Robert Litolff Obituary

Robert J. Litolff
Robert J. Litolff

February 16, 1937 - April 5, 2018
Born in Rochester, New York
Resided in Greece, New York


Robert J. Litolff

Greece: at age 81, left this earth on Thursday, April 5, 2018 and is now rejoined above with his parents, Charles H. Litolff and Frances Patnode. He is predeceased by his siblings, Winifred Downs, Walter Litolff, Carol Bertrand and Edward Litolff.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Jane Litolff. In life, he was a devoted father to his five children, Lou Ann (Alvin) Hill, Brenda (Thomas) Barber, Robert C. Litolff, Donald M. Litolff (Bonnie DeZarn) and Amy (Halford) Johnson. He is also survived by two sisters, Marion Buczek and Midge (Jim) Berry.
Bob was a lifelong resident of Rochester and graduated from Madison High School. A hardworking family provider, he delved in many ventures through the years. His tireless efforts as a father required working multiple jobs while never missing special events for his children. In his early life he was a security guard at Gannett and a real estate agent. He retired from Dupont, after 30 years of service, in the Quality Control department. He proudly served his country in the United States Army in the bomb demolition squad. His solace was found fishing, especially with his sons, family camping trips, photography and mentoring at St. Joseph’s Villa, where he spent some years as a youth. He was a Boy Scout leader when his sons were young and a supporter of the Autism community.
He and Jane enjoyed a collaborative and loving relationship, heartwarmingly demonstrating their affection outwardly. Bob was a committed family man and his children agree that despite his meager beginnings, his legacy is that he created a close and loving family. He leaves behind numerous loving memories that will live on through them.
The pride and joy of his life were his ten grandchildren and five great grandchildren. They were the recipients of a grandfather who was their greatest supporter and always had a joke on his lips. His large and extended family includes nieces and nephews who will remember his fun loving nature. Bob was well known in the community with many close friends that cared for him deeply, as shown by their heartfelt kindness during this difficult time. The family appreciates them greatly.
Bob’s services have been postponed and will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his memory to Mary Cariola Children’s Center. This agency continues to provide immeasurable services to his grandson with Autism. Visit their website, or mail to 1000 Elmwood Ave, Suite 100, Rochester, NY 14620.

His sky blue eyes and beautiful smile will be missed.
