhood. He was also a handyman that could fix just about anything you asked him to, and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone – he was always up for a good project. 

Rob was also an AA sponsor and helped others through difficult times, serving as an inspiration to many. 

In retirement, Rob enjoyed arts and crafts, spending time with his grandchildren, and traveling. He spent the past two winters in Las Vegas, soaking in the sun.
