Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Tom,

    We are very sorry for your loss. Your dad was a great man and will be sadly missed. He was always a pleasure to have in our office. You take care of yourself.

  2. I only recently met Bob and only had about 3 or 4 conversations with him. He told me about his life and his loves. He spoke of the fire department and his summer home. I was sad to learn he was so ill. He generously gave me a copy of the book that he wrote. I will never forget Bob and his family will be in my prayers.

  3. Our sincere condolences to the family,
    and our thanks for his outstanding service to the people of Rochester as a member of the Rochester Fire Department. He will be sorely missed!
