Obituary of Robert C. Trolley

Robert “Bob” Trolley, age 83, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on July 14, 2019 at Medina Memorial Hospital. A lifelong Albion resident, Bob was born on September 6, 1935 to the late Robert and Lola (Grimes) Trolley. He graduated from Albion High School, and completed his Bachelor's degree from SUNY Morrisville. 

A hardworking man, he spent much of his life farming Trolley Farms, as well as working at SUNY College at Brockport. After retirement, he traveled the country with his wife of 56 years, the late Donna (Bennett) Trolley, in their motorhome, creating lasting friendships and memories throughout their travels. He loved country music and was an avid New York Yankees and Buffalo Bills fan, keeping up with the latest sports news wherever he was. 

He is survived by his companion, Donna Gaylord, his two children, Charles (Dawn) Trolley and Dawn (Doug) Rodas, three grandchildren, Erica (Mark) Kuntz, Brianna (Kenneth) Smith, and Rhiannon Trolley, and four great grandchildren, Klayton, Laylah, Julianna and Kinsley.

Private services were held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Hospice of  Orleans, 14080 Route 31 West, P.O. Box 489, Albion, NY 14411.
