Cornwall, NY formerly Highland Mills, NY

Robert “Bob” Willis, a former Highland Mills resident, entered into eternal rest on September 2, 2020 at his home. He was 82 years old.

The son of the late John D. Willis, Sr. and Elizabeth (Emmons) Willis, Bob was born on July 11, 1938 in Raritan Township, NJ.

Bob was a retired General Foreman at Arvin Gym, U.S.M.A., West Point, NY. Bob also worked as a Security Supervisor at the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets for twenty years and previously served as a part-time Patrolman for the Town of Woodbury Police Department for ten years.

The greatest joy of Bob’s life was his family. Whether helping with an at home project or cheering on his grandkids at sporting events Bob was always there. To know Bob was to know his family. Bob was also a lifelong fan of the N.Y. Mets, Dallas Cowboys and Army Football. Go Army!

The family would also like to thank Dr. Gregg Lanier and his staff at the Westchester County Medical Center.
