Robert Presutti Obituary, Death Cause – We are very sorry to inform you that Robert Presutti, who had been a devoted volunteer for many years, has died away. He was a member of our organization for many years. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Since he signed up for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) in 2008, he has been actively volunteering for the organization in a variety of positions ever since, including with Pittsfield Tree Watch and Pittsfield Community Development.
Bob has logged more total volunteer hours with RSVP than any other single person since the beginning of that time period, giving him the lead over all other individuals combined. In addition to this, he played an important part in the growth of the chestnut tree orchard that can be found at Springside Park in Pittsfield, and he served on the RSVP Advisory Board between the years of 2011 and 2016.
During this time, he has also been a member of Pittsfield Community Development. In addition to that, he contributed his time to the Herbert Arboretum in a variety of different positions over the course of his career there. During the course of his volunteer work with RSVP, which lasted from 2010 to 2022 and consisted of a total of 10,362 hours, Bob made use of the information and experience that he had gained as an arborist.
Both of these accomplishments are noteworthy in their own right. The City of Pittsfield and RSVP would like to extend their most sincere gratitude to him for all of the significant contributions that he has made to the growth of our city. Additionally, we would like to extend our most heartfelt condolences to his family as well as his friends on the passing of their family member or friend.
