Robert Cleary Obituary, Death – Robert Cleary, a devoted father, son, and brother who lived in Burlington, Massachusetts, passed away at the age of 38 after a long and difficult battle with an unexpected illness. In spite of the fact that Bobby was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on March 24, 1983, he chose to make Andover, Massachusetts, his primary residence for the majority of his life. At Andover High School, he had completed the requirements for his high school diploma. Bobby was well-known not only for his artistic abilities, but also for his kind and compassionate nature, a smile that was infectious, and his generous nature.

Early on in life, he decided to pursue his talent for music, and while he was still in high school, he joined bands, recorded CDs, and participated in other musical endeavors. After that, he continued his education and pursued his interest in music by enrolling at Berklee College in Boston, Massachusetts. At the time that this sentence was written, Bobby was in the midst of his fourth year working as an electrical apprentice for the IBEW Local 103 in Massachusetts.

He is survived by his mother, Linda (Call) Cleary; his father and step-mother, Robert S. Cleary and Cindy Cleary; his sister, Julie Anna Cleary; and step-sister, McKenzie Holmes; his nephew, Izaac Florencio; and a number of other aunts, uncles, and cousins. He will be missed very, very much.
