Obituary of Robert Fioretti
Robert Fioretti died on March 9, 2019 in Glens Falls, NY.
Bob was the devoted husband of the late Jeanne, and father of Theresa, Chipper, Jeanmarie and Joseph, son of Edward and Fanny, grandfather of nine and great-grandfather of four. Bob not only dedicated his life to his family, he was larger than life in so many ways. No matter what the occasion, Bob had a smile on his face and joy in his heart. He graced us with the happiest experiences and the most precious memories. We enjoyed summer vacations at Montauk, travels to Italy, ski vacations in Vermont, and holiday memories that our family will treasure always. He set up the trains around the Christmas tree, organized Easter egg hunts and set off great firecrackers for 4th of July!
Bob always had engaging hobbies – he was an accomplished watercolor artist, he loved photography, and the list goes on…. As he built his business and so many buildings, Bob built our family foundation – he taught us integrity, faith and discipline. Bob put his family first, always, and our education was paramount. As if all he did for his family wasn’t enough, Bob always volunteered his time and energy – for the Pound Ridge Lions Club, the Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the Boy Scouts. Few can match the energy he put into his passions. He exuded love and caring in everything he did and he left a legacy of a beautiful, loving family.
Bob’s family will receive friends on Monday, March 18, 2019 from 4-7 pm at Clark Associates Funeral Home, 4 Woods Bridge Road, Katonah, NY.
The Mass of Christian Burial will be on Tuesday, March 19 at 10:15am at St Mary’s Church, 55 Catoonah Street, Ridgefield, CT.
