Bob, Robyn & Heather and families, I'm so very sorry for your loss. You were all very young when I used to babysit you. Our parents were good friends (Lee & Donna Boyles) and our families spent a lot of time together through the fire dept. activities. Our dads worked together to start GLAS. Peace to you all.

It's with sadness we acknowledge the passing of Bob Sturdevant, Jr., offering the condolences of many from the Canastota Christian community at the loss of this significant human being who touched the lives of so many, and served so tireless in so many different ways. As the Chairman of the Canastota Area Assn. of Churches Volunteer Appreciation events for over a decade, I know full well the impact of such a life of service as Bob had.on the Fire Service and his local church in Clockville. Such a man cannot easily be replaced, but hopefully his life will draw new young people into the volunteer roles he embraced so willingly.and serve as a legacy to his memory.
