Passed away on December 2, 2021, at the age of 59. Predeceased by his parents, Willis and Molly (Diamond) Pierce. Survived by his loving siblings, Lynne (Barbara Farran) Kliman, Rabbi Dale (Robert) Schreiber, and Martin (Hilarie) Lawlor; long-time and loving friend Tom Greco; nieces and nephews, Jed (Tina) Kliman, Rebecca (Art Lussier) Kliman, Hannah (Brian) Howard, Michael (Paola) Schreiber, Andrew (Olivia) Schreiber, Elisa (Ryan Peterson) Schreiber, Joshua (Elisabeth Vieira) Lawlor, and Shira (Matan Frenkel) Lawlor; many cousins; great-nieces and great-nephews; and a community of friends.
His family and friends will remember him as giving and kind, and always willing to help however he could. He was a gifted carpenter, an enthusiastic fisherman, and brought the same demanding attention to both! Robert loved getting together with family—especially if it involved merengue chocolate chip cookies and the family favorite, chocolate-chip pumpkin cake.
Services and interment will be held privately. A celebration of Robert’s life will be announced at a future time. Donations may be made to the COPD foundation in Robert’s memory.
