Edmund Robert “Bob” Kindulas, 82, of Bristol, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 29, 2021. He was the son of the late Edmund and Sadie(Tanuis) Kindulas. Bob was born in Waterbury, and raised in Bethlehem until moving to Naugatuck early in his childhood. He graduated from Naugatuck High School in 1957. After high school, he earned a degree from Post University while spending 6 years in the Army Reserves. Bob loved grocery stores and sales. So, it is no wonder he made a career incorporating both. As a teenager and young adult, he worked in Naugatuck grocery stores, moving on to briefly selling Triple S Blue Stamps, and eventually working twenty plus years with a food brokerage firm. Bob shared a home with his partner of 38 years, Nancy Buffing. They enjoyed going to plays, shows, and dining out. Other things he enjoyed throughout life were, fishing with his son on the many bass boats he owned, spending time with his grandkids, and traveling. He got to see much of this country and many national parks, having made numerous road trips up and down and across the United States. While never one to pass up a card game, Bob often was the one to start a game of Acey Deucey at family gatherings, and loved making his near weekly trips to Foxwood’s poker room. Some of his other joys were watching UConn Women’s basketball, instant lottery tickets, and reminiscing and enlightening family about “the good old days”. Bob leaves behind his partner Nancy, and her daughters, Lori Bernabucci (Bill), Diane Doyon (Stephen) and their son, Wyatt. Also left to cherish his memory are his son Bob Kindulas and his wife, Melinda; his grandchildren, Ryan and Rachel Kindulas (fiance´ Andrew Fasulo); his sister, Shirley White; his nieces, Lisa White and Karen Hornak (Jeff); his friend and former wife, Carol Crean, cousins, and several great nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by an infant son, Richard Michael, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Bob will be cremated and his ashes spread. Family and friends will gather at a later date for a private remembrance.
