Mr. Robert H. Morey, 89, of Gloversville, passed away Tuesday at Albany Medical Center Hospital. He was born February 14, 1923, in Gloversville, son of the late Harold and Mary Pitchanau Morey. Mr. Morey was educated in Gloversville schools and served in the Navy during World War II. Employed by the former FJ&G Railroad in Gloversville, Robert proudly served as a train engineer for 31 years, retiring in 1982.
A loving family man, Robert enjoyed many family gatherings and family events. An avid sports fan, he especially enjoyed the New York Giants and New York Yankees. Throughout his career and sports interests, Robert became a devoted hat collector. He worked very hard in life, but upon retiring, he enjoyed and lived a full life with his family. He will be loved and remembered for his kindness and generosity. We are blessed to have had him in our lives. A No. 1 dad, now it's time to drive the train in the sky.
Robert is survived by his loving children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and longtime friend, Betty Brockhum. As Bob requested, funeral services were private and at the convenience of his family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Walrath & Stewart Funeral Home, 51 Fremont St., Gloversville. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Office of the Aging Meals on Wheels as Robert requested.
