Robert Brian (“Bob”) Norton Jr., of Hull, died suddenly at his home on Dec. 3. He was 53.
Born in Quincy on May 13, 1967, he was raised in Hull and was the son of Robert B. Norton of Naples, Fla., and the late Beverly A. (Stewart) Norton.
Bob attended local schools and graduated from Hull High School with the class of 1985. He worked for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority as an operator. He drove buses in the Greater Boston area.
In his spare time, Bob enjoyed fishing, building model airplanes, and working in his garden. An avid reader, he loved history and learning about wars, historical events, and keeping up-to-date with current affairs. Most of all, he had a deep love of his family.
Bob is also survived by his loving siblings: Laura Harris, of Hull; Millie Lohnes and her husband, Kenny, of Avon; Barbara O’Connell and her husband, T.J., of Weymouth; Florence Petruzzelli and her husband, Stephen, of Hull; and the late Julie Silva. He was the dear uncle of nine nieces and nephews.
His funeral service and interment will be celebrated privately in the Pyne Keohane Funeral Home, Hingham.
