No matter how many times I try I can't type my memories without losing my composure. It's still not real to me. So many memories but I have to say I will always think of my first Bruce concert right before my 16th birthday at the opening of the Brendan Byrne Arena - just me and Bob and we had a blast. :) Of course our spontaneous trip to Vegas to see Jackson Browne and the Eagles was something we'd never done and probably never will again! Sometimes those are the best times. Soooo many memories and I guess that's a good thing. I just wish there were going to be more. He'll always be with us no matter what we do and where we go - especially when the little grandkids are around. Now you can truly “let your soulshine.”

Ei a/k/a Sis Love you always

Bobby O and I were friends for 20 years. We had so many good adventures. I remember skiing at Snowmass with Bob singing the "Bonanza" theme while hurling down the mountain. We drove to meet Lee at a meeting in Buffalo from DC and visited Niagara Falls and went to Toronto to the Hockey Hall of Fame. How cool was that! One thing I just remembered was one day we started at Ford's Theater and followed the route that John Wilkes Booth used to escape after shooting Lincoln. I was amazed that he wanted to go and it turned out to be really fun finding our way. I sat on his porches and drank beer in Superior, and both places in Maryland and was so happy that I was able to meet up with him in Delaware this fall. I liked visiting him and eating dinner in restaurants he knew on the water and going to Ocean City. We ate Italian food in Little Italy in New York and Baltimore. Bob was a good friend. He was smart and funny and there for his friends. I know his family meant everything to him. Miss you, Bob.

Although I was not able to be there today for Bob’s Memorial, please know that he and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers, have been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. He will be sorely missed. I will miss him, particularly his wicked sense of humor. May you all find peace in the time ahead. May Bob rest in peace. ♥♥♥

Bob, one of my favorite times in the last few years was our night with the Ironbound Irish when you decided to surprise Bobby ( President of the IIAA at the time) by attending. We spoke about it,I purchased the extra ticket for Tim and we hoped that it remained a secret until the night of the dinner.You pulled it off & it was a great night. Love you brother.always.Rich

There are so many great memories to share about my dear friend Bobby O. I had the joy of having a cubical right next to his at the District Office in Denver- We had a half wall between us so we literally sat about 3 feet from each other. We worked very hard but there is no doubt we had a lot of fun while working together. One of my favorite memories was watching the Rockies and the Mets at Coors Field and a line drive homerun came right to us and as we tried to catch the ball it smacked off of both of us and landed in the lap of someone who didn't even stand up. That's the type of fun we had together and the luck we had while we were having fun. I really missed Bobby O over the years and I can still hear his voice giving advice "All you have to do is ..." was his patent line as he would give sage advice mixed with a lot of humor. We love you and will miss you and most of all we are better in our lives to have known you.

Just saw the notice in today's paper. He was a great friend and co-worker. I worked many years with Bob at the USPS in Colorado. To the entire Olohan family, I am truly sorry for your loss.

Brother Bob,

I'm sorry but when I saw this picture I just couldn't resist one last chance to bust your chops on the golf course . . . & then of course, you would dig out your two sided chipper & put it on the green . . . $%#@#$%!!! (I think you'd appreciate the humor at a time like this . . .)

Thanks for a lifetime of memories too many to list - what I'll remember most is that we had a lot of good times (& more than a few beers) together & in the end, there's nothing wrong with that, is there?

You were a lucky man in so many ways & you will be missed by many but never forgotten.
Brothers forever!!!

Love you,
your baby brother Bill

Dad, It is still unreal to me that you are gone. Every time the boys do something, I want to pick up the phone and call you or text you. I need you here still. I miss you so much already. I feel lost without you. I know you are no longer suffering and that is the only reason I have any peace about losing you. We love you very much and hope you are our guardian angel. Xoxo
