Robert “Bobby” Troccoli of Buchanan, NY passed away on April 19, 2019 after a short, valiant battle with cancer. Bobby was born on October 19, 1959 to Donald and Faith Troccoli. Bobby spent his entire life in the Montrose/Buchanan area attending the Hen Hud Schools. He was a gifted athlete in many sports and was All Section for Wrestling. Bobby graduated from Manhattan College Certified in Nuclear Power Plant Operations and Health Physics. He was also a Nationally Registered Radiation Protection Technologist (NRRPT). After graduation he went on to work for the NY Power Authority and Entergy for 18 years, then traveled the country working in the Nuclear field to provide for his family before settling in at BHI Energy Power Services until his passing. Bobby was the proud father of Matthew and Cody Troccoli and took much pride in watching them excel at all their sports while growing up. On October 23, 2005 Bobby married his beloved wife Amy Prahlow. In 2016 they would become the proud grandparents (along with Kelli Troccoli) of Kye Kayo-Troccoli and Giovanna Grace Troccoli. There was no title Bobby loved more than “Papa Bobby”! Bobby was an avid golfer whose favorite pastime was hitting the links with his loyal friends followed by a good card game as well as watching his favorite teams the NY Mets and NY Rangers. Bobby is survived by his loving wife Amy Troccoli, his son Matthew Troccoli, Grandchildren Kye and Giovanna Troccoli, his sister Donna and good friend and brother in law Mark Smith, Nephew Ryan Smith and Niece Nicole Smith.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any manʼs death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
