Bruce Dollinger Obituary

Bruce M. Dollinger, 83, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2023 at the VA Hospital in Syracuse, surrounded by his loving family. 


A graveside service in Bruce’s honor will be held in the spring.


Bruce was born on August 29, 1940 in Alexandria Bay, NY to the late Monroe and Catherine Dollinger. He graduated from Pulaski High school, and enlisted in the United States Air Force, serving his country abroad; being mostly stationed at Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador, Canada. In 1999 he married Sandra Robbins in Lacona, NY.


Bruce truly had a zest for life. He could always be found on the St. Lawrence River, watching the ships go by, or fishing. When he wasn’t on the water, Bruce loved watching TV programs like Gunsmoke, and spending time with family, either playing cards or hanging out with the great grandchildren. He was known for his sense of humor, and had an infectious smile.


Bruce is survived by his loving wife of over 23 years; Sandra, his children; Tom (Christina) Robinson, Kelly (Chet) Bush, Jamie (Melinda) Robinson, Christopher (Tammy) Robinson, Robin (Laurie) Dollinger, Dwayne (Kelly) Dollinger, and Bruce Dollinger; his siblings; Rita (Mike) Raus, Gail Gaston, Betty Newland, and Donna (Phil) Lee, as well as multiple nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Besides his parents, Bruce is predeceased by his son; Doug Dollinger.
