The family would like to thank the amazing people on the 6th Floor at The Jewish Home that took such great care of Bob.

Bob was born in Roxbury MA in 1938. He was the eldest of 4 boys and had 3 younger brothers, Danny, Lenny and Eddie. They were mischievous to say the least and at times, the fact that the house was still standing at the end of the day was something of a miracle.

Bob met and married the first love of his life Rowie, at age 22. They were married for 36 wonderful years and had 3 children and six grandchildren.

After the untimely death of Rowie, Bob met Marcia, the second love of his life, in a bereavement support group. Together, they had a successful second act and Bob was thrilled to acquire another daughter and grandson.

Bob was especially proud that all of his grandchildren make their careers in medicine.

Bob made a successful career of his own in sales. He loved driving the highways and byways of New York State with his left arm resting on the door with the window open. His perpetually tan left arm was a testament to the miles put on his car. Some said that he could sell ice to Eskimos.

Bob had a legendary sense of humor that he maintained though his last days. He joked with family and friends 24/7 and passed his sense of humor to his children and grandchildren. He loved silly and witty T shirts and these, along with a Red Sox hat made up his daily uniform for many years.

Bob had a very full life life filled with love and family. He had a generous spirit and will be missed by all.
