Roy Patrick Ano

SCHUYLER FALLS — Roy Patrick Ano, 57, of the Guide Board Road, Schuyler Falls, entered into eternal life, Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, with his loving family by his side, following a courageous battle with leukemia.

He was born in Plattsburgh, Dec. 1, 1955, the son of Harry and Vada (Fournier) Ano.

Roy grew up in AuSable Forks and graduated from AVCS with honors. He later attended SUNY Potsdam with an athletic scholarship, excelling in basketball and baseball. Roy, fondly known as "The Monger" was recently inducted into the AVCS hall of fame. Monger is well known in AuSable Forks and Peru and the Adirondacks as a great athlete, coach, and a person that always had a story to make you laugh.

Roy retired from Clinton Correctional facility in Jan. 2011 where he was a corrections counselor and proudly served as CSEA union president for several years.

He was a member of the original AuSable Forks fast pitch league and the formation of the AuSable Forks spirit baseball team. Roy was an avid outdoorsman, he especially enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons and brothers, or simply riding on his tractor on the farm. Whenever asked Roy proudly coached for his children's athletic teams, and attended all of their events.

Survivors include his loving wife, Laurie (Trombley) Ano; sons, Cordell, and Casey and fianc^e Jessica Rivers; his father, Harry Ano; sisters, Marilee Mintzer and husband Paul, and Jennifer Ano; brothers, Michael Ano and wife Sally, and Barry Ano and wife Nancy; parents-in-law, Walter and Anne Trombley; brothers-in-law, Mike Trombley and wife Kim, and Ricky Trombley; sister-in-law, Lisa Nephew and husband Tony; and many nieces and nephews.

We are certain he was welcomed home with the open and loving arms of his mother, Vada; son, Corey; nephew, Jeremy; and sister-in-law, Patty.
