Bob Sedler, a loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on April 16, 2023. He is survived by his wife, Patricia Sedler, his sons Robert Sedler (Aimee), Richard Sedler (Pam), Dean Sedler (Cathy), and his daughter Sandra Thornell (Jeff), grandsons Andrew Sedler, Caleb Sedler, Aaron Sedler, Paxton Sedler, Cody Sedler, Kyle Sedler and granddaughter Carly Sedler. Surviving siblings brother Daniel Sedler and sister Nancy Sedler Martin. Predeceased by sisters Nina Swift and Shirley Sedler and brother Edward Sedler. Born in Middleton Massachusetts, on July 31, 1938, He was the fourth of six children born to Walter and Mary Sedler. Despite not having a formal education, Bob was a remarkable man who accomplished more than most. At the age of 23, he purchased a cottage and designed and built an attached home, serving as the general contractor. The house was frequently featured in home tours throughout the 1970s.
Bob and Pat went on to start a successful antique co-op mall in a sprawling Victorian house just outside Georgetown Center called Sedler’s Antique Village. Among the first of its kind, the shop became well known throughout the region, attracting visitors from all over. Georgetown was commonly known as the Antique Capital of Massachusetts and Bob took great pride in his contributions to the town’s reputation and its recognition as such. After over 41 years of operation, Bob and Pat sold the shop and retired.
Bob was no stranger to physical labor and hard work, always leading by example. Despite a lifetime of back and knee pain, he never let it stop him from making improvements to the building and the business he loved. He took pride in the shop, with over 10,000 square feet of space and it was always bustling with visitors. He even had a Conestoga wagon that he would fit with oxen for town parades.
Bob had a great sense of humor and loved both telling and hearing stories. He was always prepared to tell it like it is and believed in honesty and trust. He would do anything for anyone who needed his help.
Bob loved his shop and his work so much that he never considered it a job. He will be missed by all who knew him, but his memory will live on through his family, friends, and the community.
Family and friends are kindly invited to attend Bob's visitation on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, from 4 to 7pm in the Conte - Giamberardino Funeral Home, 14 Pleasant Street, Georgetown. All other services will be private. For those who wish, Bob may be remembered through donations to The Alzheimer's Research Association, 225 North Michigan Avenue, FL. 17, Chicago, IL 60601.
