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.

Condolences from family and friends

To the Carmody Family, I was so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We worked together at Verizon. He was a great guy and I'm sure he will be missed by many. I hope he is now at peace. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and may his memory always remain in your hearts.
