Faurote, Robert E.
Robert E. Faurote, Jr., 58, of Brookfield, husband of Carolyn (Accardi) Faurote died peacefully at home on Thursday, November 15, 2012 surrounded by his family. He was a great man, a brave man and he met his end with a dignity and grace that one only reads about.
Mr. Faurote was born in Kingston, NY, January 26, 1954, a son of Robert E. Faurote, Sr. of Walden, NY and Barbara (Stagg) Faurote of Wallkill, NY.
He attended Wallkill schools, Wallkill Senior High School and graduated from SUNY-Binghamton with a B.S. in Mathematics.
A database analyst, Mr. Faurote was employed by Bottom Line Technologies of Wilton, CT and spent his professional career doing IT work for numerous companies. He was well known and revered in his line of work. He frequently stated that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life and that he was lucky to have found a career that he enjoyed and excelled at.
An area resident for the past seventeen years coming from Westchester County, NY, he and his family resided in Newtown prior to moving to Brookfield seven years ago. He was an avid runner, enjoyed hiking up mountains and preferred to spend his time outdoors enjoying God's creation.
Bob attended the First Assembly of God Church, Brookfield and Walnut Hill Community Church, Bethel after coming to the Christian faith 16 years ago. He has spent those years dedicated to his Lord and Saviour.
Bob was an exceptional father and husband. His priority was always the well-being and happiness of his family. He was deeply loved by his children and wife. His sense of humor, intelligence and eccentricity will be remembered and treasured for generations. Even in his final months, Bob made those around him laugh and see the world in new and different ways. His outlook on life and the world was unique to him and the loss of his voice and perspective will be to the detriment of all who knew him.
In addition to his wife of twenty-three years and parents, Bob is survived by two daughters, Kelly Hosonitz and her husband, Jason of Wake Forest, NC and Erin Faurote of Brookfield, CT; two sons, Robert K. Faurote of New York, NY and Zachary Faurote of Brookfield, CT; two sisters, Brenda Reynolds and her husband, Eugene of Clintondale, NY and Debra Flannery of Wallkill, NY; a granddaughter, Julianne and several nieces and nephews.
