1941 - 2021
Robert Cukro was finally reunited with the love of his life on October 22, 2021 and is now in eternal rest with his wife Joanne, family and friends. He is survived by three children, Mark and Mike (twins), and John, 2 daughter in laws, Ebru (Mike) and Suzanne. (Mark). An adored Grandfather of 7, to Justin, Alina and Evan (twins), Ian, Juliet and Marissa (twins) and Katarina.
Bob was raised in New York with 3 brothers, served in the Army and worked in the aerospace industry. He then both met and married his wife Joanne in 1968, together they raised a family in Elmont, NY. He worked hard all his life and enjoyed his remaining years in the warmth and sunny weather of Florida. He was truly, an exceptionally loyal man, a dedicated husband and father along with being one of the most perseverant people one could ever know.
He was known for his oversized cooking recipes (Army style), his crazy but fun sense of humor, his love of the Giants, Yankees and Rye bread, always speaking his mind, and telling it exactly like he saw it. As many can attribute, his home always had an open door and a warm bed, he would do anything for those he knew and cared for. He would give anyone the shirt off his back, the last dollar in his wallet, and certainly a hearty, home cooked meal if you would sit at his table. Even in his final days, he was still cracking jokes, laughing and having fun as best as he could.
Rest in Peace Bob, you will be missed.
