Robert grew up in Watervliet and later graduated from Colonie High School once he and his family moved up the hill. He dedicated many years of his life to working on the railroad as a Track Supervisor for Gilford Transportation. He commuted to Massachusetts daily and always worked very hard to be sure he could provide for his family. In his free time Robert loved coaching his son’s baseball teams and going to his games, bowling in his many leagues, watching NASCAR races, cheering on his favorite teams; the Detroit Lions, New York Yankees, and Pittsburgh Pirates, collecting baseball cards and movies, putting together model trains and tanks, and all things lighthouses. Robert was a true family man through and through. He was a great father and grandfather and the lessons he passed on will forever be remembered. He was always there for those he cared about with an extended arm and a helping hand and always gave the right advice. He also had a sense of humor that could lift the spirits of any room. He will certainly be missed by all whose lives he has touched.
Robert is survived by his two children, Michele (Jose) Contreras of Northglenn, CO and Matthew Moseley of Clifton Park, his grandchildren, Brian and Brendan Contreras, his sisters, Mary Krage of Eagle Mills and Louise Bradley of Daytona Beach, his best friend Paul Miller, his former wife and lifelong friend Jeanne Moseley, and by several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by 3 grandchildren; Ashley, Jacob, and Derek.
