Dear Jo, Christine, Janine, and Robert. Our hearts are breaking for all of you. We have such wonderful memories of our years in River Vale.

Bob and Jo Krokus, Mel and Bev Clapman...…...Two couples from different backgrounds with different beliefs and yet formed a strong friendship and loving relationship. It happened because our core values were the same. Love of family, honesty, humor, empathy towards people and on a lighter note - the enjoyment of a great Happy Hour! We will miss our sweet friend Bob and await Jo's return to Palm Greens to embrace and welcome her. Love, Mel and Bev

Bob is what you call a TRUE FRIEND. We had many great times fishing on Canandaigua Lake and also on Lake Ida in Delray Beach,FL. Bob was always eager to go out for dinner so he could have his Oysters that he absolutely loved. Bob will be sorely missed by all that came into contact with him. WHAT A GREAT FRIEND AND PERSON THAT WE LOVE DEARLY

I will always remember the times we spent at Paula and Joe’s. We swam, had a cook out, drank, and laughed into the night. My heart is with you Josephine in this trying time. Our love to you and the family. Peace be upon you. Love

Uncle Bob, it’s hard to grasp the fact that you are gone. A wonderful father, loving husband, excellent Uncle and friend; you epitomized what it means to be a good man with your sense of humor, integrity and patience. We have so many wonderful memories of time spent with you that we treasure.
With love,
Suzanne, Bill, Kate and Amy

Dearest Uncle Bob - you were more than an uncle. You were a jokester, poker player, boater, rock star on the tennis court and a man who taught us how to do so many things. You were always sure to have enough life vests for all of us, included us on your many outings, and made us feel respected and loved. You were a second father to us. During your Xerox days we loved having you at our dinner table all those nights. I will always remember you for hysterical jokes (many of which I still recite today - only the clean ones of course). You are still the epitome of patience and kindness. You were a role model for me and my children. Every family gathering, before agreeing to go, Coop asks "Will Uncle Bob be there????" You easily won him over as well, from day one. Even at Traci's wedding this past November, the two of you were off in a corner chatting about anything and everything. We love you and miss you and will carry you in our hearts forever..... Jennifer, Coop, Dahlia, Eve and Colton.

Breaks our heart to have lost our wonderful Uncle Bob. He was an Uncle and a friend. Uncle Bob was a warm, friendly, caring and giving person with a great sense of humor. Due to this horrific pandemic and all the restrictions in place right now, we are so sad to not be able to pay our respects and give comfort and hugs to our dear Aunt Josephine, and cousins, Christine, Janine and Robert and their spouses and children. Please know how much we love you all. You are in our prayers. Uncle Bob forever in our hearts. With love, Jeanette, Tom, Stephen, Erin, Mike, Avery and Olivia.
