Great memories, never ending laughs, and numerous stories when Uncle Bob was around, especially when his brothers and sisters were with him, not sure how many of those stories were true, but we enjoyed listening,

Thank you for being a tremendous uncle, an outstanding brother to mom, and living a life of what family should be.

God Bless

Bob will be missed so much. I have shared a lot of good times with him. We would bowl in the winter and golf in the summer and drink a beer or two in-between. Bob always had a saying that would make me laugh and I still have all those memories. One of my favorite people.

Bob was my favorite neighbor! It was always a joy catching him in passing. He always found a way to smile about the day and share a laugh. Whether he was on the next project, heading out with family and friends or just basking in the yard; he carried himself as a loving and caring man.

I admired him for his kindness, resilience and jovial outlook. It was a pleasure growing next door with the Conroys. My condolences to the family. Bob was an amazing human.
