Robert Ow of Wellesley, MA passed away peacefully on January 18, 2023 at the age of 76. He had been living with Alzheimer's disease.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sandy Ow, son Richard (Needham), daughter-in-law Tina Soo Hoo, daughter Jennifer Bardorf (Wellesley) and son-in-law Ian Bardorf. He was "Ye Ye" to his granddaughters Penelope and Addison Ow and "Pa" to his grandchildren, Ryan, Noelle and Caitlin Bardorf.
Robert retired at the age of 55 from a life-long career with the Department of Transportation. He loved doing everything and nothing with the cherished love of his life, Sandy. They especially enjoyed being together in Hawaii. Robert will be remembered for his quiet confidence and for his unwavering love for his wife, children and grandchildren.
