Robert P. Marois Obituary

Robert (Bob) Marois, of York, ME, passed away peacefully on January 16, 2024 after several years of declining health. Born in Berlin, NH, on November 26, 1942, he was raised in Gorham, NH, graduating as the salutatorian from Gorham High School in 1960. He completed his studies in mechanical engineering at the University of New Hampshire, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1965.


Bob married Janet (Campagna) Marois in 1968 and they enjoyed 38 wonderful years together until her passing in 2006. The couple established their family home in York, ME, and there Bob and Jan appreciated the simple moments of life. They cherished daily walks along the beach, dining at both new and favorite restaurants and frequently embarking on memorable travel excursions. Bob’s happiness was truly found in the warmth of their shared experiences. He had a particular fondness for theater and was also an avid reader.


Bob dedicated his entire career to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, ME, where he earned respect for his significant contributions to submarine design. Bob never lost his passion for submarines and often shared memories of his time at the shipyard well after retirement, reflecting with particular fondness on his work travels to Scotland.


In addition to his wife, Bob is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Ramona Marois. He is survived by his two daughters, Kristine Smith of Nashua, NH, and Karen Shaw of Scarborough, ME. He leaves behind four grandchildren: Lauren and Kevin Smith, and Meghan and Ethan Shaw. Bob is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Karla and Gerd Printz of Lincroft, NJ, and his brother and sister-in-law, David and Susan Marois of Queensbury, NY, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
