It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that Robert Emmett Carew, 89, of Wethersfield, peacefully passed away Wednesday, March 6, 2019 in St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center Hartford. Robert “Bob” was born in Wethersfield on June 10, 1929. He was the son of the late John J. Carew, Sr. and the late Mary (Driscoll) Carew. He served in the Air National Guard and was an associate member of the Wethersfield Fire Department. At one time he held the position of Lieutenant in the department. He retired from the Town of Wethersfield after 37 years of service as a Maintainer. Bob was proud of his town, his country, his “Irish” heritage, his faith, and his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed landscaping and working in his yard. He loved the Red Sox and Notre Dame Football. He was beyond thrilled to see the Red Sox win the World Series this past year.

Strong, Jr. and his wife Irene, of Wethersfield, his two nephews Jack Carew and his wife Susan, of Englewood, Florida and Wakefield, Rhode Island and James Carew and his wife Sharon, of Wethersfield. He also leaves nieces Kathy Carew of Wethersfield and Mary Dakin and her husband Lance, of East Hartford.
