Bob was a loyal and active member of the Teamsters Local 317, spending nearly 30 years working for the P&C Companies. He was an avid dog lover and with his wife, Shelley, raised and trained many beautiful retrievers over a 40-year span. A communicant of St. Joseph’s Church, he would joyfully attend mass at Most Holy Rosary Church and Assumption Church.
Surviving are his wife, Rochelle Bannon-DeSormeau; daughters and son-in-law, Brea and Jason Allers of Syracuse and Tegan DeSormeau of Camillus; sons and daughter-in-law, Zachary of Camillus and Garson and Lauren of Taunton; grandchildren, Alivia, Wyatt and Evelyn Allers; brother and sister-in-law, Albert and Sharon DeSormeau; and niece, Kim (John) Bell, all of Jamesville.
Rev. Frederick Mannara celebrated a funeral Mass at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 20 in Most Holy Rosary Church. Burial was private in Greenlawn Cemetery, Warners. Arrangements were by the Buranich Funeral Home, Camillus.
Bob will be remembered by his big heart, tremendous laugh and his unending love for his family. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
