Radomir Petrovich

Radomir Petrovich Radomir, a beloved husband, father, and gentleman-scholar, was born on June 21st, 1936, in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, to Siniša and Kosara Petrovich. On October 3rd, 2021, he passed away, leaving behind cherished memories and a profound impact on those who knew him.

Radomir is survived by his devoted wife of 53 years, Helen Miriam Petrovich (Steele), their daughter Sophia, son-in-law Chris, and grandchildren Magdalena and Cormac. His loss is mourned by relatives residing in Belgrade, Cleveland, Boston, and Tacoma, as well as by dear family friends in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Radomir’s dedication to his loved ones was unwavering and his absence will be deeply felt.

Having obtained an engineering degree from the University of Belgrade, Radomir journeyed to the United States in 1964 to pursue a PhD in geochemistry at Yale University. Following his studies, he ventured into teaching, spending several years at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. However, it was in Bartlesville where he truly made his mark, dedicating 43 years to his work at Philips 66 Petroleum Research Center. In 2020, Radomir and Miriam relocated to St. Anne’s Court in Fredericton to be closer to their daughter’s family.

Renowned for his vast knowledge and love for various subjects, Radomir’s intellectual pursuits encompassed nature, classical literature, and music. Among his many passions were ancient history, philosophy, Shakespeare, political science, philology, and world religions. He possessed a sharp mind, a quick wit, and an almost photographic memory for details. Despite his scholarly endeavors, Radomir’s role as a devoted husband and father was always at the forefront. His stories, insights, and, above all, his kindness will forever be missed.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, October 7th, at 1:30 pm, at St. Anne’s Chapel of Ease (Christ Church Parish Church) located at 245 Westmorland St, Fredericton. A reception will follow to honor Radomir’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making memorial donations to Nature Trust New Brunswick in Radomir’s memory.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Bishops Funeral Home & Crematorium, located at 540 Woodstock Road.
