Obituary

Robert Stephen Priest of Arlington, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, December 8th, 2020 at the Lahey Clinic Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington. He was one day shy of his 72nd birthday.

The son of the late Al "Red" Priest - former NE Middleweight boxing champion, and Yvonne (McGarry) Priest; he was born in Cambridge, raised and educated in Waltham, and resided in Arlington for most of his life.
A graduate of Waltham High School with the Class of 1966, he earned his engineering degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology, and attained his Master’s Degree in Education at Cambridge College.

Robert began his career as a nuclear engineer at Stone & Webster but ultimately found his calling as a public servant, spending 30+ years serving in a variety of roles - from Correctional Officer to Director of Treatment - for the Massachusetts Department of Corrections.

After retirement Robert was an avid golfer which earned him the nickname Ace, and he enjoyed playing cards with his family (who all cheated relentlessly according to each other).

And if you spent any time at Cornelia Warren Field in Waltham back in the day, you may remember that Robert was the reigning Home Run King when he played on the Atron city league softball team.

He was predeceased by his brother Alfred I. Priest, Jr.

Robert is survived by his wife Joan (Kelleher) Priest, daughter Katie and her husband Chris of Amsterdam, his sister Marjorie DiCarlo and her husband, Dino of FL, his sister Cynthia (Priest) Tamburro of Weston, his sister-in-law Dolores (Juliano) Priest, his brother-in-law Dale Tamburro, and his brother-in-law William Gallagher. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews and a loving extended family.

For the safety of those we love and care about during this difficult time, and for those who wish to pay their respects to Robert and his family, can do so in accordance with CDC, Federal, State & Local guidelines in the Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons Memorial, 773 Moody Street, Waltham, MA., on Tuesday, December 15th at 10am. A Funeral Service in celebration of Robert's life will follow at 12pm followed by his burial at Saint Joseph's Cemetery in West Roxbury.

The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to NEADS World Class Service Dogs (neads.org) in Robert Priest's name.
