Obituary

Robert E. Westfall, age 74, of The Villages, FL and formerly of Newburgh, NY passed away on July 28, 2021 at Hospice House. Beloved husband of Diane Pullaro, and the late Leslie.  Preceded in death by his father Meredith, mother Violet, and brother Steven.

Bob was born on January 28, 1947 in Newburgh, NY where he lived most of his life. After graduating from high school where he participated in speed skating, track, and football, he joined the Army, spending two years with the First Calvary Division in Viet Nam where he received several medals including the Purple Heart.

After his release from the army, he went to work for New York Telephone Company which eventually became Verizon when he retired in 2002.

Bob enjoyed golfing, painting, drawing, telling stories, and traveling throughout the world.

Bob is also survived by his son Michael Westfall (Debbie), daughter Erin Westfall, sister Pat Crawford (Kevin), brother Fred Westfall, step-sons Bill, Brian, and Matt Pullaro, his seven wonderful grandchildren Michael, Ryan, Carolyn, Christian, Sydney, Maelie, and Grayson, and many nieces and nephews.

    To my dearest big brother Bob: You were always my hero. Your bravery in the face of adversity throughout your life was always evident, and from the time I could remember, I always wanted to be like you when I grew up. Your sense of humor, the depth of love you had for friends and family, your compassion for those less fortunate, and your generosity knew no bounds. It was so wonderful to spend time together here in Florida and I will forever be honored to have been by your side to rub your back and feet, walking you “home” along with Diane and brother Fred. I will cherish every memory I have of you and look forward with anticipation for our reunion one day in Heaven. With all my love, your little sister Pat
