Robert (Bob) John Judge

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the passing of Bob Judge. He passed away peacefully Wednesday morning, September 7, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones. He fought a long and courageous battle with recent health issues.

Bob was born on June 15, 1937 in Jersey City, NJ to the late Johnny and Vera Judge. He was a veteran of the Air Force and after his service he went on to work for American Airlines.In 1960 he met and later married the love of his life, Maribeth. Together they moved to New York were they lived for 45 years raising their four children. Bob worked for General Foods for 26 years as the Director of Information Systems. He then moved on to a successful consulting career for JWP which involved lots of traveling to West Africa. He would spend summers at his lake house in New Hampshire awaiting visits from family and friends.

A year after retiring in 1999, Bob & Maribeth moved to Savannah, Georgia were he would spend his last 23 years. He enjoyed playing tennis and golfing at The Landings Club. He was also instrumental in raising funds to bring paddle tennis a favorite sport of his to The Landings. Bob was also a Eucharistic Minister and an active member of St. James Parish in Savannah. Bob was a devoted family man. He was idolized by his children and later his grandchildren to whom he was known as Popi. He loved hearing of their new endeavors and never missed a chance to tell him how proud he was of them. He took a keen interest in their academic, social and professional lives. Always giving his sound advice.

Being in Bob’s presence a laugh was bound to be had. He knew how to get a crowd going with his quick wit and humor. His laugh was contagious and smile infectious.Bob will always be remembered as a kind, humble, and witty man. He was a true gentleman
and lived a life of integrity. His company was always enjoyed by his family and friends. He will be dearly missed.

May I express to you, Maribeth, and all of the Judge family my deepest and most sincere sympathy on the recent death of your beloved Bob! Although there were only a few times that I was in Bob’s company, those times will always remain memorable to me! He came to my niece Mary and his son Bob’s house one Halloween dressed as Julius Caesar with his wife Cleopatra…and since I was Nefertiti…the Egyptian connection kept us laughing and joking together all evening! He played a great Caesar and the night was really so enjoyable and full of fun…you had to have fun when you were around Bob‼️ He was a charming handsome gentleman who with his great humor always made others feel welcome and so very good about themselves in his presence! May God extend his hand to Bob as he brings him up into Heaven where he will be in glory with the Lord until we shall all meet again in the Grand Reunion‼️ With love and prayers, Judy Giovino Mary & Bob’s Aunt from Florida
