Robert F. Gwiazdon, 77, of West Warwick, RI, passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side. Born in Minneapolis, MN, he was the son of the late John and Ann (Smoka) Gwiazdon. He was the loving husband of 51 years to Arlene F. (Passarelli) Gwiazdon. Robert was a proud member of the United States Navy, SeaBee Construction unit serving in Vietnam. After his discharge, he worked as a General Contractor for Alfred Calcagni and Sons Construction before starting his own construction business Watson’s Home Improvement. He custom built a stunning home brick by brick, nail by nail for his growing family relying solely on his unsurpassed skills as a craftsman, his resolve, creativity and hard working hands. Always considerate of others, “Bob Watson” as he liked to be called, would always take time to chat with the clerk at Cumberland Farms or share a dog biscuit with a stranger walking past with a pooch. The “thumb’s up” as pictured on his work van sums him up best. Always smiling; always optimistic. Besides his wife, he will be greatly missed and is cherished by his children Lisa DiIorio and her husband, Robert; his son Robert Gwiazdon and his wife, Amy; daughter Stacey Vess and her partner, Judy. Bob also leaves behind his sister Phyllis Gwiazdon from Eden Prairie, MN and three adoring grandchildren, Josh, Kevin and Mason. And of course, the beloved boxers he had over the years, most recently his sidekick, Dudley. A burial with Military Honors will be held on Monday, March 16, at 10:00 a.m. sharp, at the Rhode Island Memorial Veterans Cemetery, 301 South County Trail, Exeter, RI.
