Robert Bruhm


BRUHM, Robert Arnold -95 of West Northfield, passed away peacefully on the morning of January 9, 2019 in South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater. Born in Cookville, he was the second son of the late William and Florence (Jodrey) Bruhm. Robert was a sawyer, taking over from his dad, after his accident. He always had a story to tell and our drives always had one, especially when it came to the mills which I am sure we will think of, every time we drive by where one was. Robert was the oldest member of West Northfield, where he has resided his entire life. Surviving are his daughters Isabel Ernst (Don), Joanne Kelly (Ray); daughter-in-law Kathleen "Tiny" Bruhm; grandchildren Charlotte, Raymond (Angie), Jeffrey (Suzanne), Ryan (Rebecca), Jeremy (Melissa), Randy (Alice), Lyle (Loretta); great-grandchildren Shawna, Kyle, Emma, Taylor, Allie, Myah, Damion, Hunter and Foster; great-great-grandson Bentley; chosen granddaughter Mackenzie Corkum; brother Lawrence (Helen); sisters-in-law Grace, Patsy Paulette; several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife of 70 years, Vera; son Bobby; daughter Janet; chosen grandson A.J Wamboldt; brothers James, Paul, George, David; sister-in-law Margie. There will be no visitation at the funeral home. Funeral Service 2:00pm Monday in R.A. Corkum Funeral Home, Wileville, Rev. Willis Ott Officiating. Interment in Maple Grove Cemetery, West Northfield.
