Our best memories of Bob are watching him and our Dad laughing with each other and telling their golf stories. Makes us smile to know Mom, Dad and Elsie were waiting as he walked through those pearly gates. So thankful our paths crossed and we were certainly blessed by Bob and Elsie ❣️

Our hearts were so sadden to learn that Mr. Bitoni had passed away. He and his wife, Elsie were dear friends and like a grandparent to our daughter Dawn and son Markus. Mr. Bitoni always showed a lot of love and cared deeply for my family. My husband, Hank worked under Mr. Bitoni at Medical Center Hospital. They were very close considering Mr. Bitoni was his boss. Mr. Bitoni nicknamed Hank, White Tornado. Just to show how much he cared for Hank, Mr. Bitoni named his pets Hank. We had at lot of laugh about this. We were fortunate to buy a house just around the corner from the Bitoni's and, Hank and "Bob" sat and reminisced old times. There was a lot of laughter between the two. My Hank passed away Dec 9, 2015 and I know they are together in Heaven. We are sorry for your loss and pray peace for your family. In Christ, The Spicer's

Made of old rubber! The likes of which we hope comes again. I live 3 doors from Mr. Bitoni he stopped and talked sometimes, I carried him a few winter versions of my Italian online meals.
If your were a Veteran and younger than him you knew he was a great SFC! 30 years his junior it made me feel good that he seemed to think I was Ok! Thanks, Sarge!

I'm so sorry for your loss.
May you be comforted by the support of friends and family and the Bible's promise of a resurrection.

Acts 24:15 says, "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."
