Robert A.'s Story
Robert A. Radie, 79, of Salem, NH passed away Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at The Residence at Salem Woods.
He was born in Lawrence and was the son of the late Samuel and Helen (Sapuppo) Radie.
Bob was raised in Lawrence and was a graduate of Holy Rosary grammar school and Central Catholic High School. He was the Executive Vice President of Sales at Konica Business Machines and Director of Marketing at Horizon Settlement Services. He also served in the Army Reserves and was a former member of the Sons of Italy in Lawrence.
Bob's love and devotion to his family was immeasurable. He enjoyed so many things in life. What stands out the most is his love for the beach and body surfing, or as he would say "riding the waves”; snowmobiling at his log cabin; and spending time hearing about all that was going on in his children’s and grandchildren’s daily lives. Bob had an amazing work ethic and so much energy and passion for life. He was also extremely proud of his Italian heritage.
Bob was predeceased by his sister, Barbara Radie.
He is survived by his wife, Lorraine T. (Suzor) Radie with whom he would have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on November 16th, 2017.

(Sarah, Melissa, Lauren, Anna, Paige) and Michelle Radie-Coffin, Esq. and her husband, Gary of Concord, N.H. (Julia, Alex, Charlie, Sam, Eliana)
