Obituary for Robert E. Kafarski

Robert E. Kafarski (Bob) age 72 passed away on March 30, 2020 after a valiant battle with cancer. Bob is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Kathy, his two beautiful daughters Julia and Heather, son-in-law Joseph Long, and his two adoring grandsons Avery and Riley.
Bob grew up in Hawthorne, NY, the son of Mary and Edward Kafarski. He graduated Westlake High School in 1965 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy in November of 1966, where he served as a communication technician. He moved to Pleasantville after the marriage to Kathy in May of 1973. He continued his communication career as a technician for Verizon for some 33 years until retirement.

Bob's happiest times were spent with his family, catching the elusive large mouth bass fishing on the reservoir, and enjoying beach days at Bonnet Shores in Narragansett, RI.

He was a big man with an ever bigger heart, gave the best bear hugs and smiles, and always put his family first.

Soar with the angels, dear Bob, you will be missed.
