My family and I are so disheartened with the loss of Bobby. He was there when he was needed the most. He is not suffering any more and in a better place. We will never forget him and all that he has done for us. Love you Cousin Bobby. Until we meet again. Be strong Lisette because Bobby is with everywhere you go.

I met Bobby 20 plus years ago by way of his wife, Lissette Diano, when we started working at the same location. We instantly connected and our friendship just grew from there. He was loving, caring, kind, funny and just a stand up kinda guy. He would take his shirt off his back for anyone who needed it. In good and bad times he was always there for me and he loved me as he always called me, his second wife. We had great times together and shared many years of laughter and good times. BOBBY, I will miss you immensely and will miss your calls and hearing ur voice. But, I have videos of you so when I miss you I will pull them up. I'm so glad that the last words we said to each other at our last conversation was I love you. Thank you, for always being there for me. You left us way too soon. I Love you, and may you rest in peace. No more pain. We have the pain now. Till we meet again, my godfather, as we called you. 💔
