Madelmayer, Robert “Bob”
It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Madelmayer announces his passing on
Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at the age of 83. Bob, son of George and Pauline Madelmayer,
will be lovingly remembered by his sister, Irene Winckel, and his two sons, James (Jean) and
Glenn (Loretta). He will be fondly remembered by his seven grandchildren: Robert (Colleen),
Sean, Caitlin (William), Jennifer, Lauren, Thomas, and Stacy. He will also be fondly
remembered by his niece Cathy and nephew Scott, daughter and son of Irene and Art Winckel.
Bob graduated Hempstead High School with academic honors and then went to serve his country
in the United States Army. While stationed in a small town in Germany in 1955, he met the love
of his life, Mathilde. They married in 1957 and returned to the states where they raised their
family. They enjoyed their life together for 61 years before her passing in October of 2018. Bob
was a faithful son, loving brother, and devoted husband and father. A hardworking, honest man
with strong family values, Bob always focused on providing a better life for his loved ones.
Bob was great with his hands - there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix - and he loved to use his talents
to help a friend or neighbor in times of need. A selfless humanitarian, Bob took an active interest
in helping those with special needs, providing opportunities through employment to help develop
their skills and further enrich their lives.
Bob lived a life full of many passions. Whether he was working on cars, enjoying nature and
wildlife, tinkering with and flying radio-controlled airplanes, or spending time with friends at the
pistol club, Bob spread joy everywhere he went.
In his later years, Bob lived for his grandchildren, who will always remember him for his smiles,
whistling, and singing around the house. They will especially remember their childhood tractor
and motorcycle rides around the peach orchards in Connecticut, playing Bocce in the yard, and
his love for birds.
