Stephentown, NY- It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our step-father, Robert Saltz. Bob passed away on May 19th after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife, Lee. He was the proud father of two stepsons, Andy and Ian, and two daughters-in-law, Dawn and Vickie. Bob’s pride and joy were his 5 grandchildren, Zachary, Evan, Nicholas, Cydney and Jordyn.
Throughout his 36-year career as a teacher and coach, Bob had a lasting impact on many of his students and swimmers who still remain an integral part of his life. He had a deep passion for working with photos and enjoyed asking random trivia questions while cheering on the Yankees and Giants. What made him happiest was spending quality time with Lee and their beloved animals at the home they constructed in Upstate, NY. His absence will be felt by a vast array of cherished friends and neighbors who had become like family to him.
Bob will be remembered for his kind heart and generous spirit. He touched the lives of so many people and will be deeply missed by all who knew hihim.
A graveside service will be held at New Montifiore Cemetary, 1180 Wellwood Avenue, West Babylon, NY with Shiva to follow at 2405 Aberdeen Street, East Meadow, NY.
Additionally, we will be sitting on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 9:00 pmpm.
