Robert Joseph Dessart

March 31, 1953 — November 26, 2020

We lost Bob unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020 from complications from COVID and lung cancer. He passed peacefully in his sleep at home.

Bob, 67, was born March 31, 1953 in Green Bay to Robert H. and Theresa Dessart (Edelbeck). He graduated from St. Agnes, Southwest and NWTC earning an AS in Accounting. He attended several years of college at River Falls. Bob worked as a Produce Manager at local grocery stores and the last 10 years, before he retired in 2018, he was an Engraver.

Bob was a music fan and loved to attend festivals. He was a lifelong fan of the Packers and Brewers, never missing a game with his dad. He will be lovingly remembered as very social, with a quick wit and sense of humor who enjoyed a good party and talking with friends. He will forever be in our hearts.

Survivors are Father, Robert H. Dessart, brothers, Pete, Tom (Virginia) and sisters, Donna, Pattie (Dave Vandenlangenberg), Debbie Beaudry (Danny), Lisa Duffy (Bob) and Liz Degroot (Kelly) as well as nieces and nephews Joe, Jeri, Courtney, Madison, Abby, Tyler, Danielle, Lee, DJ, Charity, Katie, Gwen, Noah and 16 great nieces and nephews.
