Looney, Robert L.

Victor, NY

Robert L. Looney, a.k.a. Skier Bob, loved to joke. He quipped, “We lived in the ‘high peaks’ of Jay, NY, in the ‘low land’ of Victor, NY, and now I’ll try ‘under the ground.’” Born in Medford, MA on January 13, 1931, Bob lived almost 90 years, passing away December 8, 2020.

Bob leaves his loving and devoted wife, Alice Looney. He was the father of six children—Patrick, Sheila (Tim), Daniel, Michael (Elizabeth), Seana (Russel), and Sharon (Ben)—and grandfather of ten —Joshua, Ashley, Luke, Paige Pauline, Alexandra, Brynn (Nick), Sarah, Dylan, Felicia, and Jacob. He is also survived by his twin brother, William, and younger brother, Lawrence. He was predeceased by his brother, Peter, and his sister, Patricia.

Bob was a Navy veteran (1951-1954), a travelling salesman, and a corporate vice president. Later he established Maximum Space Systems in Western New York. Upon retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his wife, Alice, his grandchildren and nieces and nephews. He was an avid alpine skier.
