Eugene E. Robetor, 80

E ugene E. Robetor, 80, of Whitehall passed away on Friday, September 26, at his home due to heart failure.

He was born on December 5, 1927 in Whitehall, NY to Robert and Mary (Rodd)Robetor. He was preceded in death by five siblings; Dorothy(Fields), Louise (Epifanio), Arthur, Leonard and Robert.

He married Marguerite E. Rutherford on August 4, 1946 in Nashville, TN and shared 62 wonderful years with “the love of his life.” Eugene has seven children; Marie(Henderson) Mechanicville, Teresa (Shaw,Deceased), Joseph, St. Paul,MN, Clifford, Glens Falls, Steven,Whitehall, Tina(Howe), Lennox,SD, and Dennis, ID.

Eugene is also survived by 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and was blessed to meet his first great-great-grandchild recently before his death.

He served as a clerk in the Army Air Corps from 1945-1947 and returned to Whitehall where he worked for the Delaware & Hudson Railroad until his retirement in 1983. He was a member of the American Legion.

Anyone lucky enough to know Eugene will surely remember fondness for telling a good story, his quick wit and ability to make you feel at ease. Eugene was an outdoorsman who found extreme pleasure in hunting, fishing, gardening and nature. He enjoyed reading anything about history and took great pleasure in recounting the facts.

Eugene will be remembered by his family and friends for his affectionate hugs, deep devotion to them, his sense of humor and love of nature. Eugene will be missed by many people.

There will be no viewing because Eugene was an anatomical donor to Albany Med. The family asks that instead of flowers, that you please make a donation to The American Heart Association, The Diabetes Association, The National Kidney Foundation or Susan G. Komen Foundation. The family also requests that in memory of Eugene, please tell someone how beautiful they are today.
