MILLINOCKET / LEHIGH ACRES, FL -- Robert R. "Fitzy" Fitzpatrick died March 29, 2007, at his winter home in Lehigh Acres, Florida. Bob was born October 5, 1948, in Millinocket, to Sally P. (Roche) and Robert Z. Fitzpatrick.

Bob spent most of his life living in Maine. He attended Millinocket schools and graduated from Stearns High School, Class of 1967. He began his multi-faceted working career in high school as a broadcaster for WMKR radio in Millinocket, then WLBZ radio in Bangor. After active duty in the U.S. Navy, he returned to broadcasting, working in radio and television for WAGM in Presque Isle. He then returned to Millinocket and Great Northern Paper Co., where he worked in various positions for more than 30 years, retiring when the mill closed, then returning to Katahdin Paper for several months before becoming a full-time Florida snowbird. Along the way, Bob also became a licensed commercial pilot, coached Pee-Wee basketball and Little League, attended Eastern Maine Community College, and always, always lived life his way. At the time of his death, he was serving as treasurer of the Loyal Order of Moose, Lehigh Acres Lodge No. 2266.

Bob was predeceased by his parents, Bob and Sally.
