Brandon Zesch - 01/16/2012

The most beautiful sight that I have ever seen,
Is of a little old man on his Harley machine;
He was sitting in line waiting to pay,
At the entrance of a campground on a hot summer day;

His bike was all dirty and covered with grime,
You could tell he had been riding a very long time;
I told him he could camp anywhere that he liked,
He just stood there for minute and looked at his bike;

He pushed his bike up under a tree,
Sitting for a moment just looking at me;
He looked to me like he was saying goodbye,
I wanted to know the who, where and why;

He pulled out a tarp, bungies and bag,
Then wiped down his bike with a greasy old rag;
He placed his bag real close to his bike,
Laid down and went to sleep for the night;

I saw him downtown early the next day,
He looked so sad, so lonely, so far away;
I walked up to him and asked if he was all right,
He told me he had never seen such a sight;

The women riding so tough on their bikes,
In skimpy little shorts, or pants so tight;
The men looked the same so full of pride,
Standing and protecting their radical rides;

Some 54 years ago, he said, we started a ride,
My brothers, my sisters, my wife and I;
From Michigan lakes to Dakota hills,
On our Harley machines, those wonderful wheels;

We never thought it would come to this,
A sight that I knew, I couldn’t miss;
You see little lady, this is my last time,
I just came to tell a very old friend goodbye;

Young lady I have lived a very, very long life,
I have lost all my friends and even my wife;
I wanna be gone before my kids finish thier rides too,
I have done all the things I have wanted to do;

As I said, I am, just here to say goodbye,
To a very old friend before I die;
Pappy and I are all that are left,
I just cannot keep traveling, every year out west;

I had to tell this wonderful man goodbye,
I did not want him to see the tears in my eyes;
I saw Pappy later on that afternoon,
I had a feeling he would also be leaving soon;

Back at the campground, later that night,
Under the tree was someone else’s bike;
When we got home I heard Pappy died,
I hope my friend got to say his goodbyes;

Sometimes times I see him deep in my dreams,
That little old man on his harley machine

DAMN DEATH WOBBLE BOB!......ill see u soon RIDE OR DIE brotha.

Mario Borsellino - 01/16/2012

Bob, I am glad to have had the opportunity, just a few weeks ago, to tell you how much I loved and appreciated you. It was funny when you asked me if I was being serious. When I told you that I was being serious, you thanked me. You will always have a place in the Virus room and in my heart.

Philip Solomon and family - 01/16/2012

To Doris and the family, my sincerest sympathy to all of you. May he rest in Eternal Peace.

Brian Manchester - 01/16/2012

Bob, throughout the years and all the time we spent together talking and laughing, i never imagined something like this would happen. Watching your children grow into the women they are today i'm certain you couldn't be more proud. You will always hold a special place in my heart and in the hearts of all who knew you. Rest in Peace my friend!!!

James & Rosanne Osmanski - 01/16/2012

Dearest Doris:
Rosanne and I send our most sincere and deepest sympathy to you and your family at this time. I didn't know Bob well, but I know he must have been a good man because you loved him wholeheartedly. The few times I met him he was smiling and very respectful to everyone. It is hard for a parent to lose their precious child, but try to remember the good times. Rosanne and I will remember Bob in our prayers. He will also be remembered at daily Masses at Brothers of Good Shepherd Camillus House facility in Miami. Love, Dr. O

Desiree Roberts & Family - 01/16/2012

I only met you a hand full of times at the house with kryssy, but the stories she has told me will always stick in my heart. any time i was over there, you were nothing but kind and welcoming to me.
"are you hungy"
"are you thirtsy?"
"no, i'm all set, thank you though."
"well then that sucks to be you then!"
you raised two very beautiful, bright, caring young women and they will forever carry on your spirit, personality, and most importantly your sense of humor. Keep an eye on the girls, because no matter how old they get, they will always need their daddy.
Rest in peace <3

Lori Favata - 01/16/2012

Bob was my friend because he was a loving father and son. He will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor and timing. I love you Bob, you will be forever missed in my heart and mind. Namaste my dear friend. Peace to his family at this most difficult time.

Melissa Kent - 01/16/2012

Oh Bob, To start off how DARE you leave without saying goodbye. Rage quiting is not proper etiquette. Bob was a warrior. As all good warriors are, Bob was strong and gentle. He gave his love and care for his family and his concern extended to those outside of his family, most of all to his Paltalk family. He would talk to everybody and everybody would talk to him, even if he didn’t want them to. I have to say I bugged him as much as I could. Him and I fought like brother and sister, but I always knew no matter how much he busted my chops that I could turn to him to vent, cry, laugh or just to share a funny story.

