"Losing this member of my old HS class brings tears to my eyes, and sadness to my heart. I remember Bob as a true and loyal classmate. My heart goes out to his family and dearest loved ones."
"Dear family, I am so sorry for your loss. I truly hope the words of Ecclesiastes 9:5 and Luke 8:52 can bring peace to your hearts and ease some of your pain at this time. Please be comforted by the promise given at John 5:28,29. My sympathies to all of you."

"Bob was a awesome guy and a true advocate for kids. I remember him clearly during my days on the East Greenwich Little League Board. He was never afraid to speak up if it meant something better for the kids. He was always involved and giving his time. He was a great father to his boys and a wonderful husband to Fran and a good family man. You don't see many men like Bob out there anymore! RIP Bob."
"Bob DeMarzio is an incredible guy! I met Bob while working for George Small's Sheriff campaigns in the 70's and he was just an incredible person. So sorry to hear that he has passed on. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. To know Bob was to love him, to laugh with him, and to be touched by him."
