Passed away peacefully on January 21, 2012 at the age of 90 in Buffalo, NY. Bob and his wife, Lynn, raised their family in Blooming Grove, NY. He served in Europe with the US Army during World War II and after completing college at SUNY Brockport, he began his career as teacher, coach, and eventually athletic director at Washingtonville High School. He was affectionately known as "Chief" by his students and athletes. He also served as Town Justice for several years and was a County Legislator. Bob had many talents but his most cherished legacy to his children stems from the example set by his loving marriage and his constancy as a calm, supportive father.

Bob was born to Swedish immigrants, Carin and Eric Samuelson, in Brooklyn , NY, on December 3, 1922. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 63 years, Lynn, who died in 2010, and is survived by son Robert and wife Sue Ellen, of Campbell Hall; daughter Susan and husband Mark Miller, of Seattle, WA; daughter Margaret Candino and husband Paul, of East Amherst, NY. Lynn and Bob's son, Eric Jay, died in 1971. Bob is also survived by his grandchildren, Jay Samuelson and wife Jane of Montgomery; Dana Brookshire and husband Jeff, of Winston-Salem, NC; Eric Candino of Syracuse and Christine Candino of Buffalo; and by his great-grandchildren Sarah Samuelson and Addison and Ryan Brookshire.

A memorial service in Washingtonville is being planned. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to The Hospice Foundation of WNY, 225 Como Park Boulevard, P.O. Box 590, Buffalo, NY 14240-0590 or the Blooming Grove United Church of Christ (specifically in the memo Veterans Stained Glass Window Campaign Fund) Box 101, Blooming Grove, NY 10914.
