Robert George Bamann, 90, leaves behind a loving family and many valued friends and acquaintances. He died peacefully in his sleep on November 28, 2021, after suffering from dementia and kidney disease. A lifelong resident of Irondequoit other than time serving the United States Army in Korea, he dedicated some 50 years of volunteer service to the St. Paul Boulevard Fire Department including time as ambulance crew member, firefighter, fire chief, commissioner, and district treasurer. He also served his church and community through dedication to the Choir Ministry of St. Margaret Mary Church and the American Legion. He was a graduate of the Aquinas Institute of Rochester (1949) and Assumption College (Windsor, Ont.) and was a partner of the Art Bamann and Sons Insurance Agency. His love of his family, friends, history, and the outdoors was shared through travel, many experiences in the Adirondacks, and hunting and fishing in western New York.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Elaine Lewis Bamann; son William Bamann (Elizabeth); sons David Bamann and Paul Bamann; and daughter Susan Bamann (Allen Poyner).
