DISKIN, Robert "Bobby"

Passed away on October 21, 2021. Bobby was born on December 5, 1930 to Jacob and Rebecca Diskin. He grew up in Glens Falls, NY with his three brothers, Edward, Samuel, and Bernard; his parents and brothers predeceased him. In the early 1950s Bobby served in the US Navy and worked at the Pentagon. He also spent time on the USS Samuel B Roberts. In 1995, Bobby and Alice Rich married and shared travels and adventures to places in various parts of the world. His wonderful wife, Alice, passed away in 2006. Bobby was the first of his family to graduate from college. He earned a BBA from Georgia State University. He went on to become a real estate analyst for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He retired in 1985. Alice and Bobby were respected members of Shearith Israel Synagogue. They were fixtures there and made the Shearith Israel community part of their family. Bobby is survived by Alice's three children including Marilyn (Yale) Shure, Elliott (Charlotte) Rich, and Steve (Anita) Rich as well as a wonderful crowd of grandchildren and cousins. He is also survived by his niece, Marcia (Gregory) Ringo, nephews, Barry Diskin (Nancy), Alan Diskin (Linda), great-nephews Brian Ringo (JC), Jonathan Ringo, Cameron Diskin (Amy), and his great-niece, Tybee Diskin. His nephew, Mark Diskin, predeceased Bobby in November 2000. Bobby was genuinely committed to improving the lives of his family and friends. His kindness was among his most identifiable attributes. This was demonstrated by his consistent efforts to help anyone in need along with his devotion to caring for members of his family during the final chapters of their lives.
