Robert Simmons, Jr.

October 24, 1952 — February 20, 2022


Robert E. Simmons Jr., 69 of Dublin, Pennsylvania passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on Sunday, February 20th, 2022. Born and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey on October 24th, 1952, Bob was the son of the late Robert E. Simmons Sr. and Gloria (Neumann) Simmons. Bob graduated from Hoboken High School in 1971. He was raised a devout Catholic and in his youth was active within the church. Bob was employed for 19 years as a machine operator at Hoechst Celanese until the company relocated in 1997. Following his employment with Hoechst Celanese, he worked as a Stationary Engineer within multiple New Jersey school systems until retiring. Known as “Bubba” to his friends and those close to him, he will be remembered for his quick-witted humor, and having no filter. He often used four letter words and was never shy to display his joys and dissatisfactions. Bob enjoyed the simple pleasures in his life such as kicking back on the sofa with a pack of smokes and tuning into his favorite reality tv shows. During his lifetime, Bob also enjoyed: Attending sporting events, particularly baseball games where he cheered on his beloved New York Yankees, Broadway shows, music concerts, watching movies, English comedies and “classic” tv shows, collecting sports memorabilia, going to the dinner (especially for breakfast), heading to “the shore”, and simply enjoying the company of his friends and those he loved. In contrary, Bob had often voiced his displeasures in life for: customer service representatives, his EX’s, the winter weather, people who parked too close to his car, and the hospital, in which he referred to as “the house of pain”. Throughout his lifetime, Bob had to overcome many challenging obstacles. Some in which enabled him to personally mentor and help others that were faced with similar tribulations. He was a model of strong will, and determination. An overall tough S.O.B., but a pussy cat at heart. Bob’s greatest joy and sole purpose in life was for his only child and daughter, Meg. There was never any question if he loved and cared for his daughter, because he always made it so obvious. He was the type of Father who wasn’t shy to display his affection by giving a hug and kiss and saying, “I love you”. Bob always had his daughters back and best interest, even when she messed up (which was a lot). Always a good listener and voice of reason, Bob exemplified the unconditional love that a parent should have for their child. Bob will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by those who knew and loved him. He is survived by his daughter, Megan and son-in law Stephen Argento of Perkasie, PA. and his “Granddog”, Apollo.
