LACONIA — Robert Lester Hurd Jr., of Baldwin St., left his earthly body on July 16, 2013, at the young age of 56.
He was the son of Richard and Patricia (Sidney) Fogg. Born in Laconia on April 27, 1957, and raised in Meredith, Robert spent all but a few years of his life living in the Lakes Region of NH. He spent a short time in Long Beach, CA and always voiced the desire of a future return to the city.
Robert attended the Inter-Lakes School, in Meredith and was an avid employee at L.W. Packard and Company, in Ashland, NH.
Robert suffered more than his share of physical pain, but mostly handled it stoically by reminding himself that the more bad karma he worked out in his life, the less he would face in the next. He also focused on his good fortune, especially that which brought his wife, Diane, into his life. He often said that he could never have found a more loving and compatible woman. Likewise, his son Robert, Daughter Angela, son-in-law Jacob, and grandsons, Bryce, Pacey and Lucas taught him more than they ever will learn from him.
Left behind to remember Robert are his wife, Diane M. (Cochran) Hurd, of Laconia, children, Angela (Hurd) and Jacob Wilson, of Laconia, Robert Hurd of Holderness, grandchildren, Bryce and Pacey Wilson of Laconia, Lucas Hurd of Center Harbor, his mother , Patricia Chamberlain, of Meredith, brother, David Hurd of Center Harbor, sisters, Ann Kent of Manchester, Beverly Tibbets of Florida, many nieces and nephews.
Robert was predeceased by his father, Richard Q. Fogg of Meredith and his birth father, Robert L. Hurd Sr, of Meredith.
If you are moved to remember Robert in some monetary way, please consider a donation to fund his final memorial and burial. Donations will be handled by Angela Wilson, 29 Baldwin St. Apt. #2, Laconia, NH. 03246.
