Robert John Mudge
Bob made his living as a boat and auto mechanic. As a youth, he was a resident of North Kingstown and Jamestown. For the last 25 years, Bob made his home in Punta Gorda.
In addition to his parents, Bob is survived by a son and daughter in-law, Robert L. and Stacey Cahoon; a grandson, Noah R. Cahoon; a sister, Suzanne Zile; her children, Melanie and William Zile; grandmothers Rita C. Perry and Mildred Mudge; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Growing up, Bob delighted in nature, collecting reptiles and building elaborate underground forts. The 5-foot black racer will always live in family folklore as it resided preserved in the basement. As an adult, he enjoyed the company of friends, whether camping, boating, or fishing.
A private service will be held at a later date. Contributions may be made in his name to Hospice Care, VNA of New England, 51 Health Lane, Warwick, RI 02886.
