I just found out about Bob’s passing today. I’m so sorry for the family. I grew up with his children, particularly Bill and Greg. Bob spent a good deal of time with me in traffic court through the decades, and even a couple of times with my father. I stayed in touch with him through the years, because my mother lives right up the road and I would end up driving by the house a lot. I would stop in from time to time just to talk and see how he was doing, especially after his beloved wife passed. I would call him on the phone every other month or so just to see how he was doing. I’m really going to miss him.

Knowing Mr. Bob for only the last 3 years of his life, he was the sweetest man who always checked in on me and my newborn twins. He was always speaking fondly of his first love, Ms. Franny; and his second love, Churchie.

Bobbie was a big part of my life growing up. I have so many special memories of him and Frannie. They literally helped to shape my childhood. He was so generous to always share his home and family with me and he was so loving to my mother. He even opened up his condo in Ocean City to me and my husband for our honeymoon. I was lucky to have been blessed to know him. He will be missed.

Condolences and prayers to the entire family. Mr D was special in so many ways. His Italian heritage was a huge part of who he was. It was demonstrated by his willingness to always have his house filled with family and friends. I will always remember the many fun conversations and his sound advice. Mr. D will be in our memories, always.

Who was the coolest dad in all of spring lake!! Hands down it was Mr. Donadio! Every time I see a SILVER PORSCHE 911S , it brings back a 45 year old memory of Mr D. saying to me and his son Bobby , hey boys you want to take a ride. 1xx miles an hour down the Baltimore beltway, he was grinning from ear to ear .Scared the tar out of us, but felt so cool at the same time. We meet many people in our lives that are easily forgotten, but there are those special few that are impossible to forget. Mr D. Thanks for that ride. You were one of a kind. You will be dearly missed.

Bob was an excellent attorney, a great friend, a terrific storyteller, a great father, wonderful husband and quite simply he was a good man..
If half of these things are said about me when I'm gone I feel I will have had a life well lived-- I will miss this proud man. Jay

A comment, not a memory - May your memories of happy times bring smiles to your family in your time of loss.

Bob is dancing with Frances again.

Bob was and will be forever cherished. He was like a father to me. He was my mentor and my trusted confident. I am the attorney that I am today because of the wisdom, knowledge, skills and loving support that he poured into me for over 20 years, asking nothing in return. He was a man with a BIG heart, a warm smile, and charitable spirit. I am truly honored to have known and loved such a beautiful soul. Thank you to Frannie and all the kids for sharing him with me and opening your hearts to me and my children for so many years. I’m so sorry for your loss. I love you all and God Bless you.🙏

My heart is sad for the Donadio family. "Uncle Bob" was a friend to all of us growing up. I'm still trying to master his spaghetti sauce!! He will be truly missed.
