Robert J. Hardiman, age 65, passed away in the Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, Massachusetts on Sunday, November 18, 2018, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Boston, Massachusetts on May 14, 1953, he was the son of Martin E. and Mary M. (Martin) Hardiman. He was raised in Dedham, Massachusetts, where he attended Don Bosco Technical High School with the Class of 1971.
After high school, Robert began working with Stone & Webster in 1971 until 1989, then worked for PRC, Inc from 1989 until 1997. He worked as a consultant for several companies until 2001, when Robert found his passion for real estate, taking a realtor’s position with the Re/Max Real Estate Center in Walpole, Massachusetts. He worked as a realtor for the past 17 years, proudly serving his many clients.
In his off time, Robert enjoyed spending time on Cape Cod, where he spent countless hours on the ocean fishing. He also enjoyed camping in Myles Standish State Forest, venturing out for some fried clams or his iconic black iced coffee. However, most of all, Robert loved spending time with his family.
Loving father of Michael M. Hardiman and his wife Lindsey of New Bedford and Erin J. Hardiman of Dover, New Hampshire.
