Obituary

On Friday, February 7, 2020, Robert “Bob” Caulfield of Stockholm, New Jersey, passed away in the comfort of his home at the age of 74.

Bob was born on July 6, 1945, in Scotland to Barbara and James Caulfield. He graduated from Stow College of Engineering and received his degree from Jordan Hill College in Glasgow. He started work as a machinist for Rolls Royce and then joined the Scottish Boys Club, eventually coming to the U.S. as a camp counselor in Wisconsin. In 1970, he immigrated to Toronto and married before moving to La Porte, Indiana. For 36 years, he devoted his career to tool and die making, first at National Can and then at Allstate Can in New Jersey, where he raised two children and resided for much of his life.

Bob had a passion for all things fishing. He also enjoyed carving fish decoy folk art, painting landscapes, and hunting for Indian arrowheads. Known for his charming Scottish accent and silly spirit, he was a fighter who courageously overcame more in his last years than most people face in a lifetime.

Bob was preceded in death by his father, James Caulfield; mother, Barbara Caulfield; and brother, James Caulfield. He is survived by his daughter Emily Caulfield and son Daniel (Melanie) Caulfield, as well as his former wife Nancy Caulfield and their two grandchildren, Lily and Margaret Guthrie.

Bob wished to spend eternity where the tides could take him to Scotland and back again to swim with the fishes and split his time between his first and last home. His ashes will be scattered in the sea at a later date in a private ceremony with his immediate family.

As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations in Bob’s honor may be made to the American Littoral Society at www.littoralsociety.org/donate to help protect and preserve our coastal waters.

The first time I met Bob it seemed he was someone I’d known for forever and felt like a family member immediately. He was always genuinely interested in everyone’s well being, a full hearted man. We wish him to Rest In Peace and pass our condolences to Emily, Maggie, Lily, Dan and the rest of the family. Thinking of you all xxx

You happen to be visiting friends in Washington DC, and you know your Godfather - who you can sort of recollect from an early age - lives a couple of hours away outside New York. It goes without saying that my friends took a back seat whilst I jumped on the Amtrak towards New York.

On arrival, the love shown by Bobby and Nancy was infectious. There followed a whirlwind tour of the City. I even made it up the Empire State Building having photos with the iconic Twin Towers in the background. Little did he know, that I suffered from vertigo! I hid my fear well, as I was overwhelmed by the sheer love he had shown, to the boy he nicknamed - The Milky Bar Kid - when asked to be my Godfather in 1968. He was, for Mum and Dad, the natural choice, having been their Best Man.

Daniel and Emily were introduced and from there the bond with the whole family was complete. It remains very much in place today.

Time spent with them all, at home, endless laughing, trips down memory lane, a BBQ outside with the sight of a visiting bear seen as normal (as the boy from Scotland, now living in England jolted with fear) to further trips to downtown NYC showed that his love for me and life was infectious.

Sat now in Turkey, thousands of miles away, grieving - struggling to contain the tears - I know that Daniel, Emily and the girls will have revived nothing more than boundless amounts of genuine love and laughs from their Dad and Grandfather. Cherish every moment. Remember every daft moment. Every laugh. And be Proud of the man, known to me as Uncle Bobby xxxxx
