MOREAU - Robert A. Rabe of the Town of Moreau passed away at his home. Bob was born in Queens, NY, to Gertrude and William Rabe. After serving in the US Naval Air Force he studied at The Academy of Advanced Traffic to become a Certified Traffic Manager. He managed a moving and storage company in Queens, NY, for 20 years. In 1970 he and his wife, Audrey, purchased a small moving company and moved to South Glens Falls. In 1985 when Dewey’s Van Service was sold it was a Top Quality North American Van Lines Agency.

While living on Long Island, Bob was an active church member, Sunday School teacher, ordained Elder, and star catcher on the church softball team.

Bob was predeceased by his beloved daughter Claudia, two sisters, a brother, a niece, and two nephews.

Rejoicing in a life well lived are his wife of nearly seventy years Audrey, his devoted daughter Melissa, and his nieces, nephews, and friends.
