Robert Byrnes, Jr. Obituary

Our beautiful Bob Byrnes was born on April 24, 1956 and departed on January 23, 2023. 

We share Bob’s own words with you, as this is how Bob lived his life. 

“We will keep each other warm at night. You can't be warm alone. We'll put an arm around each other in hard times if that's all we can do.  We'll cry together. We'll make each other laugh. We'll make our human mistakes. We'll give love and have love. We'll have that when other things go bad.”

This is the essence of Robert Byrnes and how he lived his life. With care, consideration, and kindness to all.

He was a dedicated and valued employee of Guyson Corp of USA in Saratoga Springs, NY.  Bob was an extremely hard-working, and dependable employee. His resume included a highly valued skill set in all phases of building equipment, construction, resource management, and quality control in electrical, plumbing and carpentry, blueprint reading, interpretation, welding (MIG/TIG/ARC), metal fabrication, and assembly of magnets in MRI equipment. He was an IT expert troubleshooter and provider of solutions for technical and production problems.

He worked as a Team Leader and provided training for members of his team. Not always so serious… as Bob could lighten up the problems with a good joke when needed!  Bob was extremely industrious at both work and in his own time. 

Bob’s celebration of life is open to all, and will be starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 15th at the parking lot of the Cock ’n Bull Restaurant, 5342 Parkis Mills Rd, Galway, NY 12074. With a side trip to Bob's property.

Please RSVP to by July 7th so the right accommodation can be made.  Come casual as that is what Bob would have liked.

We will celebrate,  "The Man From"  B.Y.R.N.E.S

Who enjoyed exploring the world around him and had a lot of empathy and respect for all. Bob's early big influences came from his fun-loving uncle George Legorius, and his uncle Leonard Tenace who was a fine craftsman and builder himself. And good friend Kevin Adriance, “They loved, and laughed, and left.”
