PORTLAND Robert V. Honan, 95, formerly of South Portland, died peacefully on Thanksgiving Morning, November 24, 2016, at Seventy-Five State Street. He was born in Portland on June 8, 1921, a son of the late Martin and Ellen (Brogan) Honan. He attended St. Dominics Elementary School and graduated from Cheverus High School in 1937 and Portland Junior College. During World War II, Mr. Honan honorably served in the United States Navy and was stationed at Pearl Harbor. He worked for the United States Treasury Department for 40 years. Affectionately known as Uncle Bobby to his 21 nieces, nephews, and their families, they were the children he never had. He was interested in their lives and stayed current with their latest endeavors and accomplishments. An avid reader of the Portland Press Herald, he could engage in conversations from local and national sports to local and national politics and current events. He was a loyal and dedicated brother, uncle and friend. He will be greatly missed, especially, on holidays and birthdays, where he was either at his brother Jimmys home in Falmouth or a nieces home in Portland. A devout Catholic, he volunteered many hours at St. John the Evangelist Church in South Portland. When he moved back to Portland, and the neighborhood of his childhood, he was a regular communicant at Mercy Hospital, walking to daily Mass until his passing. Over the last 5 years, Mr. Honan had been a resident of Seventy-Five State Street where he developed several strong friendships. He was predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Annette Sylvester Honan in 2011; brothers, Martin Honan in 1973 and John Honan in 2003; sisters, Margaret Honan Marshall in 1995 and Helen Honan Gorham in 1997. He is survived by his brother, James E. Honan and his wife Mary T. of Falmouth and 21 nieces, nephews and their families.
