My Dearest Bob! What a precious hearted person you were! I will always remember how you were so very passionate about your sports and even the local High School football team at Pottsgrove. But most of all, I will always remember your greatest passion was and always will be your Gracie, the love of your life.
Thank you for the joy you were to all of us.
Love always and forever,
Dave & Dee Parris

Robert (Bob, Bobby) Diego was my pop pop (daughter of David Diego). I’ll always cherish the memories we’ve shared like going to concerts at the casino, spending the Fourth of July’s together, dancing and singing, all the water parks we went to and going down the water slides because Tessa wanted you to. I’m saddened but also happy you are no longer sick or in pain, you served a great life and had a beautiful home and family and I hope you know just how loved you truly were. I’ll miss The party shirts and sandals and days of soaking up the sun at the pool. You could eat like no one I’ve ever met in my whole life and you sure did love ice cream. I love you forever pop pop. Rest in paradise. ❤️
