I knew Bob ever since our elementary school days with Bob at #9 and me at #20. That is a long time to know someone for. Long enough to really get to know someone. Bob was a very caring person and a friend to all who knew him. I for one counted Bob as a longtime friend. We all will miss him. CHUCK KINER

Dear Rochelle (Roe) - sorry to hear your sad news. So many memories of you and Bobby -matching shirts, bowling, proms are just a few. Among his earliest philanthropic contributions - Bobby pretty much outfitted Temple Beth David Sisterhood's kitchen in the "new building" on St.. Paul Blvd. His memory will be a blessing to you and your family. Fondly, Rochelle (Shelly)

I will always have fond memories of my Uncle Bobby. He had a great sense of humor and a generous heart. His love for my Aunt "Shell" always showed, and the sound of them laughing together will always be etched into my mind. My wife and I are praying for comfort and healing. God willing, Covid will soon pass, and we can gather again as a family. Blessings & Comfort - Chris & Emily Muto

Dear Rochelle and family I vividly recall when I was about 5 or 6 and nearby neighbors on Joseph Avenue, when Bobby lost his Dad at such a young age. In my career at the Jewish Home, Bob and I would periodically meet up and recall the days of our early childhoods. Bob would always greet me with a hug and kind word as he did for so many. Rochelle and Bob were an amazing couple in every way! My condolences, Arnie Gissin

My deepest sympathies to Rochelle and the entire family . “ “Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.” Bruce Rosenbaum
