Robert J. Osmin

Robert J. “Bob” Osmin – 60 – of 13 East William St., Bath, died unexpectedly at his home.

Born in Wellsville, NY on June 27, 1961, he was the son of Floyd & Eloise (Spangenberg) Osmin.

Bob grew up in the Canisteo, Rexville & Arkport areas and was a graduate of Arkport Central School (class of 1980).  He later attended the Wellsville Campus of Alfred State College where he studied welding.

He was employed as a welder for several years at the former Foster-Wheeler Corporation in Dansville and for nearly 20 years worked as a “pruner” for Stutzman’s Tree Farm.

Moving to Texas, Bob owned & operated “Bob O’s Mow & Go” landscaping service for several years.  After Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas, he moved back to New York State and briefly resided in Avoca.  For a time, Bob again worked at Stutzman’s Tree Farm and later was employed at Gunlock Corporation in Wayland and Rent-A-Center in Bath.

Bob was a true outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing and simply taking long walks through the woods.  He also enjoyed spending time working in his vegetable garden.  He had a deep affection for animals and throughout the years owned several dogs.

He was preceded in death by his son, Nicholas “Nick” Osmin; his father, Floyd Osmin; and his brother, Mike Cady.

Surviving are 2 daughters, Erica (Casey) Bush of Avoca and Valerie (Derek) Ribble of Canisteo; 1 son, Nathan “Nate” Osmin of Hornell; his mother, Eloise Turner of Canisteo; 1 brother, James (Rosetta) Osmin of Hornell; 4 sisters, Mary Howell of Baltimore, MD, Patricia (David) Scouten of Hornell, Melissa (Bryan) Ladner of Bath and Debbie McGregor of Adrian, NY; 11 grandchildren; several nieces & nephews.
