Bobby, quiet in nature, but full of love and admiration for his family. He saw his father as a kind, loving and a constant pillar of strength and guidance for him. He was always there for him and tried to support him cheering him on in everything humanly possible. Bobby appreciated the little thoughts sent his way. Bobby's response to guidance was always "Thank-you". As a youngster, simple things such as tucking him in at night, playing baseball with him, guiding him through his high school/college years did not go unnoticed. He had a great love for his brother and friend who was always at his side caring and sharing in all things. The simple just being together, laughing until he cried, and sharing the simple pleasures in life, brought such joy. What a gift we have been given to have you, Bobby, in our lives.
We see that his grandmother's saying "Life is too short" really is true. No one knows the appointed time when their life will end. We all must be ready to meet our Maker by asking Jesus into our lives today. Bobby is in the loving arms of Almighty God and finally at peace. He has no idea how much he'll be missed but he'll always have a place in our hearts with so much love. We'll always miss you Bobby.
Aunt Mary Ellen

Bob has been my friend since we were in Jr High school together. Bob was generous,kind, loving, loyal and strong. Bob had so much to brag about and never did. He wasn’t flashy and got along with everyone. We all lost such an amazing man. Bob was always there for me no matter what. He always made sure his friends were happy and comfortable. My thoughts and prayers are with Bobs family. There are no words that can describe how special Bob was to all of us.

Bob was one of the fortunate people who had remained close knit with high school friends, who turned into family. I met Bob when I was a freshman in high school, and he was a sophomore. I playfully gave him the nickname “Bobert” and he would chuckle every time I called him that. Through my teenage years and early twenties, I was able to witness love, dedication, support, and laughter through the relationship Bob and his beautiful girlfriend, and my close friend, Ambar, shared. I looked up to them and was in awe of the special bond they shared. Bob can be described as kind and courteous, funny, generous, and appreciative. With football season beginning, he was definitely looking forward to watching the Green Bay Packers and joking with everyone about the NY Giants. Bob inspired others to share in his passion for reading, especially Robert Patterson. Bob was proud of his beautiful condo, and enjoyed hosting. Rather it be playing darts or card games, Bob was happy to play and eager to make memories. Bob cherished his family. I remember him as a protective big brother who was so very proud of Tommy and his achievements in life. As an adult, Bob was thrilled to own a California vineyard with Tommy and their cousin. Bittersweet and front and center in his home, Bob had a tender, loving picture framed of his beloved late mother and him.

Bobert, thank you for the memories. I will miss you. Rest In Peace, my friend.
