NORTH ATTLEBORO – Robert J. Vandal, Jr., 54, of North Attleboro passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at home.

Born January 28, 1965 in Attleboro, he was a son of Robert Vandal, Sr. and his companion Irene Tyler of North Attleboro and the late Mary Lou (Jordan) Vandal.

Robert was a lifelong resident of North Attleboro and a 1983 graduate of Bishop Feehan High School.  He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Northeastern University in 1991.

He worked for Ernst and Young for many years and later in the accounting department at Crabtree & Evelyn.

He was an avid fan of the Red Sox and an even bigger fan of the Patriots.  He also loved hot sauce and music.  One of Robbie’s great pleasures in life was his poker group that met monthly for the past 25 years.

Dunn of Pittsburg, PA, Molly Dunn of North Attleboro, and Gabrielle, Liam and Kiera Clark all of Swampscott; and his godmother Claire Lacerda of West Bridgewater.

Robbie’s family wishes to give special thanks to neighbors Mike and Judy Rayburg for their constant and unwavering support.
