Dear Michelle & Charles,
I was deeply saddened by Bob's death. I will always cherish the graciousness and hospitality he extended to me and all of my boys. He clearly loved his family and made all of us feel welcomed into his family circle. I will miss him very much, but I know I will feel his spirit while at the shore. We will keep his memory within us by sharing the stories with each other and both Landon and Dylan.
Love, Lynne

Dear Michelle and Charles and family,
Your father was a very nice person and the students loved him when he worked at Union County College. I will always remember his kindness and unique disposition. Bob was always smiling especially when both your names came up in a conversation. He will be deeply missed.

Robert was a sweet, loving man and cousin. He loved that house in Lavalette and especially his surfboard. I cannot tell you how many times he attempted to teach my sister and me how to water ski, but it was not to be. Nevertheless, Robert was always willing to give it another try. He really began living when he married your mom and you two were born. His grandchildren were the icing on the cake, no doubt. I am sure your beloved mother came for him, and they are together again.

It was my pleasure to work with Bob in the Counseling Center at UCC. He was a very pleasant co-worker and loved to help the students he dealt with. Some would only see him & wait for an hour if necessary to get to him. RIP Bob.

My deepest condolences to the family of Robert. May you find comfort in the promise God has made that He will "wipe the tears from your eyes...and death will be no more..." This promise is sure to come true.

Michelle & Charles I was deeply saddened to hear of your Dad's passing. He was such a pleasure to work and he was missed when he left. It's so true that he was a devoted family man who deeply loved his family and the beach. I'm sure he enjoyed every moment with his beautiful grandchildren. I also had the pleasure of working with your Mom. I miss her warm and friendly smile but it's comforting to know they are together again. My sincere sympathy, Linda Petrosky - Coldwell Banker
