CLIFTON PARK Robert Leo Kennedy passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. A beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, he is reunited with the love of his life, Barbara, who passed away in 1988 from CADASIL.

Born March 14, 1941, in Troy, New York, Bob resided in Clifton Park, New York. He graduated from LaSalle High School and Manhattan College. Bob retired from the NYS Division for Youth in 1996.

Bob loved cars, camping, dancing, music and, most of all, his family. Known to many as Mr. Bob, he was “Pops” to his eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. He loved nothing more than to socialize, and could be found attending the many school plays, sporting events and concerts his grandchildren were involved as well as a frequent diner at Red Robin where the staff knew him and his order by name!

Bob is survived by his three sons, Brian (Renee), Michael (Michelle) and Todd (Venice) as well as his first cousins Kathleen Kennedy and Eileen (Ed) Cupolo to whom he was like a brother.

Funeral services will be Saturday at 9 am at St. Edward’s Church, 569 Clifton Park Center Rd., Clifton Park. Interment will follow in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Troy.

Relatives and friends may visit with his family at the Philip J. Brendese Funeral Home, 133 Broad St. (Rte.32), Waterford, Friday from 4-7 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for donations to the Million Dollar Bike Ride to support CADASIL Research (online) at: or via check made payable to: Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania Penn Medicine Development and Alumni Relations, c/o Michael Kennedy, 37 Longview Dr., Clifton Park, NY 12065

Brian, Michal, Todd and families,
I hope you realize how much your Alpine family will miss the memories of Mr. Bob. There wasn’t anyone who knew him who didn’t like him. He was the glue that kept your family together. Stay together in his memory. He’s with your Mom now in healthy bodies. Dancing and having their happy hour. Our sympathy and prayers for peace to you all.
Gary and Rosemary

Thank you for the kind words. You are correct that he was the glue, and we all have wonderful Alpine Memories. It was a great place to grow up.
