Those of us who were so fortunate to know Bob knew that he was such a kind and sweet person! He was very devoted to his work at the U.S. Secret Service, where I got to know him. I remember one time when he was in a real bind and needed a car ride, and I was glad to be able to help him out that day. It wasn't any bother, but his mother called me to thank me, which was most kind. Afterward, Bob would send me emails or keep in contact on Facebook, and I would do the same. This was particularly important after he lost his dear mother. I guess that many of us wanted to let him know that we cared about him very much. His mother was everything to him. It's a comfort to know that they are together again in Heaven. RIP Bob!

Bobby loved his family and his job at the Secret Service. Throughout his life, he loved to travel with him mom. They went all over the world and met all kinds of famous people and he treasured each of those moments. After his mom passed away Bobby started coming out to visit us in Washington. He would often come for his birthday and loved having a party and being the center of it all! He loved eating out, music from the 70's and 80's, comics, going to the movies, being with friends and family and discovering new friends and family. When my family and I visited him and he toured us around DC he got us to the front of the line at many museums when he flashed his Secret Service badge and said he he was law enforcement. Bobby was always honest and told you what he thought. We are going to miss his ability to name that 70's or 80's tune in just a few notes, his amazing memory of all things actors and movies, his knowledge of family history and his sense of humor.
