Obituary of Robert Saunders

It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Robert Osborne Albin Dwight Saunders, known affectionately to his family and close friends as “Bobby.”  Bobby departed this life on Sunday, July 16, 2017 after a long illness.  He will be sorely missed by us all. 

The Wake will be held on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 2:00 to 8:00 PM.

A Funeral Service will be held at 6:00 PM at the Marine Park Funeral Home located at 3024 Quentin Road, Brooklyn, New York 11234.

A committal service will be held Monday, July 24, 2017 at The Green-Wood Crematory.  All those who would like to attend can meet 9:30 AM at Marine Park Funeral Home.  A funeral procession will begin at 10:00 AM.

In lieu of flowers, the family greatly appreciates donations.

One of the organizations the family suggests is Mustard Seed Communities (“MSC”).  This 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations in society.  MSC began in 1978 as a home for children with disabilities in Kingston, Jamaica and has expanded to the United States to help young adults.  MSC is also involved in numerous outreach and community development initiatives.

                           What God Hath Promised

                  God hath not Promised skies of blue,

           flower strewn pathways all our lives through;

         God hath not promised sun without rain, joy without

Sorrow, peace without pain.  But God has promised strength

           for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way.

         Grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing

                         Sympathy, undying love.
