A wonderful musician, and a wonderful man.
Thank you for your music, Robert. I will be doing my best to try to learn Sleep Away in remembrance of you and my grandfather that passed away when I was a child. Rest in peace and play on in heaven :)
your music made me smile when i was unhappy, thank you for everything, your music will live on forever.
Thank you, Bob Acri, for the memory of timeless music created from your fingertips.
I recognized 'Sleep Away' was on my computer in 2012. And I felt really comfortable and relieved when lisetning to it. Two years later when I typed his name in Google, I knew he passed away last year. Thanks for the great song, and hope god bless you and your family. RIP.
Learned of him late in life, but quickly came to the conclusion one of the very best in the dying art of jzz. Will miss him, but listen to his music.
bob thanks for the song sleep away...takes me away to a place and time!
bob I honestly loved your song sleep away rip bob
Just received a copy of Sleep Away... felt like I was in heaven. As a latecomer to the artistry of this wonderful musician, I am so sad to have not have made Mr Acri's acquaintance before today. God Bless you and your family.
It is very sad to learn of Mr. Acri's passing last year. My 10 year old son discovered his music and we have downloaded most of it because we do enjoy it so much. We have to hear Sleep Away every night. God blessed him with such a gift. I hope he has joined in the the heavenly band for all eternity.
We play Bob's jazz CD in our house all the time. It is our daughter Chase's all time favorite CD and whenever we put music on she begs for it. We are SO sad to hear of Bob's passing, but know that he is one of those special few people in life who leave their gifts behind with us and will live on not only in memories, but in music. All our thoughts, prayers and wishes to all the Acris. With love, Anne Raveret Obsitnik and family Jim, Chase and Caroline
With time indefinite in our hearts a wonderful life of 95 yrs. still seems too short. May the 'God of all comfort" give you peace, as we await His assured time when "death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."
I am so sorry you lost your father. Even though I didn't know him, I enjoyed reading about his fabulous career and contribution to the music industry. My thoughts are with you and your family.
May God Bless and Keep You Bob. Your smiles and your music touched us all. Our heartfelt sympathy is with Mary and the whole Acri Clan. Love Jill and Peter.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of Uncle Bob. and know that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).
Aloha ka ko to the Acri family. I will cherish wonderful memories of our visits and fun times together. Thinking of you.
Helen, Dennis and Alicia Yurong
