Very sorry for your lost. I have many found memories of Bobby both around the fire station and as pal of my dad Mickey. Two that come to mind are they took us to a Boston Patriots game way back in the AFL days and they drove up to watch one of my college lacrosse games my freshman year 1976 :-) . I've attached a nice pic of Bob at my uncle Ray's FD retirement. RIP Bob, Mick will be glad to see ya!

Bobby was a great friend of my father and brother, as well as myself. Will always remember the many trips to the Giants games and the great times at Touisset CC, where he recorded seven holes in one. My thought and prayers go out to his family in this difficult time.
