Always enjoyed talking with Bob at different family gatherings over the years. It seems strange to think of the ‘La Force Family’ without Bob. We know he will be greatly missed by many. May you all find peace in your many memories.
Bob graduated from John Marshall High School in 1960. I always looked forward to seeing him at our class reunions. He will be sadly missed by many in our class.
Bob was a grest friend and competitor, during all my years running and coaching the Red Onions of Spencerport.
I will send a donation in his name to
Sea Breeze Fire Department. I am truly sorry to here of his passing.
I would have paid my respect to you in person, as you did for me, so please accept this as my sincere condolences to you and your family.
Sincerely, Elaine Farrell Parizek

To the entire LaForce family; I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to all of you on the loss of Robert. May you take comfort in remembering all the good times that the family had together. Stay strong and again my sympathies. Tom.
Very sorry to read of Robert’s passing. Last time I saw you young people was when I came to Verita’s visitation. Had hoped to keep in touch a little bit, but that never seems to happen. Don and I are now living in Webster, and would like to hear from any of you. I’ve always talked to Mary and Patti, and enjoyed being in touch. Blessings to all, and I wish peace to you all. With Love, Rose.
We are so shocked to learn of Bob’s passing. We had so many good times together and much laughter. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire LaForce family. So, so sorry.
We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Past Asst Chief Robert LaForce and Past Championship Driver for the Indians in their WNY Championship seasons of 1979 and 1980. Bobs competitiveness and heart will truly be missed by many.
