  • OBITUARY

    Robert (Bobby) Diskin passed away on October 21, 2021. Bobby was born on December 5, 1930 to Jacob and Rebecca Diskin.  He grew up in Glens Falls, NY with his three brothers, Edward, Samuel, and Bernard; his parents and brothers predeceased him.

    In the early 1950s Bobby served in the US Navy and worked at the Pentagon.  He also spent time on the USS Samuel B Roberts.

    In 1995, Bobby and Alice Rich married and shared travels and adventures to places in various parts of the world. His wonderful wife, Alice, passed away in 2006.

    Bobby was the first of his family to graduate from college. He earned a BBA from Georgia State University. He went on to become a real estate analyst for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He retired in 1985.

    Alice and Bobby were respected members of Shearith Israel Synagogue. They were fixtures there and made the Shearith Israel community part of their family.

    Bobby is survived by Alice’s three children including Marilyn (Yale) Shure, Elliott (Charlotte) Rich, and Steve (Anita) Rich as well as a wonderful crowd of grandchildren and cousins.

    He is also survived by his niece, Marcia (Gregory) Ringo, nephews, Barry Diskin (Nancy), Alan Diskin (Linda), great nephews Brian Ringo (JC), Jonathan Ringo, Cameron Diskin (Amy), and his great niece, Tybee Diskin.

    His nephew, Mark Diskin, predeceased Bobby in November 2000.

    Bobby was genuinely committed to improving the lives of his family and friends. His kindness was among his most identifiable attributes. This was demonstrated by his consistent efforts to help anyone in need along with his devotion to caring for members of his family during the final chapters of their lives.

    Arrangements are being handled by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    Our deepest condolences to the entire extended families. Bob was the kindest, most gentle and sweetest of men - a real mensch. Always a smile on his face, a kind word or a quip on his lips, a warm handshake or hug. Many happy hours were spent with him at his beloved CSI. His passing is a tremendous loss for all of us who knew him. May his memory be for a blessing.

  • Neil Galanti

    My childhood memories are filled with visits to the Diskin residence on Cumberland Rd to be with our dear friend Mark. I remember "Uncle Bob" as one of the most kind and caring people in our community. I feel fortunate and blessed to have known him. I'm certain his kindness and genuine caring had more of an impact on others lives than he was aware. Love to the entire Diskin family.

  • ~Howie and Andrea Seidel Slomka, Liana, Ari and Gil

    Bob sat behind us in shul throughout our kids' childhoods, giving him a front-row seat to our family's Shabbat morning shenanigans. For their Bat/Bar Mitzvah divrei Torah we coached them to speak slowly and clearly "so Mr. Diskin can hear you in the back row." We have missed being with Bob and everyone during the past 18 months and, as we return, we will feel his absence profoundly. We adored Alice and Bob. May their memories be for a blessing.

  • Pam Hoffman Lowe

    My condolences to the family. I knew Bob as a dental patient where I once worked. He was always very nice. Bob had known my grandfather at Shearith Israel, which made knowing Bob even more special, as I had never met my grandfather. May Bob's memory be a blessing.

  • Dan Gulden

    It should have been of course that he (Bob) was the moral force.

    October 21, 2021 , 08:34 PM


  • Dan and Candice Gulden

    Bob was the kind of person who always asked your family, especially about Dan’s mom. He was more than a stalwart of the morning minyan. I became the moral force that motivated others to step up to the roles he had filled as he continued to attend in his later years. In post minyan breakfasts, his quietly delivered surprising puns regularly drew appreciation. A gentle and kind soul, We’ll miss you, Bob.

  • Nancy and Randy Gorod

    It goes without saying that Bob will be missed. He was special and made you feel very welcome. His memory will be a blessing.

    Bob was the nicest, sweetest person. He will be missed.
