Robert “Bobby” Brahy
Robert “Bobby” Brahy, age 57, of Newark, DE, passed away Friday, November 6, 2015 after a long battle with Dementia.
Bobby was the son of the late Nicholas P. Brahy and Alberta (Andrascik) Brahy.
Bobby was a 1979 graduate of Meadowood School in Wilmington, DE.
Bobby retired in 2013 from Chimes Incorporated in Newark, DE.
In his younger years, Bobby participated in Special Olympics track, basketball and swimming events. He was an accomplished swimmer, winning 56 Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
Bobby was an avid sports fan. Football was his passion, although, he often “switched teams” based on their winning statistics. He will fondly be remembered for his “who’s my team” statement. Bobby had a vivacious personality. His orneriness and wit will be missed by all. He loved music, dancing and hosting his yearly Super Bowl party for his Chimes family.
In addition to his parents, Bobby is predeceased by his sister, Bonita A. Brahy.
Bobby is survived by his brother, Nicholas P. Brahy Jr. (Diane) of Elkton, MD. His sister Maryann B. Sammy of Newark, DE. His aunt Elinor Combs of Toms River, NJ, nephew Andrew P. Brahy. His nieces, Stacy L. Wood (Adam), Kelly M. Brahy, Keri A. Nicholson, cousins and his Chimes Family.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to Chimes Incorporated at the address above.
The family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the nursing staff of Chimes, the staff and his roommates (his family) from Barrett’s Run. Your kindness and love shown to Bobby over the years will never be forgotten.
