Robert John Mudge,
51, of Punta Gorda, Florida, died unexpectedly, Tuesday, June 14, 2011. He was the son of William C. and Carol (Perry) Mudge of North Kingstown.
Bob made his living as a boat and auto mechanic. As a youth, he was a resident of North Kingstown and Jamestown. For the last 25 years, Bob made his home in Punta Gorda.
In addition to his parents, Bob is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Robert L. and Stacey Cahoon, a grandson, Noah R. Cahoon, a sister, Suzanne Zile and her children, Melanie and William Zile, Grandmothers, Rita C. Perry and Mildred Mudge, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Growing up, Bob delighted in nature, collecting reptiles and building elaborate underground forts. The 5 foot black racer will always live in family folklore as it resided preserved in the basement. As an adult, he enjoyed the company of friends, whether camping, boating, or fishing.
Rest in peace, Bob.
A private service will be held at a later date. Donations in Bob's memory may be made to Hospice Care, VNA of New England, 51 Health Lane, Warwick, RI 02886.
