Robert C. McEnery, 82, of Sloatsburg NY, passed away peacefully on March 26, 2021. It was just as he wished. He was home and fine up until the last minute of his life.

Bob was born in Brooklyn NY on June 5, 1938. He attended Alexander-Hamilton Vocational High School and graduated in June of 1956.

Bob got a job at New York Telephone aka Ma Bell right out of high school. He worked on the elevators in most of the buildings in Manhattan. They called him the boy with the “Golden Screwdriver” because he could fix anything.

Bob and Joan met when they were 15, through her twin brother John who he was friendly with. They married 6 years later.

Bob learned to fly small airplanes but only had a license to fly alone. He was forced to stop because he now had children, and Joan was afraid he would die.

Bob became the Manager of the Elevator repairmen and continued to work for New York Telephone/Verizon until he retired some 35 years later.

He enjoyed old movies and TV shows and could tell you every actor or actress on the screen. He enjoyed airplanes throughout his life and used to take the older grandkids to the local airports when they were kids. They loved watching the airplanes take off. He enjoyed all the friends we brought to the house. Their home was known as the compound and will be missed by so many.

He was a natural born mechanic and knew how to fix almost everything. He made it very difficult to get any work done on the house because few met his standards.

Predeceased by his wife Joan, his brother Paul McEnery, and his parents, Bob leaves to cherish his memory: daughter, Susan (Kenny) McEnery McDonagh; son, Robert (Karin) McEnery; son David (Michaelinda) James McEnery; daughter, Carolyn (Keith) Joan McEnery; grandchildren: Alyssa (Brad) Diaz, Dominick McEnery, Karissa (James) O’Neill, Robert (Ali) McEneryi, Amy Jennings, Reanna McDonagh, and Derek Jennings and great grandchildren: Bristol and Jaxson Diaz and Paige and Ryder O’Neill.
