Aug. 23, 1925 — Sept. 18, 2018

Dr. Robert B. Nachbar was a respected and accomplished oral surgeon, but that was just one facet of his personality.

He loved camping in remote parts of northern Ontario and Maine, where he would fly fish with flies he tied himself. He was a competitive shooter and enjoyed duck hunting. He made wood furniture, duck decoys and what his son Richard Nachbar called "museum quality" model airplanes. He also liked full-size airplanes, getting his pilot's license and taking the family on sightseeing trips in a leased Cessna.

Dr. Nachbar died Sept. 18, 2018, in Beechwood Continuing Care. He was 93 and had lived in the Blocher Homes in Williamsville for more than three years.

Born in Buffalo, he was the oldest child of Norman and Thelma Weber Nachbar. The family moved to Williamsville in the 1930s and eventually had three more children.

Dr. Nachbar was a graduate of Williamsville High School.

He had completed two years of dental school before enlisting in the U.S. Army on July 9, 1945, so he was assigned to the the 30th Infantry Medical Detachment. Serving in Germany, he provided dental care to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and civilians in clinics, his son said.

Dr. Nachbar was discharged on Jan. 19, 1947. An avid photographer, he brought home enough photos to fill multiple albums, and often told stories about his wartime experiences, his son said.

On Sept. 20, 1950, he married Judith Ann Jaeger in Amherst Community Church. They had four children, Robert Jr., Pauline, Richard and Paul.

Dr. Robert B. and Judith Ann Nachbar.

Dr. Nachbar completed his studies as a resident in oral surgery at Buffalo General Hospital and graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Dentistry in the Class of 1951.

He had oral surgery offices on West Northrup Street in Buffalo and later on Kensington Avenue in Snyder. The Nachbar family lived on Lamarck Drive in Snyder for almost 50 years.

Dr. Nachbar was on the staffs of Buffalo General Hospital, Millard Fillmore (Gates Circle) Hospital and Deaconess Hospital.

"He was a referral specialist," said Richard Nachbar. "Other oral surgeons, if it was complicated, sent the work to him. Also, if somebody went over their motorcycle handlebars, it was his job to wire their jaw back together."

Because Dr. Nachbar received emergency calls at home, "We were supposed to answer the phone, 'Dr. Nachbar's residence, Richard speaking,'" said his son. "He had a black bag and was just like any other doctor, making house calls."

Dr. Nachbar was an associate professor of oral surgery at the University of Buffalo School of Dentistry for 15 years in the 1950s and 1960s.

He was a member of the American Dental Society, the American Society of Oral Surgeons and the New York 8th District and Erie County Dental Societies. In 1961, he served as president of the Erie County Dental Society.

Dr. Nachbar was an Eagle Scout, and, as a Boy Scout leader, took Boy Scouts on week-long canoe trips in northern Ontario.

He was a life member of the National Rifle Association, past president of the Buffalo Shooting Club, the Trap and Field Club, Ducks Unlimited and the Decoy Club. Dr. Nachbar was also a member of the Amherst South Rotary Club, and was a Fellow in Rotary's highest honor, the Paul Harris International Foundation.

An enthusiastic sportsman, he enjoyed fly fishing, fly tying and duck hunting. "We ate everything he shot," said Richard Nachbar. "They would have dinner parties and have people over and they'd have fresh duck."

He took his family camping for weeks every summer in remote locations in northern Ontario or central Maine, said Richard Nachbar. Dr. Nachbar had a pilot's license and enjoyed taking the family on sightseeing flights in a leased Cessna over Niagara Falls or Letchworth State Park.

He was a longtime member of Christ United Methodist Church in Snyder.

Toward the end of his career, Dr. Nachbar "was the go-to man for insurance companies" to provide his expert opinion when a dentist was sued, said Richard Nachbar.

He retired in 1996. For at least 10 years after retirement, Dr. Nachbar would deliver prescriptions each day to Snyder Pharmacy customers.

Mrs. Nachbar died in 2008.

Besides his son Richard, Dr. Nachbar is survived by his children, Dr. Robert B. Nachbar Jr. and Pauline B. Harris; two sisters, Audrey L. Kayser and Nancy T. Ricketts; seven grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, in Christ United Methodist Church, 350 Saratoga Road, Snyder.

 Feb. 28, 1928 — Sept. 11, 2018

First he got rid of the magazines and the ice cream. Next to go were the cosmetics.

