Albany, NY - Robert “Bob” James Carmody, 70, passed away peacefully with his children by his side on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at Haywood Regional Medical Center in Clyde, NC.

Born in Forest Hills, NY, he was the son of the late Charles and Elizabeth Carmody. After receiving his Associate Degree, Bob proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps. While living in Albany, NY, he worked for Verizon for 30 years including installing the first 9-1-1 lines in the city. Bob loved fishing and boating on Green Lake in the Adirondacks, snowmobiling, creating in and out of his workshop, completing crossword puzzles, traveling to the islands and rooting for the NY Yankees and NC State Wolfpack. However, spending time with his children and grandchildren brought him the most joy, especially during retirement on the gulf coast of FL and in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC.

He is survived by his children, Michael R. Carmody (Alicia Albee) of Weaverville, NC, and Jacqueline E. Rosati (John) of Asheville, NC; his grandchildren, Quinn Carmody, Thomas Carmody, Dominic Rosati, Jack Rosati, and Kacey Smith; his brother, Michael of Pompano Beach, FL; his niece, Kimber-Lee LaVenture (David) of Niskayuna, NY; and his nephew, Tanner Holford (Suzanne) of Colonie, NY.

He was predeceased by his mother, father and brothers, John and Tim. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no public celebration at this time. A celebration of his life in Albany will be announced when it is safe for all to attend.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Bob's memory may be made to the American Heart Association at: www2.heart.org/goto/BobCarmody 

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Carmody family.

Michael, Jacqueline and family, I just heard about Bob's passing and I am so sorry for your loss. Bob and I have worked together (Wells Fargo Advisors) for the last 17 years and he was truly one of a kind. I will miss him very much as we became good friends over these many years. I loved hearing about his fishing exploits in Florida as well as recently how happy he was that he moved to NC. May he rest in peace and I also hope you are comforted by his memory. God bless!

Bob and I went to high school together in Pompano Beach. I’ve only spoken with him one time since graduation and that was a few years back. Your dad or granddad was a good guy and a friend. Bob joined the Marine Corps I join the Army as a lot of us from our class and any class surrounding us we’re on our way to Vietnam in those days. God bless BOB and all of you, Stanley

I received this sad news today. Bob was one of my close friends, many years ago, in Pompano Beach, Florida. Our lives' paths led us to different locations, however, the great memories remain close to my heart. Rest in peace, my dear friend.
