Katrina Nacci - 07/27/2012

Bob and Charlene were like my second set of parents for a few years. I will never forget his ability to make someone laugh, or how he was able to comfort me through tough periods in my life. He lived life in such an incredible way, and always had a smile on his face even in the worst circumstances. He was a great father to his sons, a great husband to his wife, and a great friend to anyone who had the pleasure to work or know him, or even share a beer and a stroke of golf in his backyard. He has made a lasting impression on me and I will never forget him.

Ray Horbert - 07/28/2012

So sorry to learn of Bob's pasing. Bob and I grew up in the same neighborhood in the fifties, worked together in the sixties, were avid boaters and remained friends throughout the years. He was always a welcoming friened, and a tireless, driving worker, hence, his success. To all of his family and friends, I share your loss.

Dear Charlene,
My condolences to you and the family. May all of your wonderful memories guide you through this time of mourning.

Ken Greenberg - 03/26/2014

I was shocked to hear of Bob's passing. We grew up together, played basketball in his huge garage on Colonial Av. I hadn't seen Bob for 50 years, until our 50th high school reunion. I recognized him immediately. He hadn't chanced since we last met in high school. He was a great individual. I'm sure he was a blessing to all who came in contact with him. He is now with our Lord and has no pain. God bless all his family.
