Robert (Bob) L. Carey, of Chappaqua and formerly of Holbrook, Mass., passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 20 surrounded by his loving family at the age of 84.

Born in Dorchester, Mass., for many years he had owned and operated Mr. Sub with locations in Brockton and Quincy, Mass. He had a passion for music and singing and was extremely talented; however, he was also a devout family man and spending time with his family brought him the most joy.

As a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, Bob will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to have known him. Bob was the beloved husband of the late Vittoria Carey; dearly loved father of Kimberly Carey and her husband, Milan Tyler, of Chappaqua; cherished “Papa” to J. Chase Tyler III and Mia Carey Tyler, both of New York; dear uncle of Gene Persampieri of California, Diane Grosman of Florida and Lorrie Borden of Charlestown, Mass., who he loved as his own; son of the late Ruth Francione; and brother-in-law of Dominic Persampieri Jr. of Brockton. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and friends, especially his karaoke compadres who brought much joy to his later years.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at a later date.
