Robert “Bob” Hurd, Jr. of Milford, passed away at Bayhealth – Kent General, on Thursday, August 6, 2020, at the age of 80.  He was the son of E. Elizabeth and Robert Hurd Sr.

Bob was a machine operator for Steiner Company in Milford for many years.

Always willing to help others, Bob was a kind and friendly man.  He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
