Robert L "Bucky" Albright, 78, of Copake passed away peacefully on April 15, 2021 at Columbia Memorial Hospital. He was born in Great Barrington, MA on December 30, 1942 to the late Harold and Mildred (Rogers) Albright. Bucky worked as a heavy equipment operator for the Columbia County Highway Department for many years until his retirement.

Bucky enjoyed many things like hunting, golfing, playing cards & cornhole, but most of all he loved spending time with his family; especially attending his grandchildren's sporting events. He will be remembered for his zest for life, outgoing personality and the ability to strike up a conversation with anyone at any time.
