I have so many fond memories of Bobby. We all got together many times before and after we all had kids ! He always had a grand smile on his face. We did a lot of fishing & going to parties when I came to visit. RIP Bobby. Much love ❤️ pat

I have lots of fond memories of Bobby, We worked together at JoPa for 10years. I know he will be missed by lots of people. Bobby was the type of person that would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. Rest easy Bobby.

On New Year's Day, 1988, I ran out of oil at my house and while the oil company was able to make a delivery, the furnace had to be re-primed and Bobby left his football game to fix it for me!

Rest well Bobby,
