Bob and Claudia are wonderful friends that come every summer to Ocean City, NJ. Bob was such a great husband to Claudia and friend to many. We have such fond memories of Bob being on the beach that he loved so much! He will be deeply missed in Ocean City!

I’ve known Bob and Ann for some years now from performances at Caffe Trieste. They would faithfully drive in from the East Bay to hear us every week. They are generous, friendly, loving people. Every time I play “Peanuts Polka” I’ll think of Bob.

Bob, John Franco and I were known at the Caffe Trieste, as 'The Three Amigos,' I will always remember all of our times together at The Cafe across the street....for a few beverages, then dinner...with the familia.

We shared so many memorable times.

RIP Amigo.

One of the three amigos.

I’ve know Bob since the early days in San Francisco at Caffe Trieste. It was always such a pleasure to be with Bob and Ann. We will miss him tremendously. His smile was infectious.

Bob and Claudia have been our friends for more than 20 years. We have had some wonderful memories with them. Bob was a very devoted husband and father and often spoke of memories with his family. We shared some very good times with him. He loved going to Ocean City N.J., often bringing us fruits or veggies from his trips back home. He will be missed. Adele and Jim
