My condolences to Vivian and the girls. I remember Bob from his exile to Springfield, MA when my husband, Frank Findlay and I used to party with Bob at the "Terrace Club" in Longmeadow, MA. Had no idea until now that he was actually a little older than my husband. Bob was always young at heart. Sorry to hear this news. AnnFindlay Tallgrass Creek
My best friend for 45 years. Many, many memories. I will miss him forever.
Bob Berra was the kind of guy who always had a knack to bring life to a party. And yet, with his business associates he was a strong and capable leader. Bob and my husband, the former William Ast, became good friends as they experienced many Monsanto undertakings and trips together. Bob was highly respected wherever he would go.
My personal memories with Bob and Vivian go back to the days that the four of us spent together at International Personnel Conventions. No matter how busy the day had been, Bob always found a room with a piano. He would start playing and singing and I would join with him by singing along. In a short while we would always end up with a large gathering of conventioneers joining with us and we would sing into the wee hours of the mornings. Bob was just that kind of person. He brought Joy into the lives he touched. I feel that he and Bill are,"UP THERE," together ,...and probably, "Dealing Out the Cards."
I shall miss them greatly. Marilyn K. Ast
Uncle Bob was a special person who was a recognized leader in business but he was also recognized to be an all around great guy by his family. No matter how much time passed by when you spoke with him it was like you just spoke with him yesterday. I have only the absolute fondest memories of growing up with the Berra family. It is a sad day and he will be missed. I send my sincere condolences to Aunt Viv, Kathy and Patty and their families. Much Love, Pammy & Bill Sanders
To the Berra family
I will sadly miss a great golfing buddy and friend. Condolences to all family members and especially Vivian
