I am already missing my weekly talks with you, my dear cousin! You were always so positive about everything even though you were dealt a hard hand at the end there! Sharp as a tack until the very end with a wonderful memory! It was always a joy to visit you and talk with you! A wonderful long life till 93. – glad you were able to make that last birthday! May you rest in peace, cousin Robert, joining your family in Heaven.
You will always be remembered as a wonderful person and a great neighbor . I can still see you out there riding your bicycle no matter what the weather ! I enjoyed having you join my family for Christmas eve in the past and we will certainly all miss you and your smile. Rest in peace Jayne Cusano Barese
Phil, Todd and I always enjoyed our visits and phone calls with you. You had so much family history and stories that you shared with us. We loved hearing them especially, the ones about traveling to Maine and Worthley Pond to visit Dad and Uncle Rodney (your cousin). Dad (Richard) and Uncle Rodney also enjoyed and appreciated the calls. You are missed. Love, Phil and Gloria
Bob was best man for my father John D, Morrison Jr. (131 Wakefield St., Hamden) at his wedding to my mother Mary Parker. Bob and my father attended Spring Glen Elementary and Hamden High School together; they \volunteered for the military together as well – Bob in the Navy and my father in the Army Air Corps. They were fast friends. I remember Bob fondly when as a young child he would stop by to see our family when we visited Hamden to see my beloved grandparents, John Morrison Sr. and Florence Morrison. Bob always had a twinkle in his eye and warm friendly words for me and my two sisters. He was a kind and generous man. I will always remember him fondly – especially his easy way with us as kids and his kind and friendly way with my parents and grandparents. I wish him peace in his passing and really hope that he and my father meet up in heaven. I’m thinking of Bob’s family as they grieve his passing. He was a wonderful man.
Bob was my Dads best friend. He was always a frequent guest at our house when we had sunday dinners in Schenectady.Afterwards, Bob would give us rides in his car or wed walk with him.
Bob and Dad always took a walk together at lunchtime during the years at Mohasco. Him and Dad continued to write one another after Mohawk shut down ioperations in Amsterdam n 1982. Bob always sent Dad updates on news in Amsterdam too.And My Dad would phone him from time to time.
All us kids loved Bob. He was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor and I continued to write him after Dad died in 2007. He will be missed greatly.
I echo what my brother Jimmy said about Bob , and I couldn’t say it better. Bob was a gentleman and a loyal friend. It was heartwarming for me to see the great friendship our Dad had with Bob, including a visit my Dad and I had at Bob’s house shortly before Dad died. Bob touched our family in so many positive ways. He was loved by us all.
