"Blessed to have lived a number of years with Uncle Bob. He provided many fond memories from when I was a kid. Always will remember the day trips to Margate, Lakeworth, Bowling, his home lunch breaks from City Hall with Barney & Joe. Thanks for always making us laugh. Will never forget being in church one Sunday & we were searching for a bird that wondered in. We started cracking up when we realized Uncle Bob was on the other side whistling away.
Our deepest condolences to Aunt Karen and all of his family.
Rest in Peace Uncle Bob, you'll be dearly missed.
Love Ed & Pat & Family "

"Uncle Bobby was so much fun. He would come to our house every day for coffee and lots of times for dinner. My Mom loved it when he came over. I loved when he was around. He was always telling jokes and making us laugh. He worked at City Hall and also drove a bus for children with cerebral palsy. He was great with those kids and they loved him. We always knew when Uncle Bobby was around because he would be whistling. He was loved by so many and will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace and be whistling in heaven!!"
"I loved it when Uncle Bobby would come over almost every Saturday morning for coffee when I lived in Barrington. He always, always made me laugh & you always new when he was around because he was always whistling. I remember when he married my Aunt Karen I was 15 & that was the first wedding I was invited too & it was beautiful. "
