Robert King Carpenter was born on September 13, 1933, to Marguerite King Carpenter and Lyle Carpenter. Bob passed away just a few days after celebrating his 87th birthday with his family and one of his favorite meals, a perch fry.
Our beloved patriarch served in the United States Army from 1953-1955. He owned the family business, “Carpenter Trucking” until it was sold. He was a skilled mason, electrician and carpenter. He remodeled several buildings in Plattsburgh to improve the community. Bob was very proud of his North Country roots and spent many years hunting, camping, fishing and skiing with family and friends. He loved dancing to music from the 50’s, playing cards and a board game he invented. His favorite hobby was creating furniture and other pieces in his wood shop.
Bob married Barbara McVeigh on December 26, 1955 and they raised 4 children; Peggy McCartney, Robby (Cindy) Carpenter, Patty (Pat) Goodell, and Pammy Maloney. He is also survived by 8 grandchildren; Randi Christodoulou, Kelli Gottschall, Jimmy McCartney, RJ and Mat Maloney, Kylie King and Christopher and Brian Goodell, 7 great-grandchildren with the 8th due any day, his sister Dorothy Somich and his brother Charles Carpenter.
He was predeceased by his parents, his wife and son-in-law Louis Maloney.
Visitation will be private for the family. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, September 22 at 10:00am at St. Peter’s Church. Interment will follow in the parish cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to Hospice of the North Country, CV-TEC or Shriners.
Arrangements are entrusted to Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad Street, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. Online condolences may be offered at

Tim and I were sorry to learn of Bob's passing, but glad we had the chance to know him as a friend and neighbor. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to trap and spay Little Blackie - I never had any luck in that department, but did manage to trap at least one other cat and get him neutered. On the last attempt of the season I did manage to trap a neighborhood possum who sprung a humane trap Bob had let me put on his porch, so that goes to show how welcoming Bob was to all the creatures around his house.

I have two objects that Bob gifted to me, both handmade - a Christmas pin and a box to hold tissues. They are both beautiful and I will treasure them. But the biggest gifts Bob gave us were his friendship, warmth, and humor. He made our neighborhood and all of us who lived here better for his presence.
