SAYBROOK - Robert (Bob) A. Erwin, 60, passed away at his home unexpectedly on August 10, 2020. He lived most of his life in the Geneva area, graduating from Geneva High School in 1978. He received his LPN license from Knoedler School of Practical Nursing, and later earned his RN license from University of the State of New York.

He was married to Brenda McCracken and they had three beautiful children together. Being a father and grandparent brought him a lot of joy. He was immensely proud of his children and their accomplishments.
Bob enjoyed watching sports and never missed a Cleveland Indians game. He enjoyed working on cars and reminiscing by campfires with his good friend, Dale Loveland. When illness limited his activities, he enjoyed relaxing at his lakeview home with his beloved cat, Patches.
