Robert Arthur Boyack, 80, passed away on Thursday, April 23, 2020 in Lady Lake, Florida, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Bob was born on April 8, 1940 in Albany, New York to Walter and Anna Marie Boyack. He was a graduate of Albany High School and received a degree in electrical engineering from Hudson Valley Technical Institute. Bob had a 30-year career with Honeywell Computer Systems in both technical and management positions. On May 12, 1962, he married Carol Ann Griffin in Colonie, New York and they had two children, Michael and Sharon. Bob and Carol enjoyed retirement in Boynton Beach, Florida; New Bern, North Carolina; and Lady Lake, Florida.

Bob had many interests and was capable of building or fixing just about anything. He loved flying and was an FAA-licensed Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor. He was a life-long amateur radio operator, having received his license as a teenager and ultimately attaining an Extra Class license. Bob was an avid boater and belonged to many boating organizations including the US Power Squadron, where he served in several leadership roles including Commander of the Harris Chain squadron. He was also a self-taught organist who designed and built a theatre organ in his home.

Bob is survived by his loving wife, Carol; his children Michael (Melissa) Boyack of Rochester, New York and Sharon (Craig) Myers of Olean, New York; two grandchildren: Patrick and Casey Boyack, and many friends who will miss his intellect, wisdom, and many talents.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Contributions in his memory can be made to the American Cancer Society. Online condolences to the Boyack family can be made online at:www.baldwincremation.com

    Carol and family, So sorry to hear of Bob's passing, my condolences. I knew Bob from High School and with our group we had some good times together. He will be missed but I'm sure he will always be walking beside you.

    Carol, I was so sorry to read about Robert. I am a volunteer at FCS and remember having many lovely conversations with Robert. He was always a very happy person every time I saw him and a joy to talk to. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Rita

    Dad, I'm so glad we got to speak with you a little bit last Sunday, but I wish we had had more time to say goodbye. Thank you for all of the kindness you showed me, and, most of all, thank you for making my family possible. Without you, my family would not exist at all, and I would not be who I am. I am grateful for the happy memories I have of times we spent with you at Great Sacandaga Lake, and at the home you shared with mom in Greece years ago, and at the house in Boyton Beach. And I will always fondly remember that raised-eyebrow grin you'd make and the twinkle you'd have in your eye when you were extra contented and happy. While I am relieved that you will not have to suffer anymore, we will miss you dearly.

    Love, Melissa
