Andover, MA - After an almost two-year battle with cancer, Robert S. Weldin, Jr. died peacefully on July 2, 2018, at Kaplan House hospice in Danvers.
Bob was born in Wilmington, Del., to Robert and June Weldin. After graduating high school as valedictorian in 1977, Bob put himself through undergrad and graduate school at the University of Delaware in Newark and the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He earned a Bachelor's and two Master's in economics and was one dissertation shy of a PhD.
He met Carol Jamback Weldin in 1986 and married her in 1988. Bob and Carol had a happy marriage, and would have celebrated their thirtieth wedding anniversary this year.
Bob worked for many years as a consulting economist, but decided to make a career change in 2003 and completed the MINT Program. Bob began teaching math at Lawrence High School and completed another master’s degree in mathematical teaching from Boston University. Bob taught at LHS for nine years, and then joined the staff at Andover High School in 2012, where he taught until May of this year.
Teaching truly made Bob happy. He spoke with pride about his students and attended sporting events and school plays. Bob worked this year until he couldn’t anymore. He had every intention of returning to school in the fall.
Bob was an avid reader and was on a first name basis with many of the staff members at Memorial Hall Library. Bob read comic books throughout his life and was a huge fan. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of sports facts and loved rooting for all Boston teams.
Bob was very proud of his family, and was an engaged and present parent for his two children. Bob was also an active member of the North Parish of North Andover Unitarian Universalist Church. He volunteered there in many capacities over the years.
Bob is survived by his wife, Carol J. Weldin and his children, Amanda and Doug; his mother, June Weldin and his sister Sandra Myers and her two children Diana and Billy Myers. He was predeceased by his father, Robert S. Weldin, Sr.
Celebration of Life Service at 11 a.m. on September 8 at North Parish of North Andover. All are welcome to attend.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bob's name may be made to North Parish of North Andover.
