Robert J. Concannon, a resident of Braintree for the past 32 years, died peacefully at his home surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 72.
He was the beloved son of the late Leo and Susan Concannon, devoted and loving husband of Dorothy (Lynch) Concannon, adoring father of Julie, Susan, Thomas and his wife, Claire. His grandchildren, Henry and Penelope, were the light of his life. He is also survived by “the best big brother ever” John Concannon, his wife Linda and nephews Johnny, Jeff and Chris.

His other interests included playing piano, horse racing, classic cars, spending time with his family and relaxing in Florida.
