  1. Bob was a great guy, a loving son, husband, father, brother and friend. We have so many wonderful, fun memories of good times when we were all younger. Such great memories. He was always a lot of fun. He had a great sense of humor. We will surely miss him. Our deepest condolences to Annie & Patty and all the “girls” and the rest of his family.

    • Thank you for your kind words. We agree that his sense of humor resulted in a lot of fun!

  2. My deepest sympathy to the family of Bob. I worked with him in the early 70’s at K & M Corp. on Norton St, and have fond memories of him. He always had a smile on his face and a delightful sense of humor. Rest In Peace dear Bob.
