Obituary

Robert H Wilcox., 84, of Newton, MA passed away on Jan 29, 2020 surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife Ann (Roach) Wilcox, six children and their spouses: Kerry Botticelli (Michael), Diane Wilcox, Keith Wilcox (Amy), Cecelia Magargee (Scott), Brendan Wilcox (Jen), and Sheila Lane (Jeff) and 15 grandchildren. He is predeceased by his first-born son Bobby-Joe.

A proud graduate of Boston College, Mr. Wilcox met the love of his life Ann while at BC in 1955 and they were lifelong partners for the past 63 years.

Mr. Wilcox would like to be remembered for three things: being fiercely devoted to his family, as husband, father, Bampy and to the Roach family members; founder of Wilcox Carpet Cleaning; and being a longtime Newton fast-pitch softball catcher.

A man of great faith, he passed away peacefully. 

His Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Sat Feb 1 at 10:30 AM in Our Lady Help of Christians Church, Newtonville followed by interment in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Needham. Relatives and friends are kindly invited.  Visiting hours will be in the Eaton & Mackay Funeral Home 465 Centre St Newton Corner on Fri from 4-8 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Mr. Wilcox’s name to Joslin Diabetes Center, One Joslin Place, Boston, MA 02215.
