Robert Patrick Brennan, 77, died on Saturday December 7, 2019, in Stuart Florida. Bob passed
after a short battle with Leukemia.

Bob began his career in the construction industry in New York City in 1961 where he started as
a sheet metal worker. As a so called “Tin Knocker,” Bob worked on the construction of the
original World Trade Center from 1968 to 1972. Bob held various positions in the industry over
the years until 1987 when he founded R.P. Brennan General Contractors and Construction
Managers, a full-service general contractor headquartered in New York City. The Company
continues to prosper today under the stewardship of his son Michael.

Bob was deeply proud of his Irish immigrant heritage. His mother Mary, born in Athea Ireland,
immigrated to the United States in 1928. His father, John was a first-generation U.S. citizen.
John’s parents were born on the west coast of Ireland and arrived in the U.S. at the end of the
19th century.

Bob cherished his family and was the bedrock of love and connectedness for his immediate and
extended family. He leaves a legacy of the virtue and importance of family that is held dear by
all that survive him.

Bob enjoyed the game of golf and over the years had the great fortune to play many rounds
with friends and colleagues at some of the finest courses available. However, what Bob
enjoyed most was playing with his children and grandchildren where he was a considerate
mentor and enthusiastic supporter.

Bob will forever be remembered for his big heart and the kindness he shared with friends and
family across generations. Bob is survived by his wife Barbara, the love of his life for 59 years;
his brother John; his sister Eileen; his children Robert, Michael, and Jennifer; 7 grandchildren
and many nephews and nieces. Bob was predeceased by his parents Mary and John; and his
sister May.

A Memorial Service will be held at O’Brien Funeral Home, 505 Burnt Tavern Road, Brick
Township, NJ on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at 4:00 pm. Visitation will begin at 3:00 pm. Following the Service, a Celebration
of Life Repast will be held starting at 5:00 pm. On January 24th an additional service will be held
at Mariner Sands Golf Club, Stuart, FL.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America or the Macular
Degeneration Foundation.
