Obituary

Troy- Robert A. Romano passed away April 7, 2021 at Samaritan Hospital after battling cancer. Robert worked over 30 years at the Vanderhyden Hall taking care of the disabled. He loved his coworkers and those he cared for. He often used his own resources to help them celebrate holidays and special events. He was a generous and thoughtful neighbor and was known to engage in dancing in the street with his neighbors whenever he could. He was an avid piano player and enjoyed sharing his talents, especially Jingle Bell Rock.

Robert is survived by his parents Rom and Addie Romano, sister Joanne (Romano) McCarthy, nephew and Godson Sean (Amy) Looby, nephew and Matthew Looby, and nieces Meghan (Brian) Straight, Emily (Eric) Bergdoll.

A special thank you to the staff of Samaritan Hospital Emergency Department who showed great compassion during a difficult time.
