Robert James Politis, 52, of Bristol, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 6, 2018, at his home.
Robert was born on July 28, 1965, in New Britain, son of Richard James Politis and the late Gwendolyn (Post) Politis. He was a talented carpenter who owned and operated his own business, Diversified Building, for many years. He was very talented artistically and passed that on to his children. Robert had a profound love of the outdoors, especially for hiking and camping. He loved to cook and was a master at barbecuing. He was a man who had a silly sense of humor and was always able to make people laugh and smile. Above all, Robert took great joy and pride in his two children, Linnea and Robert. He will be deeply missed by everyone with whom he had crossed paths.
Robert is survived by his father, Richard Politis and his stepmother, Charlotte Politis (Plainville); his two children, Linnea Politis (Middletown), and Robert James Politis II (Plainville); his sisters, Ronette Politis (Wolcott), Melissa Barley (Maryland), and Sarah Blake (Plainville); and several nieces, nephews, extended family, and countless friends. He was predeceased by his mother and his brother, Richard Politis.
