Robert Michael Manderson
1950 - 2023
It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Manderson wish to announce his passing on May 20, 2023 at the George Dumont Hospital with family by his side.
Robert was the son of the late Clayton and Irene (Bowes) Manderson, born August 2, 1950, in Newcastle, NB.
Robert was a member of the IBEW electrical union and worked construction most of his life. This took him to many places in North America which he enjoyed. He loved to travel. Robert’s biggest passions in life we’re music, playing guitar, singing and riding his Harley. In later years he enjoyed being a member of the Masons.
He is survived by 5 siblings, Paul (Madeline), Ann Martin, Bett (Reid) Flett, Pat (Amanda) and Tate (Shirley), all of Miramichi. He was predeceased by his sister, Peggy and brother-in-law, Melvin Waye.
Robert will be missed by many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
We would like to thank KRT for all the wonderful caregivers that helped Robert for the past year. Also a thank you to the staff of Region 7 and ICU of Georg Dumont Hospital.
There will be no visitation. A public graveside service will be held for family and friends at St. Mary’s Cemetery as per Roberts wishes on Friday, May 26, 2023 at 10:00 AM.
A gathering to celebrate Robert will be held after the service at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 345 Campbell St.
