Tribute & Message From The Family

Message From The Family

Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Bob by adding your memories and photos.

Robert C. Lordan, age 70, of Humarock, died Thursday, December 12th following complications from pneumonia. Bob was born in Dorchester, the son of the late Daniel "Bud" and Helen (Ballam) Lordan. He grew up in Canton and since childhood, has spent summers at the family home in Humarock which has always been an important part of his life. He was a member of the first graduating class of Xaverian Brothers High School, the class of 1967. He earned both his Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees from Bridgewater State College. For 35 years, he was a teacher in the Canton School system, teaching Science and Computers at the Galvin Middle School where he was also a computer coordinator. In addition to teaching Science, he became a Technology Specialist and Network Administrator. Bob spent 8 years in the Coast Guard Reserve which enhanced his love of the sea. He retired from teaching about 12 years ago which gave him additional time to spend boating and fishing.

Bob could be described as quiet, low key and deliberate. It can be said that he appreciated life, especially the simple things that mattered most to him, that being family and close friendships. He also enjoyed the solitude and quiet time tending to his garden in Humarock. For the last few years he has been splitting his time between Massachusetts and Florida, which of course allowed for more time for his favorite hobbies.

He was blessed to be part of a very close family of 5 boys and 1 girl, a family that currently includes 4 generations. As his extended family has grown, he always maintained a genuine interest in his 15 nieces and nephews and 14 grand-nieces and nephews. Besides his nieces and nephews, he leaves 2 brothers, Dan Lordan and his wife Barbara of Marshfield and Tom Lordan and his wife Donna of Cranford, NJ and his sister, Jeanne Hay and her husband Ken of Weymouth. Two of his brothers, Rick Lordan and Michael Lordan died in 2009.

Visitation for friends and relatives will be held at the Farley Funeral Home, 358 Park St. (Rt. 27) Stoughton on Sunday, December 22, from 10 AM – 12 PM followed by a Funeral Home Service at 12 PM. Bob's family has suggested that instead of flowers, donations in his memory be made to your favorite charity.


Condolence & Memory Journal

Robert was my classmate at Xaverian from 1963-1967. He was a pleasant classmate.

I had Mr. Lordan for a teacher in 7th and 8th grade ('82-'84). A classmate just informed me about his passing. I am very sorry for your loss. What a great science teacher he was! While studying oceanography, our class did a message in a bottle experiment. In high school, I was surprised to be notified by Mr. Lordan that my letter had been found- in the Orkney Islands! A boy who lived on a farm (with "150 breeding ewes") was throwing stones into the sea and noticed my bottle in the sand. The form the boy filled out, faded from the sun, along with a letter from him were returned to Mr. Lordan, who forwarded them on to me. I can't believe the bottle made it that far! Rest in peace, Mr. Lordan.

I am shocked and saddened by this sad news. I often chatted with Bobby while seeing him on his Humarock walks. Such a peaceful and kind soul. Please accept my sincere condolences and prayers to Bobby and his family.

Humarock won't be the same without Bobby. This message is late I know and I feel bad that I didn't make the service but please accept my sincerest sympathy.

To the Lordan and Hay Families we send our sincerest condolences for your loss of beloved Bobby. Bobby was a great person and I have fond memories of times with him in Humarock over the years. Some of which were of Michael and I tending his boat (the old green Chris Craft inboard) off Humarock while Bobby was diving for lobsters. I can remember one dive outing where Bobby was a bit upset (a rare event) because we did not see him surface or hear his shouts and he had to swim back to the boat with a loaded lobster bag against the current. We agree that summers in Humarock will not be the same without Bobby.
