WATERBURY – It is with profound sadness and overwhelming grief that the family of Robert McNamara Kennedy announce his sudden passing following a brief illness on Sunday December 24, 2023 at Waterbury Hospital.

Mr. Kennedy was born on May 18, 1961 in Waterbury, the son of Marie (LaMontagne) Kennedy and the late Arthur Kennedy.

At the time of his passing, he was the owner and operator of Safe Homes Inc. specializing in home safety inspections, lead testing, and monitoring services. Robert was an avid fitness enthusiast and was a member of several local gyms. He loved the beach and his cottage on Cape Cod but nothing was more important to him than his family and friends.

Left to cherish his memory and honor his legacy besides his mother, are Robert's siblings: Sharon Kennedy, Denise Milroy and her husband Andrew, Lynn Kennedy and her husband Paul, William Kennedy and his wife Janet, Marla O’Connor and her husband Michael, and Pamela Kennedy. Left to miss the uncle they were so fond of are his nieces and nephews: Alison, Krista, Libby, Patrick, Emily, Paige and Maggie as well as his great nieces and nephews: Jack, Phoebe, William, Bennett, Gryffin, Henry, and Claire. Robert also leaves behind his life long friend, Meg Kelley and his beloved dog and companion, Romeo. Robert will be sadly missed by all those that were blessed to know and love him. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
