On the evening of October 4, 2022, Robertus Camillus Boon of Brockport, NY died at the age of 94 after a short illness. Robert was born in 1928 in Roosendaal, Netherlands and he and his family lived through World War II in German occupied Holland. Robert attended medical school in Amsterdam where he trained as a General Surgeon, and where he met his first wife Leonie Boon. After completion of his training in 1960, he and Leonie moved to the United States where he began a new residency as a General Surgeon. He realized a different calling and decided to retrain as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and Endocrinologist.
After completion of training, he moved to Brockport, NY in 1970 where he practiced until his retirement at the age of 79. Robert’s first wife passed away in 1986 and he was blessed to find love again with Cathy Boon-Sabo in 2006.
When Robert wasn’t working, he was always tinkering, fixing up the home, and telling jokes. He loved telling jokes! Robert was a beloved physician to his many patients and was deeply respected as a dedicated and skilled physician among his colleagues, and within the medical community. Shortly before his retirement, the Lakeside Obstetrics unit was dedicated in his honor.
He was known to his family as a dedicated husband, loving father, and generous and kind hearted human being. He is survived by his “Darling” wife, Cathy Boon-Sabo, his two children David Michael Boon (Lisa) and Maurits Steven Boon (Carin), grandchildren Nolan, Isabella, Nathan, Charlie, and by his step-children, Stephanie Dinwiddie (Jason) and Dominick Sidari (Amber), and step-grandchildren, Cole and Zachary.
