For many in Greenwood Lake, Bobby will be remembered as our past Police Chief and an active member of the community. He will also be remembered as a family man who, along with his wife Annie, raised two amazing children in the Village who both went on to become police officers. For me, Bobby will be remembered as a close friend and someone I respected immensely and relied on often. Many will undoubtedly miss Bobby and our community will not be the same without him. Rest in peace, my friend.
On behalf of the Greenwood Lake Village Board, we send our condolences and prayers to the entire Rabbitt family.
The wake for Robert “Bobby” Rabbitt will be held on Wed., Mar. 1 from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Strong-Basile Funeral Home, located at 4 Oak St. in Greenwood Lake. A funeral mass will be celebrated on Thurs., Mar. 2 at 11 a.m. at Holy Rosary Church, located at 41 Windermere Ave. in Greenwood Lake.
