Robert R. Theroux, 91, formerly of Wellsville, NY, passed away peacefully November 22, 2021 in Bayberry Commons, Pascoag, surrounded by his family.

Bob was born in 1930 in Slatersville, RI to Alice (Remy) Theroux and Donat Theroux. Bob graduated from Burrillville High School in 1947 and served in the US Navy, from which he was honorably discharged in 1952. He attended Wentworth Institute of Technology, graduating from the Steam and Diesel Engineering program in 1956. He then moved to Connecticut to start a long career with Terry Steam Turbine Corporation. In 1957 he married Isabelle (Carroll) and together they raised three daughters. Bob and Isabelle moved to Wellsville, NY in 1987, and he began a long and happy retirement in 1992.

Bob could turn his hand to anything, be it building a porch, renovating a kitchen, or restoring an antique motorcycle. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and had a number of other hobbies including playing tennis, HO gauge trains, and radio-controlled model airplanes. Bob loved dogs and could regularly be seen walking his beloved Kia, and later Callie, around Wellsville.

Bob was predeceased by his wife Isabelle and also by his only sister Claire (Theroux) Cahill. He is survived by his daughters and sons-in-law, Christine and Thomas Sayles of Mount Pleasant, SC, Pauline and David DiSciacca of Enfield, CT, and Claire and Dipen Parekh of Amersham, UK. He is also survived by a granddaughter, two grandsons, two great-granddaughters, two great-grandsons, and many nieces and nephews, including Kathy (Cahill) Leclerc of North Smithfield, to whom he was especially close.
