My heart breaks for Alicia and the entire Goffstein family!
Bobby was my neighbor & a great friend for three years. We frequented Golden Knights games and spent many nights and weekends hanging out enjoying each other's company. What an amazing human being he was. Always the life of the party, happy go lucky, with the most positive attitude all the time. Making everyone else feel like they were a part of the family whether they were or not. You will be missed, my brother. RIP!

Bobby and I were in high school and college together. I (the introvert) would quietly tell him a joke in high school classes and he (the extrovert) would blurt it out for all to hear. I stopped doing that in our college classes together. He was a character, and a lot of fun. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss and wish the family all the best................Bill Krems (Denver, CO)

I only met Bobby and Alicia one time. It was at some reunion on a boat in St Louis. What a dynamic couple. So much fun, and I knew had they still lived here in St Louis I could be friends with them. My heartfelt condolences to Alicia and family.

May Bobby’s memory be a blessing to all who knew him and may he Rest In Peace.

Dear Uncle Bobby: I will miss the random phone call that began by me answering "hey dude" and your response was "hey love, hey sexy". One thing I could always count on was a fun loving conversation whereby we would always laugh & talk trash but you never ended a call without sincerely asking me how I was? How is work? Are you diversifying your money enough...be careful about this & that? And then always ended by asking me how often I make love? I hope I can say that here...1) because it's true 2) because it's the Real Bobby & 3) because I know that your boys who love you to the moon & back will love it :-) I know you were proud of me & all of your kids/grandkids. YOU set the tone for how to be a family & spend time with family. I always heard it from Amy about how well you rolled! You always answered the phone (unless you were taking a nap). Preserved family time & weekly family dinners. I could go on and on. You taught me how to dance, laugh (make others laugh), live life & be serious when needed. I take note of how you "did it my/your way". Your memory is a blessing Bobby! Love you and will miss you a lot!

Bobby was dynamo, loved by everyone, sharp as a tack, loved, life, loved his family, loved his friends. No matter how many years Bobby would have been with us would not have been enough. He leaves 3 wonderful sons, daughter-in-laws, grandchildren, family and friends. We were friends for 25 years, and every time we got together it was a great time indeed. He traveled the world, had a ton of stories, always hilarious, and when the evening was over, always walked away wanting more. Bobby left us way too soon, but he made an indelible mark on everyone who was fortunate enough to know him, and I'm sure he'll be looking over his family while keeping God laughing! We love you Bobby, and we'll carry all the great memories we shared in our hearts so your spirit is always here with us!

We go back to High School; then Mizzou; then getting together in StL as well as LV. Many wild/fun/crazy memories.
He was a 'one of a kind' for sure.

What a rewarded life. He was unique.
He achieved so much joy and passed it on to others.
We were so glad to share the wonderful times together.
When you think of Bobby, a smile comes to your face.
