Robert J. Landry, 76, of Rocky Hill died Monday, April 27, 2020, at his home in Rocky Hill. Robert was born on August 18, 1943, in Springfield, Massachusetts, to the late Edward E. Landry and Dorothy Cormier Landry. He grew up in Enfield, where he attended the former St. Joseph’s School and Enfield Public High School. He later lived in Storrs and Windsor Locks before moving to Rocky Hill.
He joined the Army National Guard Company C 242nd Engineer Battalion, served as a Sergeant, and received an honorable discharge. His 38-year career as a telephone equipment installer, an occupation for which he traveled extensively throughout Connecticut, spanned transitions from Western Electric to AT&T to Lucent Technologies, from which he retired.
In retirement, Robert continued to apply lifelong skills in woodworking and home refurbishing, participated in league bowling at Spare Time lanes in Vernon, volunteered at the Veterans’ Administration’s Sgt. John L. Levitow Healthcare Center in Rocky Hill, and, with his son, Tim, followed their passion for baseball by visiting 32 Major League baseball stadiums.
Robert is survived by his partner of eight years, Marilyn T. Pitman; his son, Timothy R. Landry, of Coventry; and three grandchildren, Dr. Amanda M. Landry, DVM, of Florida; Evan K. Landry of Maine; and Grace A. Landry of Coventry. He is also survived by stepsons Matthew J. Beganski of Minnesota and Jacob S. Beganski of Oregon; siblings Caroline (Carol) L. Gray (husband Robert); twin brother Ronald J. Landry (wife Alane); and Regina L. Fiume; as well as nieces, nephews, in-laws, and cousins. He was predeceased by his son, Todd R. Landry, his brothers Edward F. Landry and Daniel T. Landry, and special grandmother Orpha LaGrange Cormier, who lived with Robert’s family growing up and helped raise the children.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private graveside service will be held at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Fairfield Avenue, Hartford, with Browne Funeral Chapels of Enfield in charge of arrangements. Online messages may be extended to family using and
The family would like to thank the staff and physicians at Middlesex Hospital, especially Oncologist Dr. Robert J. Levy, for their excellent care.

Tim, Your father deeply touched my life and the lives of my sons. He will always be remembered for the times he made us smile, for the shared joys of family life, baseball games, E.O Smith basketball games, road trips, week long board games, and the last present that was always hidden on Christmas. His peace is now with him. God Bless him and may God Bless you and your family.

Bob was my neighbor and was always ready to help me out- changing batteries in smoke detectors, shoveling snow and putting furniture together. Also loved his little dog. I am truly sorry for his passing. Mary Higgins

Dear Tim and family,
We send our heartfelt condolences to you all following the abrupt ending to your father's adventures here on this Earth.
Please know that we are here to support you in any way possible during such a sad time. The wonderful photos on the site are, however, a true testament to your dad's kind and social life. His lovely smile in the pictures of gatherings with family and friends radiated love and caring, which I know you and your family will carry on. I am sad that we cannot be with you in person to show our support and recognize your dad's life during this time of Covid-19 social distancing, but we will be there with you when the circumstances allow a gathering in his remembrance.
With prayers and caring thoughts,
Kate Stephenson (and Tyler, Greg & Randy)
