Obituary of Gregory Tobin
Greg "Itchy" Tobin, 62, of West Nyack, passed away on March 1st peacefully and unexpectedly at home. He was born in Brooklyn, NY to the late Gerard and Lillian Tobin. Greg was a retired police officer of the Clarkstown Police Department. He was also a 44 year "life" member of the Nanuet Fire Dept. and served many terms as President. He had a passion for fishing, golfing, and righting wrongs. He lit up a room with a booming voice and infectious laugh. Also and more importantly he was a tremendous advocate for wounded warriors and touched the hearts of many soldiers and their families especially the 75th Ranger Regiment. He helped so many along the way. Greg will continue to be in our hearts as a loving husband, father, pop pop, brother, uncle, and cousin; as well as a loving friend to all.
