Robert studied Computer Network Engineering at Seminole State College and became an entrepreneur, leader, innovator and technologist.

He later would become the CEO and Founder of many companies including Beat Surgeons, Related Noise, Ideation and more. At the time of death, Robert was the Director of Data Management and Analytics at Success Academy.
Robert is survived by his wife Nirvana Beale Dilio, beautiful daughter Zoe, beloved parents Robert and Darlene Dilio of Daytona Beach, beloved sister April Tippee (Sean), grandmother Ada Crawford of Little Egg Harbor NJ, as well as aunts, uncles, and many other relatives and friends who will forever cherish his memory.
Robert and his daughter Zoe were inseparable from the moment she was born in 2011, and he would give her a world of love. They spent the springs and summers visiting Central Park for nature walks and fishing at the Harlem Meer. They both waited in anticipation each week for the release of a new movie, whether it was Star Wars, Hotel Transylvania, etc. They often drew amazing sketches together and even made beats. His eyes lit up every moment he greeted her with a “hey kiddo” to follow. She will always know that he loved her because he never went a moment without saying “I love you,” followed by big hugs and kisses.
Robert was known to be kind, selfless and a loyal man who would light up a room when entered. He was intellectually curious and compassionate to family and friend.
Robert Dilio will forever be in our hearts and will always be remembered as the one who kept both family and friends connected.