Bob is in heaven now. This is not the time for us to grieve his death, but it’s our time to celebrate his life. Don’t ever forget Bob. He never wanted to see people cry. He wanted to make everyone happy. So at this moment when we are about to lay his body to rest, let’s all think back and remember how Bob touched our lives. How he made us laugh and how good Bob was as a person. This is not the moment for us to shed our tears, but we should all be thankful that we were given the chance to have known a man named Handfulza Manhood!

Roy Wright - 01/16/2012

You were a voice that listened, and one that spoke with feeling. Your presence made others
feel comfortable, and you did it with comical entertaining wit, one of the smartest minds to know. You taught those around you to smell the roses in life, and that people are everything.
Miss ya brotherrr, I'll just keep thinking your still online.
I would also like to express my hearthfelt condolences to his family and wish them strength during this time of loss. Please be well.

Brian Brach - 01/16/2012

Bob, I always knew when you were lurking, I could always hear that damn fish tank in the background on every mic up.. I miss those mic up's.. I miss the music at 1pm knowing it was you.. I miss the 20 questions you would ask all of the newbies to make them feel uncomfortable.. I miss the talks we had and the media we shared.. and most of all.. I miss one of my best friends.. RIP Bob

Cynthia Nelson - 01/16/2012

Aunt Doris, Snibby and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Bob's untimely passing. Hold the memories of him close to your heart and know there is an angel looking down on you every day. Sending love and prayers to you during this difficult time.
Fondly, Cynthia and Family

Andy Stoner - 01/16/2012

I'll miss your humor and your upbeat personality. RIP, you were a good man.

Tim Smeltzer - 01/16/2012

I'm so sad for the family, Bawb was a good man who first and foremost, cared about them above all else. Even though we never were able to physically meet, I still considered you a friend. You were one of the few people on paltalk that could get me worked up and angry, well done sir. I will miss your overlays, your 20 questions, the fishtank, our back and forth snarky comments to each other, and most of all, you. Rest in peace, my friend. You will absolutely be missed.

Kaylee Cheeba - 01/17/2012

I keep thinking about how I have no idea if you parted from this realm on good terms with me or not, but I will find you when I do and we will finish that discussion. I always respected you, and always expected you to be around. You leaving is such a huge loss to us, and my heart goes out to your family. Chill in Peace.

Lehanna Slade - 01/17/2012

'Uncle' Bob... you touched my life in so many ways, i'm thankful i you were apart of my life. You have helped me through the good and bad times, always focusing on my strengths and strong points, this show how kind, loving and warm your personality really was. I shall always have a special place for you in my heat, it's still so hard to believe you're gone! i don't want to believe it. My thoughts and prayers are with you family. Save me a place up there, then we can carry on our plans we made down here but for up there. I'll see you soon Bud. I love you, and mum says 'night me ole china' sleep tight Bob. From me xx

Scary - 01/17/2012

And I can say the answere was YES Bobby. I came back in to send you cookies and then you left. You will forever be remebered and missed dearly. Be at peace friend. Purrrrrr

Joanne - 01/17/2012

Mrs. P; Krys, Jessicca; Tom and entire family,

I was very saddened when I receved the call about Bob's passing. For several years he was my best friend and lover. Unfortunately our lives when in different directions and we parted. Luckily we would still talk on occasion and for that I am grateful. Sometimes we would just call to say that something great was happening with one of our girls or just to say hi. I remember him calling for me to find a exercise part for Jessicca's WII game a few Christmas's ago. Either way I will never forget the good times we had and know that he is at peace right now watching over all of you. Like you said Mrs. P he is joking and getting into trouble with Uncle Dick. May the days ahead get easier for all of you!


Debbie Colletti - 01/17/2012

I am sad that our friendship got cut short. The Lord must have needed another "angel". I will miss seeing you @ the All American. You always had something beautiful & kind to say. Anytime4coffee when we meet again in a better place, my friend. My prayers & blessings to your girls.

Kristine McCarthy - 01/17/2012

I was very saddened to hear of bobs passing.He was a great guy, when i worked at Wickford Printing we always had great conversations. He loved his children dearly, i am very sorry to bobs family for such a terrible loss.

Amanda Peasley - 01/17/2012

If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you back again
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten we pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts Is where you'll always stay♥

*Rest In Peace Uncle Bobby... this is not a goodbye... it"s till we meet again"

David Lema - 01/18/2012

We'll miss seeing you sitting back against the wall at the All American with your Dunkin' Donuts cup. You were a faithful friend to the band for many years. Rest in peace.
