Robert G. Bridgman, of Bay Island in South Pasadena, Florida passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on April 2, 2016 in his 86th year. Beloved husband of 40 years to Jacqueline Bridgman. Cherished father to Wendy (Paul) and Shelley (Steve). Beloved ‘Pappy’ to Coleman, Robin and Carley. Predeceased by his brother, Don Bridgman (Alice). He will be sorely missed by his sister June Wagner (John), plus his many nieces and nephews. Bob began his career as a jeweller in Toronto, Canada prior to starting Bridgman Importing, a wholesale gift company. He expanded his company to the United States, which allowed he and Jackie the dream of living in Florida. He was an avid golfer and had many friends in the golfing community. Latterly, he rediscovered his love of barbershop quartets. A member of Barbershop Harmony Society for 70 years, he recently reconnected with many barbershop friends from years gone by.

In loving memory and in lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice of Florida or Harmonize for Speech Canada ( would be greatly appreciated.
