Troy & Scott Ashdown and family

Dear Paul & Staff - I wanted to thank you for all your help with my father, Howard Fox's funeral. We were so pleased with how everything was handled by you and your staff. Paul, I know that my niece really appreciated your guidance when she did the readings in church.
Evelyn Hopp

Dear Paul and Staff - When you took our choices and put them into action (I am an OCD perfectionist) I could not have orchestrated the whole process better if I had directed it myself. You went above and beyond. It was phenomenal. I mean phenomenal!!!

"Personally, I think you have really answered your true calling in life, to help us deal with the death of a loved one."
Sincerely, Terry Vinning

Dear Paul and Staff - I just would like to thank you for your kindness that you gave to my husband John, during these sad times of losing both of his parents. The professionalism that you showed was outstanding but most of all your compassion and caring meant so much to us all.
Blessings & Prayers, Nancy & John Napoleon

Dear Paul and Staff - Jeff's passing was as much a shock for you, as for our family. Your kind, caring ways; your gentle guidance through those first few days after his death and ultimately through the calling hours and funeral - you never failed to be there when we needed you and continue to do so now. Our community is extremely fortunate to have you here to respond and assist families at such difficult times.
Joanne Fredenberg and Family

Paul and Staff - Your compassion helped us deal with our loss, and your professionalism was unsurpassed in helping us plan his wake and service. It truly was a celebration of David's life.
Diane Blakley

Dear Paul and Staff - Thank you!! Thank you!! For the manner in which you handled Tony's funeral. We were very pleased. God bless you!!
Anne Greco & son Tony

Dear Paul & Staff - We cannot begin to express our gratitude to you for all you did to make the passing of Mom easier for us to get through. Every aspect was perfect, from making the arrangements, to making mom beautiful, to decorating with mom's things, the funeral and graveside. We will never forget your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time in our lives.
Cindy and John Belsito

Dear Paul,
Words cannot express how grateful my sister and I are for all you did for our father, Thomas Turck's, funeral. You and your staff were always professional, courteous and attentive to all of our requests. From the time that Joanne and I sat with you to discuss and finalize the details for the funeral, through the burial, you could not have made it easier for us, and your attention to detail was excellent. Our father would have appreciated all the military detail, including the Army insignia on the hearse and the presenting of the three flags at the cemetery.
Joanne and I both thank you!

Dear Paul and Staff - Kind, gentle, efficient, professional this is what you are. Sincere thanks for all that was done for Ella and our family.
In Sorrow, Paul Panesa

Paul and Staff - Thank you for all you did to make sure Harold was laid to rest with lots of love and dignity. I appreciate your kind, courteous and professional service.
Love, Dolores Leonard

Dear Paul and Staff - There are not enough words to thank you all. You are very special to me and I will never forget and will always be grateful to all of you.
Very Truly Yours
Kathy Napierkowski

Resided in Kingston, NY


Robert “Espo” Esposito, Jr, 60, died Wednesday, September 27th at home, surrounded by family.

Born in New Rochelle, he was a son of the late Robert E. & Mary Esposito, Sr.

Bob retired from the United States Postal Service in 2009, after having served 32 years with them as a devoted mail carrier, never missing a day in the rain, sleet or snow - as all postal workers do. It was during his last months as a mail carrier where he met his beloved wife and they struck up a friendship that would eventually lead to a loving, supportive marriage. It was here that he earned the name “Espo”, a nickname that would follow him for years to come.

It was through his friends at the Post Office that he became an avid bowler as part of The J.R Logging/Frontier Bowling League and joined a team Bob grew incredibly fond of - appropriately called “Going Postal” at The Kingston Lanes Bowling Alley. It became one of his favorite pastimes and Tuesday was always a day he looked forward to thanks to the people he was surrounded by in this league. In 2016, he was presented with a special “Tough Man” Award, for his dedication to the league even throughout his treatments for his illness. The family is especially grateful to everyone here for the fond memories he would often recount, as well as the massive outpouring of love and support during a bowling fundraiser earlier this year.

After retirement from the post office, Bob joined the team at Headless Horseman Hayrides, where he did seasonal work from 2011 - 2016. He loved scaring the daylights out of people and chasing them with the chainsaws on the trails. He met many incredible people here and his family is forever grateful to Mike and Nancy Jubie, as well everyone he worked with for giving him an opportunity and an environment that allowed him to always have something to look forward to and escape the troubles of his illness.

Bob’s favorite activities with his family included everything from NASCAR, METS Baseball, and JETS Football. They attended many games and races together and are grateful for the memories these sporting events gave their family. Even more then sports, he was an avid fan of the AMC series The Walking Dead. He enjoyed going to many different fan events, (most recently Fan Premiere at Madison Square Garden in 2015) where he was able to enjoy quality family time and meet multiple members of the cast.

Bob had a strength that was unmatched and it was because of all the love and support he received that he had always been able to beat the odds. His family cannot mention enough how grateful we are to have seen him surrounded by so much love and to have the support of everyone around him. Our “Bobert” will be greatly missed and forever loved.

Bob is survived by his wife, Janice Hall Esposito of Kingston, a step-daughter, Samantha Pacheco of Kingston, a sister, Madelyn Stuteville and her husband Rees of Klamath Falls, Oregon and a brother, Ronnie Esposito of South Hampton, NY, three nieces, Naomi, Lily and Jasmine, a great niece, Serenity and a great nephew, Linkin. Bob’s beloved emotional support dog, Meeka also survives.

Bob will be reposing at the Simpson-Gaus Funeral Home, 411 Albany Ave on Monday, October 2, 2017 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM.

Funeral Service and Interment will be held privately.

The family requests that memorial donations be made to the American Cancer Society, Memorial Processing, 6725 Lyons St., East Syracuse, NY 13057.
