North Greenbush- Robert A. Nunziato, Sr., 75, passed away Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016 surrounded by his loving family after a heroic fight. Bob was born in Albany and was the son of the late Carmen and Genevieve (Kutryb) Nunziato, and son-in-law of Joseph, Sr. and Lucy Thorpe. A graduate of St. Joseph's Academy, Albany, New York, Bob then went on to manage The Trading Port in Albany for over 25 years.
