Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

Robert C. Gil­more, 90, of Teet­sel Street, for­merly of East Branch, died Thurs­day, Sept. 29, 2016, at Ten Broeck Commons Nurs­ing Home.

Born Aug. 14, 1926, in Colch­ester, he was the son of the late Joseph and Mar­garet (Wil­cox) Gil­more. A vet­eran of World War II, he served in the U.S. Army. He was em­ployed for many years as a blue­stone ma­son and fore­man at John­son and Rhodes Blue Stone in East Branch. Bob was a reg­u­lar at­ten­dant at the East Branch Com­mu­nity Church for many years. He was past pres­i­dent and com­mis­sioner of the East Branch Fire De­part­ment. Af­ter re­lo­cat­ing to Saugerties in 1986, Bob worked as a stone cut­ter at Bruce Wat­son Blue­stone and Me­mo­ri­als and as a la­borer with NYS at Ken­neth Wil­son State Park, both in Wood­stock. He was not happy if he was not work­ing. Bob was last em­ployed by the Town of Saugerties Po­lice De­part­ment and is re­mem­bered by many as the cross­ing guard at Mount Mar­ion School. For the past few years, Bob will be re­mem­bered with his four wheeler (walker) head­ing to and from Price Chop­per! Bob was an avid deer hunter, life­time mem­ber of the Mor­ton Hill Hunt­ing Club, and a diehard fan of the New York Yan­kees. He was pre­de­ceased by his wife, Bar­bara. Sur­vivors in­clude two daugh­ters: Linda and her hus­band Mark Imhoff and Lois and her hus­band Lenny Bouren, both of Saugerties; one sis­ter, Madolin Michaletz; daugh­ter-in-Law, Karen Gil­more; six grand­chil­dren, Bill Gil­more Jr., Aaron Gil­more, Carole Ann McGlone, Meghan Bouren, Re­becca Al­hanna, and Cather­ine Imhoff. Twenty great­grand­chil­dren and sev­eral nieces and neph­ews also sur­vive. He was pre­de­ceased by a son, Wil­liam Gil­more, daugh­ter-in-law, Gail Gil­more; and three broth­ers: Arthur, Leo and John Gil­more.
