Obituary

BEACON - Robert A. Outer, a local area resident and community advocate for nearly 60 years, passed away on Sunday, March 29, 2020. He was 79.
Son of the late Arnold and Hilda Outer, Bob was born in Paterson, NJ on August 22, 1940.
Bob studied broadcasting at Boston University and after graduating in 1962, he began a career with the Hudson Valley radio station WBNR, where he remained for 42 years working in many capacities as the company continued to grow. Known as the “Voice of Army Football”, he was the station’s play-by-play announcer for West Point Army Football for 36 years, and he truly loved traveling with the team and meeting the cadets. He went on to work for the Hudson Valley Renegades in 2005 and retired in 2016.
Bob always had a gift of gab with a happy smile and a firm handshake. He loved to laugh. While he enjoyed many hobbies such as woodworking and yardwork, his true passion was community service and using his skills and experience to help as many people as possible.
Throughout his career, he was a member of the City of Beacon’s Planning Board and Recreation Commission and helped organize the “Spirit of Beacon Day”. He was also instrumental in the fundraising effort to build Dutchess Stadium and bring minor league baseball to the Hudson Valley.
He was an active member of countless local non-profit and community service organizations, including the Beacon Booster Club, the Dutchess County Heart Association, Save Highland Hospital Committee, Dutchess County Economic Development Corporation, United Way of Dutchess County, the Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce (Past President), the Foundation for Vassar Brothers Medical Center, Hudson Valley Hospice, Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson, the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, the Exchange Club of Southern Dutchess (Past President & Founding Member), the Beacon Salvation Army Advisory Board (Past Chairman), the Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps (Honorary Life Member), and many more.
Bob was the recipient of several accolades such as the Chamber of Commerce Commitment to Community Award, the Lindsey Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award in Sports Broadcasting, the Exchange Club Meritorious Award for Service, the Community Foundation Honor, and the Army Sports Hall of Fame Award. Bob received one of the top honors bestowed by the Army West Point Athletic Association when he was awarded the Distinguished Service Award. He was especially proud and honored to have been selected, as it is not presented annually, but only in the event that the athletic department identifies a well-deserving recipient for his or her significant contributions to the intercollegiate program.
On June 28, 1970, he married Louise Outer in Newburgh. Louise survives at home in Beacon.
Additional survivors include his daughter, Debra Fisher & her husband Jeff of North Carolina; his daughter, Jessica Outer of Virgina; his brother, Walter Hartley of Washington; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, William Obscherning, Philip & Sharri Krupoff, Martin & Julie Krupoff, and Stuart & Chung Krupoff; as well as many nieces, nephews, and other loving relatives & friends.
He was predeceased by his parents as well as his sister, Linda Obscherning.
A private service was held at Fairview Cemetery in Beacon.
Donations in Bob’s memory may be made to the local charity of your choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of the McHoul Funeral Home of Fishkill, Inc., 1089 Main Street, Fishkill. For online tributes, please visit Bob’s Book of Memories at www.mchoulfuneralhome.com.

My condolences to you and your family. I was privileged to work with him professionally and more importantly i was so very lucky to have called him my friend. Although we moved away I still checked in with him now and again. He was a great human being!

The staff of Pamal Broadcasting (owners of WBNR/ WSPK and other stations) mournes the death of a veteran broadcaster and founder of these radio stations. Bob's years leading WBNR and broadcaster of Army West Point Football are legendary in the history of our stations. His community service defined what local radio is all about. Bob's smile and enthusiasm is missed both on the air and off. We wish his family peace and condolences.

I only knew Bob from being at Renegades games. He always had a smile on his face and would always stop to say Hello to the fans. Sorry for your loss.
