Malinowski, Robert John Sr. CICERO, N.Y. Robert John Malinowski Sr. passed away on Monday, July 9, 2018, at The Cottages Rehabilitation Center in Cicero. Bob was born on June 10, 1944, in Albany, the son of the late John Chester Malinowski Sr. and Veronica (Delehanty) Malinowski. After graduating Cardinal McCloskey High School, Bob began his initial career at Albany Felt Co. He served in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany, followed by a 24-year career at NYNEX retiring as a lead information systems specialist in 1994. Bob enjoyed camping, hiking and especially fishing.
