Bob was my mother's cousin (Jean Flaherty Kolosso) and I had the pleasure of meeting him when we traveled to Vegas a few years ago. He and his wife took us out to dinner at one of the casinos and we enjoyed a nice visit. Such a wonderful man. My thoughts are with his family.

So sorry to hear the news about Bob's passing. Just seems like yesterday my children and I visited with Bob and Marilyn on a trip out to Vegas. Such a warm and generous man.

Today is January 10, 2012 and I just found out about the death of my cousin, "Bob" Hunold. Bob was my mother, Marcia Hunold Flahery's nephew. I had the privilege of meeting Bob just a few times. However, he and his wife Marilyn, made a wonderful impression on myself and my family. He was kind, gentle, witty, and a pleasure to be around. My condolences to his family that he loved so much.
