Dearest Bob..... I am shocked and saddened to hear of this news. Only yesterday it was 1984, and we met at the 23rd St Y near the handball court, you a man of generosity and humor and genuine words. No time for false praise or bs. You were the real deal.
Your laughter, advice, and friendship was extended to my parents and my future children as the years passed.
Thank you for enriching our lives. You are greatly missed.

Jesus wakes each morning and walks through this amazing garden of lovely flowers. He then chooses only the most beautiful to bring with him into the house of the Lord. Bob was one of those such flowers. So lovely....so rare that the Lord our God chose him among many. 
Bob was my first cousin and a man of great integrity and love. I will remember all the wonderful times that my sister and I spent with him in Italy traveling around and "eating" our way through the land of our ancestors.
He had a big booming voice, a hearty laugh and soul made of gold. He would call me and say, "Cath...cousin Bob." When he hung up he would always say, "Make sure to give Kyile (my husband) a BIG KISS from me and PINCH Sofia's (my daughters) cheeks. 
Saying Bob will be missed, is such an understatement. My heart is broken, I will no more hear that voice that only offered me the most caring and solid advice a genuine person like Bob could give.
May he rest in the bosom on our Lord and may he always be at the table of God surrounded by his mother, his father, Uncle Joe, Zio Gino...and the numerous loved relatives that passed before him.  He will definitely enjoy that feast (because he loved to eat) and ensure that everyone eats a CANNOLI at the end. 
Kyile, Sofia and I loved you Bob....until we meet again.

R.I.P. My dear friend. Bob was a very dear friend to my wife and I and we will always remember him for so many things (all good) , great times at old car swap meets, bringing my c-pap machine to me at Hershey (when I forgot it.....a few different years), our trip to Canada to buy Desoto parts, bringing my wife out to Macungie Pa., dinner outings, and many times out to breakfast, and countless other great memories. The way I met Bob its self is a unforgettable memory. This man was a real treasure, gift, friend, and total gentleman. He loved going to old car meets with my friends and I, as if either of my other two friends named Bob came along they were older and that made him "young Bob" . He was so knowledgeable , genuine, wise, calm, and calming. To list a few. I was away the past ten days until today and am very upset by this news. Bob you will be forever in the hearts of many that you and your generosity have touched in many ways. I look forward to the time when we will meet again my friend. You will be so missed. To Bob's family I am so sorry for your loss may pleasant memories carry you through the tough times ahead. Words to make you all smile "yippieeeee" "ciao" . Love you buddy, "speedsafe" . Your friend,
"Jersey Jimmy" "James"

What can I say about Bobby, he was my cousin and my godfather, he was a simple man with simple tastes, but he enjoyed so many things. I can hear his robust laughter, even now, and my regret is that I did not call him more often to see how he was doing, but am so happy that my husband, myself and my sister broke bread with him last September. He loved to eat good food, especially, cheese and would be heard saying, “So gooood” and then laugh. He took his little American cousins to Italy so that they would understand their roots. He spent time explaining things in a calm and thoughtful way. He was a wonderful man and though he never had children of his own, he was a wonderful role model and “father” to many. I will miss his voice, his laughter and being in his company. I know he is in a better place with his mom and his dad. I was blessed to have known you, Bobby!

Bob was family to my family - having lived in his building for the past 9 years, he had become a part of our daily life. My sons have no memory of life without him, and have already said they'll miss hearing him yell "YIPEEEEE!" out his window at them as they ran to and from our home. He was truly a rare find, always checking in on us to make sure all was well. We miss him terribly already and will always remember his kindness and generosity.

... "When he shall die
    take him and cut him into little stars
    and he will make the face of heaven
    so fine that all the world will be in
     Love with night and pay no worship
     to the garish sun "

the kind of person we would all like to be, gentle, wise, caring and with a laugh that came from his heart. Bob was real, no bull, no apologies,none necessary. His fit amongst our circle of friends was immediate and our love and respect for him everlasting.      Untill we meet again Bob
