Barbara grew up spending summers on Crystal Lake, where her parents owned the camps of Crystal Springs. Soon after their wedding, they bought a home on Crystal Lake, where together, they raised their 3 children and where their grandchildren were able to enjoy similar memories on the lake. Barbara worked in Concord for the US Fish and Wildlife Service and retired in 2004 after 44 years of service. Barbara enjoyed spending time in the lake and volunteering for her community. Robert was a mechanic for Sears Roebuck in Concord for many years and a longtime Scoutmaster for Troop 242 in Gilmanton. Robert enjoyed telling stories of hunting and fishing trips he had taken with his sons. They enjoyed their retirement years together, spending time with their children and summers in their camper up on Moosehead Lake in Greenville, ME. They will be remembered for their love of the outdoors, their service to their community, and their love and devotion to family and friends.
