Robert J. (Buddy) Wooster passed away at Good Samaritan Hospital November 30, 2021 after a brief illness. Buddy was the son of the late Edward R. Wooster and Leona Stanton. He was raised by his father and his father's wife, Theresa Wooster. Buddy was predeceased (2004) by his beloved wife of 51 years, Grace Ann Kent Wooster. Buddy was born in North Easton and remained a lifetime resident until his death. He and Grace were married in 1953 and Buddy graduated from Stonehill College in 1958. Together they raised seven children.

Buddy was an excellent all-round athlete and outstanding baseball player at Oliver Ames High School. He also played for the Easton Huskies. After graduating from Stonehill, Buddy taught English for more than thirty years at Oliver Ames High School. During that time, he pursued his passion for baseball by coaching the varsity baseball team. In 1970, while still teaching, Buddy became the Executive Director of Frothingham Park. There, he worked tirelessly to maintain the fields, upgrade the playground, and improve the space by planting many trees. Buddy took up running in his late thirties and especially loved running on trails and green spaces in town. He completed the Boston Marathon in 1975 with his childhood friend, Joe Connolly.

Buddy worked on videos in which he researched and explored town history and was a member of the Easton Historical Society. He co-authored A Beautiful Image of Historic Easton with Jonathan Jackson Coe in 2019.

In his later years, Buddy enjoyed taking walks with his dog, reading, and spending time with his 19 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. His family and his faith were the cornerstones of a life well lived. Buddy was a communicant of Immaculate Conception Church in Easton. He is survived by his seven children and their families: Anne Wooster Drury, Rosemary Duphily (Bruce), Bob Wooster (Donna), Nancy Holmes (Rob), Kathy Canavan, Tom Wooster (Evelyn), Beth Pearsons (Scott). He had a very special friend, Connie Minot, and they enjoyed spending time together.

Buddy's funeral mass will be held Saturday, December 4th at 11:00 a.m. in the Immaculate Conception Church, 193 Main St. N. Easton. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. Burial will be held privately at a later date. Visiting hours will be held at the Kane Funeral Home and Cremation Services 605 Washington St. Easton on Friday, December 3rd from 4 to 7 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Red Cross or Frothingham Memorial Park Corp., 18 Day St., N. Easton, MA 02356.
