I finally broke down last night and can't say it eased the pain of loosing a life long friend that I had in Bobby. I will always cherish the fond memories Bob and I built up over 75 years. When I do things that Bob and I did togeather, weather it be cooking , fishing or doing something for honey do,There will be a void that I could never fill without him. Love you Bob, until we meet again.

I will always have the wonderful memories of Las Vegas, fishing and Florida. My grandchildren also enjoyed your fun loving nature. Florida won't be the same without you, but you will always be in our hearts.

What can we say about our Florida Grandpa? It will not be the same this May when we go and you are not there, Thomas is devestated! You were always so good to us, and so fun to be around.
Thank you for being you and for all the memories, we will miss you terribly!
Love,
Kylie, Thomas, Michael, and Ryan

Uncle Bobby always loved to have fun! He was the life of any party. I loved listening to him play his accordian and was thrilled when he bought Nino his little miniature accordian years ago and will treasure that forever. Although I haven't seen him in years- I can hear his music and see him dancing in my mom's kitchen. I have fond memories of my uncle. He will be missed.

I will cherish my fond memories of sitting on your lap while listening to your outrageous stories as a little boy, chasing you around Manville Police Headquarters with handcuffs, and most of all fishing with you, Dad, and Skip on Raritan Bay, while noshing on sandwiches and homemade Italian wine...and the hot peppers from the garden...!!!

I was always aware of how much you meant to father, and to that end, you always meant the world to me. We may not have seen one another or even spoke to another very often over the last few years, but I thought of you frequently and always bragged to people that you were my Godfather.

From what I am reading here, you were the same type of man in Florida that you were in New Jersey. You brought such complete joy and peace to everyone you encountered. Thank you for always being quick to smile, tell a joke or lift people's spirits everywhere you went. I am sure "Big-D" will be happy to see you once again, as I am sure all of your beloved siblings will be.

Until we next meet, I sincerely hope that you are taking advantage of the perpetually good fishing weather in the afterlife. I will miss you...

With Love,
Your Godson
