Knowing Bob was one of life’s joys. He always had a smile and a good word. He was gentle and kind.
I will think of him and his wood working skills every time I use my trivets!
Thanks for the memories Bob! You will forever be an unforgettable character in my book of life.
My love to Cathy and Mark, Justin and Amanda, Cayla and Cyle and Cooper.
Will be thinking of you all as you take Bob home.

Uncle Bob lived a wonderful life full of friends and family. I have many fond memories of him teaching my brother and I how to whittle branches with a pocket knife in Pittsburgh to watching him woodwork and sort coins with my own children many years later. He is an amazing uncle and great uncle and will be missed but always remembered. Love Ian.

I first met Mario in the early 70,s when I went to work at Lykes Electronics. He was very funny and kind person. Always a smile on his face. He later introduced me to his dad at a Halloween party and his dad offered me a job at his Law firm Herce and Martinez. There I got to know the whole Herce and Martinez families including Robert “Bobby”, Mario’s brother. They were wonderful people. My deepest condolences to Mario’s wife Sandra, Bobby and the whole family.
