ROBERT R. DRUMMOND – 84, died peacefully on Friday, April 3, 2020 at Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center following a cancer related illness. Bob, as he was known to friends and family, was born in Newark, NJ and grew up in Irvington where he graduated Irvington High School, with the class of 1953. He graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering from Newark College of Engineering (NJIT), with the class of 1957. After receiving an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps, Bob worked 42-years for the US Government at Picatinny Arsenal, Bell Laboratories in Whippany as an On-site Government Rep., and finally at Fort Monmouth until his retirement in 1999. Bob then worked a short time for several government contractors including CACI assisting with the relocation of Fort Monmouth in NJ to Aberdeen Proving Ground in MD.
In his private life, Bob Drummond was an avid tennis player who played 4-5 times a week with the Night Owls group at New Shrewsbury Racquet Club through February 2020. He was known there to friends and club members as “Dress-shirt Bobby” because of his tendency to play tennis in a button-down shirt, and also for his reputation of beating players a fraction of his age.
Bob Drummond was predeceased in 2010 by his wife of 51-years Mrs. Gail Drummond, and is survived by his son-Brian Drummond, his daughter Lisa Lucas, his son-in-law David Lucas, grand daughters Sydney Lucas and Emily Lucas, his cousins Janet Happel, Susan King and their families, his girlfriend of 5-years Ms. Sandy Ransom, and his sister-in-law Pam Siano and her family.
In compliance with current NJ requirements, no formal funeral service will be held at this time. The family will announce a memorial service to be held at a later date as state restrictions are revised.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the O’Brien Funeral Home, Wall

I worked with Bob during the 1980s at PM TMDE. He was a nice guy. We bumped into each other numerous times over the year around Ocean Twp. I always enjoyed chatting with him. He had an upbeat personality. My condolences to hs family.

Robert (Bob) Drummond, my Love and my Friend.
I will always remember the first day we met. His zest for life, and the love he expressed for his family, showed me that he was a person I wanted to know and create a lasting relationship with.
The fun we had together led to many memorable moments, from Weekly Dancing, Walks, Listening to Music on the Boardwalks, Traveling to sharing and enjoying both of our family events together.
I will miss him.
Lisa, Brian, Dave, Sydney and Emily, I express my deepest sympathy to you, he loved you all so much.
Please know that he will always have a place in my heart.
Sandy Ransom

Dear Friend, & Uno card game rival.🏆😁.
Thank you for some great memories, and for always keeping a big smile on my mother's face. This is not goodbye, it's just a slight pause. Until we meet again my friend for another game of Uno.
Love, Candace Mills.

Brian and family,
Sending our deepest sympathies with your Dad's passing. I so enjoyed playing tennis with your Dad (and you) over the years and learned so much from your Dad not only regarding the game of tennis but life itself. He will be truly missed and always loved and remembered. Wishing all the best to you and your entire family.

Bill and Sue Newell
