CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – Mr. Robert J. "Bob" Jalbert 53, of Cary, N.C and Peabody, died Saturday, December 15, 2018 unexpectedly at his home.

Born in Salem, he was the son of the late Robert J. Sr. and Madeline (Reppucci) Jalbert. He was raised and educated in Salem and was a graduate of Salem High School, class of 1983. He continued his education at UMASS- Lowell where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Engineering.

Mr. Jalbert was a trained and expert Adhesive Chemist and worked for many years with Bostik, and more recently with Henkel Adhesive Technologies.

Always a smile on his face and a laugh to be had, Bob's easy-going personality endeared him to many. He enjoyed playing softball as a younger man for Lonnie's and in the Men's Softball League and made many friends as a member of the Men's Bowling League. He was a zealous Boston sports fan and loved to cheer on his favorite Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots. He had a passion for the outdoors and would take long walks to enjoy mother nature's beauty. His greatest joys were his ability to make others laugh and smile, and above all else his children. He was a loving father who will be deeply missed.

Bob is survived by his daughter, Brooke Jalbert of Peabody, his son, Derek Jalbert of Peabody and many extended family members, including his special cousins, whom he considered siblings, Margaret Reppucci and her partner Alberta Cowles of Florida, Maryann Neff and her husband Warren of Florida and Anthony Reppucci and his wife Sallye of Alabama.
