Robert Alan LaRue

February 27, 2021

Robert Alan LaRue, 62, of Penet Square, LaFargeville, passed away peacefully at Rome Memorial Hospital on Saturday, February 27, 2021, after a brief illness.

Born in Watertown on November 24, 1958, son of Edward J. LaRue and Mary Hesler LaRue of Clayton, Bob lived in and around Clayton and LaFargeville his entire life. A graduate of Thousand Islands CSD in 1976, Bob began his working life as a flagman for various road crews in Jefferson County and later worked as a greenskeeper at area golf courses.

A fan of drag racing, Bob traveled widely with a group of friends to attend races. Bob was also an accomplished hobbyist, constructing numerous hand-crafted wooden boat models, many of which still reside with family members. In his later years, Bob became an avid reader of adventure fiction. He was a former member of the American Legion Colon-Couch Post 821, Clayton and enjoyed golf.

Bob is survived by three brothers, Edward J. (Denise) LaRue, Jr., Athens, Georgia, John T. "Jack" (Lisa), Clayton, and William P. "Bill", LaFargeville, an aunt, three nieces, a nephew, and a myriad of cousins.

There are no services at this time. Arrangements are entrusted with Cummings Funeral Service, Inc., Clayton and online condolences may be posted at www.cummingsfuneral.com. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Service (TIERS), P. O. Box 524, Clayton, NY 13624.

Dear Ed, Jack & Bill, I was so sad to hear the news. As the "baby of the LaRue family", Bob was treasured by all the cousins, especially me! What a little cute-ster! So cuddly, warm & sensitive when i first met him when i was a little 10 year old girl, & then for his entire life. I would dearly love to see lots & lots of photos of him posted somewhere, as i missed out on his company for several of his 62 years! Also would love to see photos of the boat models he made! Let me know where to look for them. Sending much love...

Kris and I are so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. The LaRue boys were a bright spot in my earlier life. Bobby was a 'character' and was always fun to be around. but then, all the LaRue boys were. Especially the late night 'fried egg sandwiches.' We are praying for you all. Find peace and trust he is well. God bless you all. Tom
