Bobby was born to Robert and Audrey King on March 24, 1965 in Mineola, New York. Bobby's early years were spent on Long Island; however, his family has long had a connection to the Ellenville area having spent summers and weekends here. Mr. and Mrs. King still have a home in Ulster Heights. In 1980 Bobby, a sophomore from Hauppauge High School, became a member of Ellenville's Class of 1983. Along with his academic program at Ellenville, he attended the B.O.C.E.S. Auto Mechanics program.
Over the years Bobby developed many skills. He was a Master Carpenter who made many beautiful pieces of furniture for his family, his friends, and his firehouse. Bobby loved being with his family. He adored his children: Thomas, Elizabeth, and Stephen; and spent many hours taking them to the park, fishing, bike riding, and even in-line skating. He and his loving wife,Theresa, enjoyed cooking and gardening together.
Bobby had a profound appreciation for the environment and public service. It was his deep respect for humanity that prompted him to become a member of the Fire Department of New York's Engine 33-Ladder 9 located on Great Jones Street in Lower Manhattan. The Ellenville School and community are proud of this alumnus and are grateful for being a part of this fallen firefighter's life. Our condolences and warm wishes go out to all of Bobby's family, friends, and his FDNY comrades.