Martin L. Quinn III, a lifelong pharmacist, understood that his business had to specialize to survive the impact of the large chain pharmacies.

So at the Snyder Pharmacy, which he had owned since the mid-1960s, Mr. Quinn changed the focus of the business to specialize in medical and surgical equipment and education for people coping with mobility limitations, ostomies and other issues.

"He knew that individual stores were no longer going to be able to compete with the chains, so you needed  something different that they weren't doing," said Martha Quinn, his wife of nearly 67 years. "That's when he got into surgical supplies. He knew that was a specialty we could do as a small individual store, and it would be our little niche. And it was."

Mr. Quinn died Sept. 11, 2018, in his Snyder home with care from Hospice Buffalo after a decline of several months. He was 90.

Mr. Quinn and his twin, Ellen, were born Feb. 28, 1928, to Martin L. Quinn Jr. and Katherine Dowdall Quinn, who lived in Snyder. His father was a builder who constructed some of the houses on the older streets in Snyder.

He graduated from St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute in 1946 and the University at Buffalo's School of Pharmacy in 1951. On Nov. 24, 1951, Mr. Martin married Martha A. Wilber in Ss. Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Williamsville; the two met in pharmacy school.

Mr. Quinn enlisted in the U.S. Air National Guard, serving from January 1951 to January 1953, then joined the U.S. Air Force.

He spent more than a year as the noncommissioned officer in charge of the pharmacy in the Air Force Hospital in Tachikawa, Japan, sending home photos of Japanese shrines and Mount Fuji to his wife. "He liked photography; he took a lot of pictures in Japan, and Fuji was one of his favorite subjects," she said.

Mrs. Quinn had their first child, Martin L. IV, in 1955. They later became the parents of a daughter, Ellen.

Mr. Quinn had worked at the soda fountain of the Snyder Pharmacy as a student when it was located on the south side of Main Street near Harlem. "It was one of his first jobs," said his wife.

After his final military assignment at Combined Services Station in Brooklyn, Mr. Quinn was discharged in February 1957. He worked briefly at a pharmacy in Lancaster and at a Van Slyke Pharmacy in Buffalo before returning to work at the Snyder Pharmacy.

"He always wanted to be back in this neighborhood," said Mrs. Quinn, who worked part-time in the business through the years. Mr. Quinn purchased the pharmacy in the mid-1960s.

With increasing pressure from the large chain pharmacies, Mr. Quinn revamped his business to eliminate the general merchandise and offer supplies for people recovering from injuries, ailments and surgery.

"He was happy to work with people who needed help and didn't have anywhere else to go," said Mrs. Quinn. "It wasn't as popular then as it is now, and he got into it very early."

As part of his specialized focus, Mr. Quinn joined the Niagara Frontier Ostomy Association in 1973 and its advisory board in 1980. He organized the Northeast Regional Conference of the group and helped patients with new products and procedures, as well as insurance problems.

About seven years ago, Mr. Quinn sold the Snyder Pharmacy to his son, Martin L. Quinn IV, also a pharmacist, who now operates it.

In his younger days, Mr. Quinn was active in the Boy Scouts of America.

He joined the Rotary Club of Amherst South in 1968 and served as president, treasurer and chair of several committees and fundraising programs. He received two Paul Harris Fellowships in recognition of his work.

An active member of Christ the King Church in Snyder, Mr. Quinn served on the Parish Council and was a member of the Building and Grounds Committee during the extensive renovation of the buildings in preparation for the parish's 75th anniversary.

In 1993, Mr. Quinn received the first annual Orville C. Baxter Memorial Professional Practice Award from the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The award recognizes an outstanding alumni pharmacist who demonstrates "high ideals of professionalism" and "genuine concern for patients."

For 10 years, Mr. Baxter taught a three-credit course on Pharmacy Adjuncts at UB, where he served on several department committees.

He was active in the Pharmacy Association of Western New York, serving as chairman of the board for eight years, president and as head of several committees. He belonged to the Pharmaceutical Society of the State of New York, and was a members of its Ethics and Professional Education Committees.

He was a voting member of the Health Care Professionals of Western New York starting in 1985.

Besides his wife and son, Mr. Quinn is survived by six grandchildren, a son-in-law and a brother-in-law.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9:30 a.m. Monday in Christ the King Church, 30 Lamarck Dr., Snyder. Memorials may be made to Hospice Buffalo.
