Robert "Bob" Caracello

have a memory or condolence to add?

Although we have only known Bob for 15 years it feels like we have known each other all our lives. We have shared many laughs and adventures even getting Bob to fly ( his least favorite thing to do) to many exciting destinations including England, California & Canada.
Bob and I were armchair coaches for the Miami Dolphins, analyzing every play, and voicing our opinions loud enough that I’m sure the players could hear us from our seats in the stadium. Although we were not paid for our expertise we continued to support them.
People say time will heal our sadness but that does not seem possible. Bob is a wonderful husband, brother, uncle, friend & person. Our thoughts are with Jevene, family members and friends.
May our memories comfort us all at this sad time.
With love Jeff and Coralin Lewis

Bob. you were my boss and friend for 20 years. You were tough at times but we understood each other. You we supportive to Mary and I when our daughter Amanda was ill. I will never forget all you did for us, and your support. One thing that stands out was when I was a celebrity waiter, for the Leukemia society, and you tipped me $500.00 for a glass of water. May you find peace, and I know Mandy is there talking your ear off.
