Obituary of Robert L. Hathaway
Robert L. Hathaway passed away Tuesday, March 14, at his home surrounded by his family.
Born April 19, 1932 in Saratoga Springs, Bob was the son of Arthur and Margaret Hathaway.
Husband, Dad, and Papa were Bob’s favorite words. He was married 64 years to his wife, Peggy, before she passed away in 2017, spending the last few of those years taking care of Peggy as she fought Alzheimer’s. Bob and Peg raised 6 children and he was the best Dad and Papa, spending too many hours to count, teaching and watching his children and grandchildren play sports and attending various school events.
Bob had several jobs throughout his working career, but his favorite were the more than 30 years he spent working for the Town of Saratoga as Town Justice, Supervisor and Building Inspector.
Survivors include his children, Bob (Sue) Hathaway of North Carolina, Jeff (Donna) Hathaway of Connecticut, Kristie Hathaway of Massachusetts, Terri (Mark) Sullivan of Schuylerville, Bill (Jenny) Hathaway of Ohio, and Kelley Peluso of Schuylerville; 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; his brother, Don Hathaway and sister, Jeannie (Ed) Gailor of Connecticut; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by two brothers, George Hathaway and Tom Hathaway, and two sisters, Helen Brown and Josie DeGregory.
