Robert “Bob” F. Staufenberg Sr., of Middletown, passed away on Friday, October 13. Bob was born on February 16, 1936 in Brooklyn, New York. He graduated from Erasmus High School and later attended both Pace University and M.I.T. He retired as vice president of data processing at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Bob was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather “Poppy” and uncle. He was devoted to his family. Bob avidly followed the stock market and liked to trade. After retirement, he enjoyed traveling the world with his wife and family.
Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Dolores; his daughters, Beth ”Messy,” Donna “Babydoll,” and Lynn; his sons-in-law, Jim Albers “Jimbo,” Donald Cassidy and Steven Malick; his grandchildren; and his brother, Arthur; as well as many other extended family members. Bob had a long and full life, but his greatest joy was his grandchildren, his princes and princesses, Kenneth, Matthew, Ryan, Bobby, Alyssa, Kyle, Stephanie, Casey and Jake.
Bob was predeceased by his parents, Louis and Mary; his brother, John; his sisters, Kay, Joan and Noreen; and his son, Robert Jr., whom he affectionately called “Harry.” It was Bob’s time and he knew it. As he always said, “You don’t have to go, but you can’t stay here.” He is now at peace with his son.
