Obituary

Robert “Coach” Andreatta Jr., 94 of North Adams, MA died unexpectedly Saturday June 5, 2021 at Berkshire Medical Center. He was born in North Adams, MA on June 12, 1926, a son of Robert and Pia (Cellana) Andreatta. He attended local schools.

Bobby served the city he loved and was employed before retirement by the city of North Adams maintaining the custodial services in its police department. He was beloved by all within the department as hard working, dedicated, and generous, all with a warming sense of humor. Before that, he worked as a printer at Arnold Print Works in Adams and for some time in Cranston, RI. It is here that he earned the nickname “Coach,” from those that apprenticed under his artful techniques of roller printing and built life lasting friendships. But distance did not keep he and Nancy from taking the trip back each weekend to his beloved city, his family, and his true home.

In most recent time many a people came to know Bobby in his retired years working alongside his nephew at Andreatta Glass. So much so, many of the patrons came to believe he was the shop’s proprietor as he recounted the plays with them of Red Sox games from the evening before.

Affectionately known as Bobby, Uncle Bob, Unc, Uncle Pal, Unkie, Big Bob, Coach, and often “Joe” by his loving wife Nancy of 72 years will be deeply missed, his spirt will live on in all the family.

Bobby lived life with true “Gusto.” He was an eternal optimist and a diehard Schlitz promoter. “Coach” could be found holding court at “The T.” If you were lucky, you shared in one of the many polenta dinners over the years that he enthusiastically stirred for his friends and family. You could find him many nights at his kitchen table in nightlong games of solitaire.

He was a communicant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish and was a former member of the Sons of Italy. Bobby was an avid sports fan of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics. In his younger years, he played softball and semi-pro football with the St. Anthony Crusaders.

Survivors include his wife, Nancy Josephine (Giusti) Andreatta whom he married on November 5, 1949 and one brother- Leo Andreatta of North Adams. He also leaves many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and cousins, all of whom he has made a profound effect upon their lives. His brother, Bruno Andreatta is deceased.
