Obituary of Robert G. Goyer, Sr.
Robert G. Goyer, Sr., 86, of Cropseyville, beloved husband of the late Hilda Gundrum Goyer, peacefully entered into eternal life on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at The Eddy Heritage House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Troy.
Born in Troy, NY, he was the son of the late Alfred and Nettie Mason Stowell and was educated in the Berlin Central Schools. Mr. Goyer served active duty as a Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1952 to 1954 and later received his Honorable Discharge as a Sergeant in 1960 for his service in the Reserve of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Bob retired from the Bendix Corporation in Green Island where he had been a Millwright and had also previously been employed at Norton Co. and Behr-Manning. He was also self-employed in the construction industry with his dad and brother Carl, in their operation of ABC Sand & Gravel in Grafton.
Bob was a true jack-of-all-trades and Mr. Fix-It. He had been an avid outdoorsman enjoying years of hunting and fishing. He was also known to be a collector of anything and everything and could always find a use for whatever it may be that he had at some point. He will be missed for his knowledge, wit and love.
