Robert Victor Semon, 72, of Williamsburg, passed away on August 15, 2020.
Robert attended SUNY at Binghamton where he received his undergraduate degree, he then went on to SUNY at Buffalo where he received his Juris Doctorate.
Robert, or as everyone called him, “Bob”, was a dedicated employee of Marriott Vacation Club at Ford’s Colony where he won many awards for customer service and excellence. He thought of his fellow co-workers as his extended family and loved his job there.
He loved spending time watching football, especially his Buffalo Bills. He loved going to local festivals and eating all the food he could. Bob could never pass up a good deal and spent lots of time scouring the Sunday coupons. There was nothing greater than the love or pride he felt for his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all.
Robert is preceded in death by his parents, Petronelle and Victor Semon, brother, Dr. William J. Semon, and brother-in-Law, William W. Larew. He is survived by his wife, Mellanee A. Larew; daughters Meredith McCoy of Hampton, VA and her husband James, and Lindsey Bethel of Hampton, VA and her husband Marc; step-son, Charlie McPherson, of Durham, NC; and grandchildren, Lance Corporal Matthew Smith, Marshall Smith, Lucas Currier, Sasha Currier, Avery Bethel; Sister-in-law Linda Semon of Des Moines, IA and niece Jennifer Rostal (husband Scott) of St. Paul, MN.
An open house celebration of life will be held on Friday, August 21, 2020 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Bucktrout Funeral Home. For those attending, we ask that you please wear a mask.
