Robert Vander May


Robert Vander May was born in Little Falls, NJ to Ethel (Velzen) and Barney Vander May.


He proudly served in the United States Navy during World War II. Later, he attended Westminster College where he met Dorothy, his beloved wife of 63 years.


They had 3 children: Linda, David, and Jill, who consider their father the greatest man who ever lived.


He was a member of the Parsippany Presbyterian Church where he served as both an elder and a deacon. He was president of the Passaic Valley Rotary and was a Paul Harris Fellow.


He leaves behind his two grandchildren, the loves of his life, Dr. Steve Linden of Boston and doctoral candidate Julie Linden of Davis, California. He also leaves behind his dear sisters Frances Van Halsema and Gladys De Vos and many loving nieces and nephews.


A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 on Saturday, March 31, 2012 at the Parsippany Presbyterian Church, 1675 Route 46 East, Parsippany NJ.


In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to the Rockaway Neck First Aid Squad, PO Box 41, Lake Hiawatha, NJ 07034.

Jill you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you the strength, peace and comfort during this very difficult time. After reading the obituary, I understand why you cherished your Dad, his type is very few and in-between...he sounds like an amazing man. Cherish the precious memories of him.
