Robert John Dotolo, 53, passed away on April 20, 2022 after a valiant 3-year battle with cancer.
Robert was the beloved son of Lawrence Dotolo and the late Lorraine Dotolo; brother of Cheryl (Mario) Ruggeri, Mark (Lisa) Dotolo and Thomas (Heather) Dotolo; and uncle to Christopher Ruggeri and Avery Dotolo.

Bob graduated from Westerly High School in 1986. Shortly after his graduation, he and his brother Tom founded Dotolo Brothers Masonry. He was a skilled and talented mason who loved his craft and excelled at it.

Bob was an active member of the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Wakefield. His faith was important to him and it helped him greatly during his illness.

Some of his favorite things were physical training, playing golf, biking, hiking and enjoying the outdoors. He loved his dogs and was a big fan of the New York Giants/Yankees. Bob will be truly missed by all who knew him.
