Upon returning from his military service, Bob worked as a postal carrier for the Dorchester Postal Service then transferred to the Randolph Post Office and was promoted to manager. It was when Bob and his wife Eileen had their first house built that he fell in love with real estate.

In 2017 Bob retired and moved to The Village at Duxbury and then to The Duxbury House where he socialized, made new friends and lived his life to the fullest.

Mr. Tripp your smile so dashing and your charisma and charm - unmatched! Even Elvis Presley could not keep up with your side smile. I have such great memories of you and Eileen in the kitchen at your home in Randolph. There was a magic between the two of you and you both had stars in your eyes. It was a sight to behold!

I'm sure you both are dancing in heaven as you did in your kitchen and are finally together once again!

Thank you for your service and for participating in life with vigor, zest, and true passion! You truly are an example of sharing the gifts given by our Lord above.

Fly High with Your Angel Eileen !
