Robert (Bob) Edward Tilden of Scituate MA passed away peacefully at age 80 on July 28, 2023, following a brief illness, surrounded by family at the Pat Roch Hospice House in Hingham, MA. Bob was born on October 27, 1942, and grew up in Cohasset MA, graduating Cohasset High School in 1960 and receiving his associate degree in food distribution at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA in 1964. He served in the US Navy from 1965-1967 and was based on the USS Enterprise, where he traveled the world. He then began a 45-year career in the packaging industry.
