Robert (“Bob”) Paul Matuszewski Sr. of Goshen, N.Y., entered into rest on Sunday, May 19, 2019, with his family by his side at the Valley View after an 11-year battle with the Alzheimer’s Disease. He was 80 years old.

Son of the late Edward and Antoinette Sanok Matuszewski, he was born on June 2, 1938, in Warwick, N.Y.

He was a retired Shortline Bus driver and after retirement was asked to drive for the Goshen school bus system because of his impeccable driving record while working for Shortline. He also worked at the family business Quaker Creek Store.

He was a U.S. Army veteran. He was a member of St. Joseph’s Holy Name Society, Goshen Knights of Columbus, PLAV Post 16 Pine Island, TWU of America Local 225 Board of Directors, and Excelsior Sportsman’s Club.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Barbara Sobkowiak Matuszewski; his sons, Robert Matuszewski Jr. (Diane) and their children, Jessica Verblaauw (Craig) and their son, Mason, Robert Matuszewski III (Paige), Matthew Matuszewski (Emma), and John Matuszewski (Candy) and their children, Amber Matuszewski (Dylan), Kristen Matuszewski and Jaycee Matuszewski; daughters, Jacqueline Matuszewski (John Smith) and Vivian Matuszewski (Ed); sisters, Dorothy Myers (Frank) and Adele Hicks (Bob); brother, Fred Matuszewski (Linda); and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased his son Stanley Edward Matuszewski.

The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at Valley View, especially the Angels on Grand Avenue, who took care of Bob for five years, John Sanok and lucky lottery winner Ed Noger Jr.

Visitation was held May 21, with Legion services held May 21 and 22 at T.S. Purta Funeral Home, Florida, N.Y.

A funeral mass was held May 22 at St. Joseph’s Church 22 Glenmere Ave. Florida.

Burial was held in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Joseph’s Church or St. Stanislaus Church 14 Glenmere Avenue, Florida, NY 10921; or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 501 St. Jude Place Memphis, TN 38105-1905.
