Robert “Bobby” Barnett passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 4, 2022. Although Bobby had a number of health complications in the past, he fought bravely to overcome them despite numerous setbacks.
Bobby was born on September 27, 1967 and lived his entire life in Westford, MA. He attended Westford public schools until high school where he attended and graduated from Keith Catholic in Lowell, MA. He worked many years in shipping/receiving at a local lumberyard and other companies.
Bobby will be deeply missed by all. He was a caring son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend. He was always there to help and was very generous. He lived his life always wanting to be around people, especially his friends and his niece and nephew. He enjoyed spending his time with his friends and family, whether eating at one of his favorite restaurants or watching the Bruins or Patriots. Bobby loved hockey, baseball, and football and played many years on Westford and Keith teams. He loved to read and spend time outdoors, especially in the White Mountains. He would spend many days driving his truck all over New England taking beautiful pictures of the mountains and seacoast.
He is survived by his loving parents Richard and Joanne Barnett, his sister Stacey Barnett, her husband Chris Kurhajetz and his nephew Nile and niece Leah. He is also survived by many lifelong friends and other family members. He was preceded in death by his loving grandparents and his beloved collie Shayne.
