Robert F. Lanoue

USN, WWII, Korea

Schuylerville, New York - 06-14-18


The family of Mr. Robert F. Lanoue has requested Patriot Guard Rider participation in his military honors funeral services.  Robert, 91, passed on Saturday, April 27, 2018.

Born in Cohoes, NY Bob joined the US Navy, serving during WWII at sea in the Pacific Theater under combat, and during the occupation of Japan. During his service, Bob earned the rank of Petty Officer 3rd Class, with a rating of Boiler Technician (BT3).  He re-enlisted during the Korean War and remained in the Navy until his honorable discharge, when he returned to Cohoes, then settling in Melrose, NY. Bob worked for many years at the Mohawk Paper Mills, afterward returning to the water as a merchant marine working on commercial tug boats and captaining barges on the canal system and coastal waters of New York.

Portions of the above narrative are contained in Mr. Lanoue's obituary, available for viewing online at the Flynn Brothers Funeral Home website here:
