Robert H. Lennox, 63

R obert H. Lennox, age 63, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, at Rutland (Vt.) Regional Medical Center.
Bob was born on Oct. 16, 1946, in Glens Falls, the son of Byron (Barney) Lennox Sr. and Leona Greenway Lennox.
Bob was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and served during the Vietnam War. He was retired from the Navy Reserves. Bob was a member of the American Legion and a past commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Bob was retired from the New York State Corrections Department where he was most recently a sergeant at the Mt. McGregor Facility in Wilton.
Through the years Bob had obtained three associate’s degrees in various business principles. He had never decided which he wanted to pursue.
Bob was currently serving as the grand knight of the Knights of Columbus in Granville. He was a past president of the Granville Lions Club and also served as zone chairman.
Bob was an avid golfer. He also fancied himself a hunter, thoroughly enjoying the woods and nature. However, his family hesitated to call him an avid hunter because even though he loved the concept he was not particularly successful in his endeavors.

Bob is also survived by two sons, Robert Lennox and his wife, Lori, of Granville and Christopher Lennox and his wife, Sarah, of Troy; and one daughter, Mary Lennox of Granville.
