He believed in helping and giving to others no matter what. Bob adored his children Lisa, Bobby and Son in law Frank and was extremely proud of all of their accomplishments. He not only taught his children but his grandchildren about the great outdoors, how to be resourceful but also how to love unconditionally. He enjoyed watching the younger grandchildren play basketball and baseball, he was so proud to have been able to watch his only grandson hit a home run over the summer and would brag about it to anyone who would listen. He would often speak of all of his grandchildren and the pride he has for each one of them. He would speak of how proud he was of the people they were growing into and of all of their successes. He enjoyed spending time with them in Georgia and New York.
