Obituary Condolences

De Luca, Robert

Robert De Luca, humanist, performer, beloved family member, and Commissioner of Mental Health for Tompkins County, passed on Sunday, October 16, in the Hospicare Residence in Ithaca, NY at the age of 58. He leaves behind his father, Thomas De Luca; brother, Thomas De Luca, Jr.; wife, Karen Koyanagi-De Luca; daughters, Giovanna De Luca, Amelia Burns; and a legion of friends. Bob lived a joyous life, one that he described as blessed perfection, because of the love he felt for and from his friends and family, because of the good he contributed to the community through his life work, and the cheer and beauty he gave to others as a dancer, actor, musician and, of course, Morris Fool. He will be greatly missed by many people, in many places, across many borders. Spread the cheer, and dance on under the moonlight, sweet Bob. Friends are invited to call from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, and from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Perkins Funeral Home, 55 West Main Street, Dryden, NY. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 402 North Aurora Street, Ithaca, NY. www.perkinsfuneralhome.com
