FUNERAL MASS ONLY : Monday at 11am

Mr. Robert A. Szypko, 95, of Danvers passed peacefully on Jan. 22, 2019. He was the loving husband of Elizabeth ( Donnelly) Szypko with whom he shared sixty-six years of marriage.

Born in Danvers, he was the son of Filip and Anna (Brudzynski) Szypko. Bob grew up in Danvers and later graduated from Yale University and then earned his Masters from Salem State.

Bob served his country with the U. S. Navy during W.W.II. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Mr. Szypko was employed as an engineer with United Aircraft and then as an Industrial Arts teacher at Danvers High School. A true craftsman, he enjoyed furniture making, whittling, traveling and gardening. Besides his wife Elizabeth, Bob leaves his five children, Paula Szypko &(Marten Quadland), Martha Szypko, Jane Marchurs, (Kenneth), Mark Szypko (Eileen) and John Szypko (Pia). He was the grandfather to Robert, Mary Ann, Colleen, Gregory, Joshua, Filip and the late Alexander Marchurs. He was the brother of the late Mary, Martha, Leonard, Jon and the Rev. Alexander Szypko.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated for Robert on Monday at 11am at St. Mary of the Annunciation Parish, Conant St., Danvers, MA to which all are kindly invited. Memorial donations may be made to the Gavin Foundation, Gavin Foundation Development Department 675 East 4th Street, PO Box E-15, South Boston, MA 02127.

An honerable, loving, and respected man who showed his family what old-fashioned values and dignified living were most important in making an impact in this world. God Bless Mr. Szypko and may his family find peace in his loving memory and great impact he made in his and their life. May Elizabeth find comfort in knowing he resides with his Creator and waits for her patiently until it's her time to join together once again. Love and prayers to the entire Szypko family. Love, Lori

Hi John, So sorry for your loss! Your Dad was a great guy! I loved his woodshop class at DHS so much that I took it for 3 years. He allowed me to do independant study for a year. It was my favorite class in High School. My condolences to your family. Robert will be deeply missed! Keith Cunningham DHS 1981
