I just found out about Bob's passing. I grew up with Bob in Hillside and went all through school with him. He was always a great guy and fun to be around. My sincerest condolences to the Minervino family. I know Bob and Jerry are hanging out together again. Rest in peace.

He was a great man, I enjoyed his humor and wit very much. My heart goes out to Bob's family, friends and loved ones. I am deeply sorry for your abrupt and untimely loss. I will miss bumping into Bob at random places. Having a few moments to chat, saying see ya next time, it was always good seeing you! He has left me with some very good memories, conversations, and laughs.

We will miss our team mate from the Meatloafers. Jerry went to Hillside High with Bob. As a couple, we've known Bob and Sherry since the early 1970's. We've been through weddings, children and life together. Our hearts our broken and we will miss Bob dearly. Yes, Sherry was his angel during these past months and God Bless Sherry and God Bless Bob.

My condolences to the family. I remember coach for most of my little league carrier. Such an enjoyable time in my life watching him and Keith go back and worth while I tried to pitch. You couldn’t say Lacey Little League without thinking of him. Your love one will definitely be missed and touched a lot of people while on this earth. Rest In Peace Coach

Bob was my coach in Lacey Little League and I played with his son Rob on the Sr. League Pirates about 24 years ago. He was an all around great guy! Nothing but fond memories of Bob. My thoughts and prayers are with Sherry and the family.

Mr. Minervino was my brother’s little league baseball coach before he was mine. I would always get a kick out of whenever Mr. Minervino saw my brother, he would yell him name as loud as he could.....ANTHONY!!! He was a great coach and an even better human being. I loved playing for his team and talking baseball with him. My father and Mr. Minervino grew close over the years of my brother and I playing little league baseball. He will he missed by the entire Puzzo family.

Bob you are gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
We were Bob and Sherry's neighbors for 13 years. One reason we stayed in that house was because we had the best neighbors we ever had. Bob and Sherry treated us like family. We all kid around and had many laughs together.
Bob would call Sherry his Angel and she was. Bob spoke about his sons and their families very highly he was very proud of them.
Bob definitely had a way with all animals. Our Jojo loved his Uncle Bobby.
Wishing you all peace and strength during this difficult time.

People like Bob are very few and far between in this world.
The only thing I can think of saying at a time like this is “Hey Bob, thanks for the laughs”.
I’ll never have laughs like that again. 😞
