Obituary Condolences

NORTH PETERSBURGH, N.Y. -- Robert White Bovie, 80, of Route 22, died on Tuesday, July 11, at the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington, Vt., surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Albany on Nov. 5, 1925, he was the son of the late George W. and Charlotte B. “Lottie” Cook Bovie. He was the loving husband of the former Linda M. Basham. Bob was a member of the All Saints Episcopal Church in Hoosick and also served in the church’s vestry.

A lifelong resident of the Hoosick area, Bob graduated from the Walter A. Wood High School in Hoosick Falls. Bob worked on the family farm, Riverside Farm in the town of Hoosick, alongside his father. He ran the farm until the mid 1970s, before working in construction for a few years. Bob was employed in the maintenance department of the Hoosick Falls School District from 1979 until his retirement in 1992.

Mr. Bovie was a 65-year member of the Hoosick Grange and a member of the Farm Bureau. He loved square dancing, gardening, animals and was an avid reader. He was an amateur archaeologist and astronomer who enjoyed bird watching and coon hunting in his younger years. His true love was his family and his granddaughter, Makayla.

Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Linda M. Bovie, and his children, Ronald W. (William Hamlin) of Hoosick and Heidi M. Dickson of North Petersburgh. He was the proud grandfather of Makayla M. Dickson, his pride and joy. He was survived also by his in-laws, Virginia and Robert Lupoletti of Enfield, Conn.; a cousin, Dr. Warren (Karen) Bovie of Boston; along with special friends Bernice Jones (who was like Bob’s mother), Mary and Bob Smith, and Victoria and Lee Chapman. He was predeceased by an infant brother, Richard. Bob will be most remembered for his kind, unselfish giving spirit and generosity, along with his love and respect for everyone!

On Saturday, July 15, at 9:30 a.m., the Rev. Gary Strubel, vicar, will read the burial office with Holy Eucharist at All Saints Episcopal Church on Route 7 in Hoosick. Interment in Hoosick Rural Cemetery will follow the funeral.

Relatives and friends are invited to the Robson-Reinfurt Funeral Home, 72 Main St. in Hoosick Falls on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. for visitation. Father Strubel will lead a “Prayer for Vigil” in the funeral home at 6:45 p.m.

Memorial contributions in his memory may be made to the education fund of Bob’s granddaughter, Makayla M. Dickson.
