Robert P. McEvoy, age 70, a lifelong resident of Quincy, died peacefully, Saturday, November 11, 2023 in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family.
Bob was born in Boston, to the late Robert H. and Virginia (Hasselbrack) McEvoy. Raised and educated in Quincy, he was a graduate of North Quincy High School, Class of 1971.
Bob was a Registered Nurse and received his Nursing Degree from North Shore Community College. He began his career working at the former Quincy City Hospital for five years and then went on to the West Roxbury VA Medical Center in the Medical Intensive Care Unit for over thirty-five years.
He enjoyed supporting all the Boston sports teams, vacationing on Cape Cod, and ski trips to New Hampshire. Most of all, Bob enjoyed the comfort of his home and loved his family, especially his grandchildren. He loved a good meal and could often be found preparing Sunday meals for his family – cooking was his heart!
Bob was a man with grit. Against all odds, he was a survivor. However, his relationship with God grew stronger in his later years as he attended Mass weekly.

Devoted father of Laura A. McEvoy of Norwood, Katelyn M. “Katie” Asack and her husband Keith of Randolph, and Robert T. “Bobby” McEvoy of Weymouth.
