Obituary for Robert S. Tannebring

Robert Southwick Tannebring died at home on April 11, 2018 after a brief illness. Robert, born March 26, 1924, was son of Ruth and Chester Tannebring. He was married in 1949 for 60 years to his devoted wife Nancy Norton and resided in Beverly, Massachusetts for most of his life. Robert graduated from Governor Dummer Academy, Babson College, and served in the Navy in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He was a devoted father to Betsy and John, a doting Grandfather to Paula and George Tannebring, and Jeffrey and Michael Meagher and an inspirational Great-Grandfather to William and Trent Meagher. Robert was dedicated, loyal and immensely proud of his family and had an intellectual curiosity that was rivaled by few. In his spirit, we shall ask that you not speak of him in the past, rather to focus on his legacy as it carries forth into tomorrow. It is a life not lost, but a life profoundly important for his family to celebrate in order to discover the greatness of the future. May we all have 94 years to make such a positive impact in the world. The services will be held privately. Arrangements by Campbell Funeral Home. Contributions may be made in his memory to the Kaplan Family Hospice House, c/o Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan St., Danvers, MA 01923. Information, directions, condolences are available at
