Robert J. McAvoy

Robert John “Bob” McAvoy, of Warminster, died peacefully on Saturday, March 13, 2021.  He was 88.

Robert was the beloved husband of 58 years to Agnes M. Ehmann McAvoy.

Born in Philadelphia, PA he was the son of the late Robert Vincent and Theresa Corbett McAvoy, and brother to the late Frances Mary Hammill, and Delia “Dea” Monroe.

Bob was a proud graduate of West Catholic High School, Class of 1950.  He spent his youth summers on the beach in Wildwood, where his mother ran a seasonal guest house.  Following high school, he served with the Air Force in Korea before returning to Pennsylvania to earn B.S. and M. S. degrees in mechanical/aerospace engineering at Drexel University.   His career was dedicated to the US Navy as an expert in fracture mechanics (keeping the planes flying without the wings falling off), but his passion was leading the NADC golf league until the time of his retirement in 1992.  An avid Philly sports fan, he was an inaugural Flyers season ticket holder and enjoyed attending Flyer victory parades.  He frequented Cape May with the love of his life, Agnes, during his retirement years.

In addition to his wife Agnes, Robert is survived by his loving and devoted children, Kathleen M. Donnelly and her husband Daniel of Vienna, VA, and Michael R. McAvoy and his wife Atara, of New Orleans, LA.  He is also survived by his beloved grandsons: Patrick, Kevin, Jack, and Braden. In addition to his parents, Robert is preceded in death by sisters Frances Mary Hammill, and Delia “Dea” Monroe.

Services and interment will be private.
