Remembering Robert Witherspoon: Lifelong Community Volunteer and Avid Fisherman Passes Away at 72


Robert Scott Witherspoon Obituary, known to friends as “Bob,” passed away on April 10, 2024, at the age of 72. He had experienced a decline in health in recent years. Bob was born on September 19, 1951, in Suffern, New York, and he spent his childhood in South Glastonbury, Connecticut. Throughout his life, he made his home in various locations including Brattleboro and Burlington, Vermont, as well as Portland, Maine.


Bob was known for his active involvement in community service. He devoted his time to volunteering at soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and various advocacy and support groups in each city he lived. His passion for helping others was a significant part of his life.


In addition to his charitable work, Bob had a love for people and enjoyed ‘wheeling and dealing.’ He often supplied his brothers with fishing poles and his family with a variety of unique items he found. Fishing was one of his greatest passions and remained a constant interest throughout his life.

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held at a later date according to the convenience of his family. Those who wish to honor his memory can send donations to Preble Street in Portland, an organization dedicated to assisting those in need.
