Robert W. Smacher, 91, of Endicott, went to rest on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. He is welcomed home by his loving parents, Steven and Stella Smacher, and beloved brothers, Raymond and Richard. His memory will be cherished by his lifelong friend, Jane Linnell, their children, Vicki Jacobs (Duane Setzer), Robert M. Smacher, Darcie Riek (Kevin), Patrick Smacher and Thomas Smacher (Michelle), his 10 grandchildren, their spouses and three great-grandchildren.
Robert was a proud veteran of the US Airforce and IBM Corp Retiree. To all who loved him, Robert was a wise and quiet man with a gentle soul and big heart. Endlessly proud of his family, Robert was a constant source of support and guidance in trying times. He has passed on to his children and grandchildren his value of hard work, the ethics of right and wrong, and the importance of an underrated sense of humor. Robert was fearless and unabashedly self-sufficient, readily sharing his broad knowledge of all things DIY and Gardening with those with a question or need.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday 10:30 am at St. Ambrose Church, 203 Washington Avenue, Endicott. Entombment will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in Robert’s memory may be made to Mercy House.
