Bobby was a truly wonderful person, whose warmth, sincerity, and goodness would just light up a room. I had the good fortune of knowing Bobby for 18 years. We met as “students” at
the Perella Ristorante Academy in Warren, where
we shared many laughs, pints, and friendships
through the years. I have a particularly fond
memory of Bobby from several years ago when Bobby,
myself, and 16 other PRA PhD’s ventured to a game at Fenway Park , and it was an evening none
of us will ever forget. Bobby was in the first row at Fenway, and terrified he was going to be hit
in the nose with a foul ball. We got a glove for Bobby and he sat with the glove in front of his face for the entire game. It was a true classic.
He did put the glove down however when Uncle
Guinness called !
RIP Bobby. You enriched the lives of all who had the good fortune of knowing you. God Bless
Bobby Boscoe !!!

Mr.Bosco was a kind and upbeat person who would change the mood in a room for the better. I met him as a member of the Fall River Elksclub. I later found out he was acquainted with a good friend of mine who worked with him at BCC (Mary Bouchard). Me and my husband Steve would always join him having a Guinness even though I usually drank courvoisier and my husband drank Tanguray. He will be sadly missed!

Bobby was always a gentleman! His first words to me were, "You look like a good Irish girl!!" We were fast friends after that!

Boscoe family, Audrey and I are so sorry for your loss. In my younger years, Bob and I would sit and talk after Colonial Navy Meetings or I would see him at a local watering hole. There were many time I would ask his advice on certain things. He will be truly missed

My condolences to Sandy, and the Boscoe family. I remember sharing many good times with Bob and his children listening to some GREAT Irish music or having dinner and watching a sporting event or two. I always felt he accepted me like one of his children and was always handy with some helpful suggestions. You will be truly missed.

To the family of Mr. Bob, my deepest deepest condolences. My heart has not stopped aching in great sadness, for he was truly a one of a kind gentleman. I was only blessed and honored with knowing him for the last few days of his life but am ever so thankful for each and every one of them for it was always in cheer. The day before his passing the activity was music day, he requested a song that he mentioned was his favorite of all time…Dublin in the Rare Old Times” We now play it daily at afternoon porch time in memory of him. He is missed by many here. We also went out on the porch in the afternoon to get fresh air with the other willing residents and had joke time. I will never forget his smile or laugh. “Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines” I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times”. Rest In Peace Mr. Bob… I’m sure we will meet again

Bob Boscoe can easily be called Mr. BCC. He is a great one.

I can see him now looking for Dean Elias as well as other members of

his BCC family to discuss the issues of the day.
