Bobby made a big impact on my work life, and my personal life. He was incredibly smart, great with people, a leader, ethical and loving. His friendship made my life better. I miss him tremendously. I hope he is in Heaven enjoying concerts at their version of the Blue Note. We often talked about jazz, among many other things. But most of all, we talked about family, which he valued more than anything else.

All our love to the Bobby and the family.

To the Conti Family,
Sally, Joey and Gianni. I am so sorry over your loss. I am another 21 year veteran of Neuberger who worked with Bobby and can vouch for all the wonderful things people are saying about him. He was a legend in business topped only by his outlook on humanity and care for his fellow workers.
In addition to our relationship at Neuberger, Bobby and I realized we had another bond together. We both attended La Salle Academy in the 70's, I one year his senior. We knew many of the same people from the lower east side and we were constantly reliving stories and updating each other.
During the past 2 years, Bobby and I have been discussing my upcoming retirement and the west coast of Florida. He gave me places to visit such as Tarpon Springs, Treasure Island etc. The last conversation I had with him was that I was probably going to settle down in Sarasota. And that would mean we could get together every so often, family with family or even just 2 old La Salle men going out for dinner or jazz clubs or baseball games or whatever. I was really excited at that prospect. I cannot believe he will not be a part of my life these next few decades.
As bad as I am feeling, my pain is nothing compared to yours. I am deeply sorry for your loss. There is a special place in heaven for Bobby.

Having the good fortune of meeting Robert Conti only once I realized immediately what a good husband and father he was. Sally, my deepest condolences to you and the entire Conti family. May the good Lord watch over you while you go through the emotional pains of his sudden passing.

Dear Conti Family:

We have not yet met in person but I feel I know you. Bobby was so proud of you and spoke about you often and with the greatest affection. I was hoping to be able to be with you to honor his memory and share recollections with you and his many, many friends. Unfortunately that has not been possible. However, Bill Peterson has told me about the plans to formalize a charitable organization to carry on Bobby's wonderful work with young people. I am honored that Bill has suggested that I play a role in that organization, and I hope that this will give me a chance to get to know you better.

In the meantime, please accept my deepest condolences. My sister, a devout Catholic, has assured me that she is remembering Bobby in her prayers.

Bobby Conti was a calm, confident, charismatic and intelligent man who always treated others with kindness and dignity. He was a philanthropist who always went above and beyond to help others. Even though Bobby has passed away, the impact he left on his family and friends will live on forever. He will truly be missed. My condolences go out to Sally, Giancarlo, and Joseph.

Dear Conti Family,

Our hearts are heavy with burden and sadness. The awesome memories Bobby gave his family will provide you strength to honor an outstanding husband, brother, father and future father -in -law. We (Arielle's Uncle and Aunt) have not met the extended family but through Arielle we have met Joe. Bobby's charming personality, dedicated drive, love and unselfishness is evident in his son Joe. Bobby is alive in everybody he has been in contact with. His son Joe will continue to carry his torch in life. Please know that we will continue to pray for you and your family.

Dearest Sally and Family:
I am absolutely heartbroken. Bobby was really one of a kind. And, I emphasize "kind." There is no one I've met who was more passionate and caring than Bobby. His love for people and care for doing the right thing was felt in everything he did and by everyone he touched. He was such a wonderful partner. I first met him when I became the COO at the Staten Island Mental Health Society in 2005 and we continued our partnership when I was named CEO in 2012. He served on the Board of Directors of the Society for many years and at one critical point was the Chair of our Board. I believe his connection to the Society started much earlier -- I think he attended our first Head Start Program in Dongan Hills. His support and enthusiasm for the Society was unwavering. His guidance and mentoring were unprecedented. His passion for people, particularly the under-served, was unyielding -- just think of what he was trying to accomplish for the underprivileged youth of Tampa. He became a close friend and I will miss him. My thoughts are with you all.

Sending all our love and prayers to you sally and family. We saw Robert back in March and he took me to my first jazz club, what a experience he made it for me and my wife, that is a memory I will always have. His passion and enthusiasm for jazz was shining through as we sat and listened to the saxophone play. Thank you for the memories. Lots of the love, from across the pond xx
