I grew up in revere the same time Bob did but we didn't meet until I went to work in North reading 30 yrs ago
We started talking and found out we had a lot of the same memories and stories from revere
He was a great person and we talked alot about his son in the military his beautiful grand kids and his dogs and cars
He helped me on several occasions at my house and at work
I am sure he will be DEEPLY missed by his family
God Bless
Armand Scapicchio and family
