Altamont - Robert James Magil of Altamont, NY and Englewood, FL, peacefully passed away to Heaven and Home on November 29, 2021, after a brief illness. Bob was born on November 11, 1945 in Schenectady, NY to Stanley and Sonia Magilnicki and was a graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School and Siena College.

He lived a life of integrity, kindness, and love, and had a heart devoted to God, his family, and his country.

Bob had a 30 year career with NYS as an Information Security Manager. He was admired and respected by his colleagues. It was another place where his wisdom and integrity were on full display. 

He enjoyed life and he enjoyed people. A favorite past-time was fly fishing with friends and family in the Adirondack Mountains and along the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Bob will be deeply missed by his wife of 51 years, Mary Lou (nee Heron), his sons Christopher and Daniel, his daughter-in-law Cate and his four grandchildren, Madison Magil, Katelyn Magil, Molly Magil, and Ian Magil, who were the pride and joy of his life. His large extended Heron clan, his church family, and his friends and neighbors will all sorely feel his absence.

Our loss is Heaven's gain.

A private funeral service will take place at a later date.

Robert’s family has requested memorial donations be made to IAM Missions, 114 Rock Road, Berne NY, 12023.
