Town of Wilton, NY Robert (Bob) J. Dickson, 77, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, at Saratoga Hospital after a long battle with multiple illnesses. He spent his last days surrounded by his loved ones, and his last minutes surrounded by his loved ones and an amazing staff of nurses and doctors that have been involved in his care for the past few months. Bob graduated from Saratoga Springs High School in 1958 and retired after 35 years, working as a Beaterman Engineer at SCA in South Glens Falls, NY. Bob spent his life taking care of others. He had a sometimes vulgar and hilarious sense of humor, and was still putting smiles on everyone's faces, even when he was hospitalized. He loved everyone around him and was the "guardian", always ensuring everyone was protected and taken care of. He spent his younger years playing in bands, racing cars, and living the "crazy" life with his brothers. His recent years were spent with his family, enjoying music, deer watching, and gold panning. He is predeceased by his mother Flossie Bouchard and his father Charles Edward Dickson.
