On the afternoon of April 12, 2012 with his family by his side, Robert Galassi took his last ride before "cruzin" into a better place. Robert was known by his family and friends as "Bobby." Bobby will be remembered as an avid car and Harley enthusiast and owner of Ossining Music Center.
Bobby is survived by his adoring wife and best friend, Mara Levy Galassi. He is also survived by his loving mother, Marie Dietz Galassi. Bobby also leaves behind his beloved son and daughter-in-law, David and Desiree' Galassi of Newtown, Connecticut and daughter, Susan Galassi Pokorne and her companion John DePhillips of Yorktown Heights; his adoring grandchildren, Benjamin, Maxwell and Isabella Galassi and Alexander and Emma Pokorne. Also, his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Steve and Amy Zahner. Bobby was a cherished Uncle to Lauren Zahner and Beth and Rob Sherwood, John and Tracy Sutherland McBride and son, Christopher, Richard and Sharon Sutherland Krause and daughter, Victoria and Robert Sutherland and his companion Arnold Yokomizo. He was the son of the late Salvatore Galassi and brother of the late Ellen Galassi Sutherland.
Never did a man with a more gentle and sincere temperament touch the lives of so many people. Bobby will be remembered for his strength of character, sense of humor, generosity and love of his family and friends. Bobby was loved and admired by all who had the pleasure and honor of knowing him. He will be missed enormously. We will carry his bright and shining spirit with us always.
In lieu of flowers please send donations in his memory to: Hospice Care, 540 White Plains Road, Ste.300, Tarrytown, NY 10591-5132.
