Robert 'Bob' Marshall Romancier
June 12, 1935 - Nov. 7, 2012

Robert Marshall Romancier of Redmond, Ore., died at his home on November 7, 2012, at the age of 77.
Bob was born June 12, 1935, in Springfield, Mass., to John and Mabel (Cook) Romancier. His early years were spent in Hartford, Conn., and Cushman, Mass., just outside of Amherst, where he graduated from high school. During high school Bob's interest in music grew and flourished, he helped found a Dixieland jazz band and also a summertime community band. He attended the University of Massachusetts studying forestry, which he really enjoyed. He was given a full scholarship to Yale where he received his master's degree.
He then married his first wife, Mary Lou Armstrong.
Bob had joined the Forest Service as a Research Forester, for 40 years, first doing his own research. In 1980, Bob was ordered to Pennsylvania as deputy director of the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, leaving his family in Oregon. He continued to cross the country to be with his children as often as possible. While he enjoyed his work, he also missed his family.
In 1990, he started correspondence with Glenda Faxon, who was working in Seattle at the time. Glenda was his final true love; they married in 1992, honeymooned crossing the country, and lived in Broomall, Penn., for almost 2 years, then to Portland for 18 months, as he wrapped up his USFS career. They then moved to Redmond, Ore., in 1996, where they had a lovely home built in a really neat neighborhood. They formed good strong relationships with many of their neighbors and the fine people of Redmond Christian Church.
Bob is survived by his wife, Glenda Faxon Romancier; three sons, Rob and Babette Romancier, Peter and Tonya Faxon, and Greg and Traci Faxon; seven grandchildren, Briana, Zack, McKenzie, McKray, McKord, Abbi and Gillen.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Lyndi, and his brother, Jack.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, November 17, 2012, at 2:00 p.m., at Redmond Christian Church.
Donations in his name may be made to Shepherds House. Please sign our online guestbook
