Bob: fuiste una gran persona en todo sentido. Amable, servicial y en lo personal, un gran amigo mío. Tengo recuerdos lindísimos de mis viajes a California y cuando viniste a Costa Rica. Gran cocinero, fan de Los Angeles Lakers, amante de pasear en Disneyland y de la buena comida. Pasamos navidades juntos, muy alegres. Te ganaste el cariño de mucha gente. Misión cumplida en la Tierra mi amigo, te nos adelantaste un poco a los demás. MUCHAS GRACIAS!. Que descanses en paz.
Bob, disfrutaste la vida al máximo, te aferraste a ella con gran fé en Dios. Estoy seguro que ya estás disfrutando de la vida eterna en la casa del Señor. Te vamos a extrañar mucho.
Bob, it was an honor to know a man after God's own heart who have love for everyone. It was an honor to see you at Mass with your wife and your children. Your faith was truly shown not only by your accomplishments but more by the love that you had for your family and brothers and sisters in Christ. Your parents gave you the foundation of Christ and you continue to build upon it for your own family. May you now rest in peace and the perpetual light shine upon you always. Thank you for shining your faith and love of family
upon me. You will be missed but not forgotten
When we moved to the US almost 30 years ago, Bob and Vilma provided the warmth of family in a foreign land. I will always remember holidays with the cousins and Bob in the kitchen making sure everything was perfect. I am fortunate that I got to see Bob a couple of years ago and was blown away by his stoicism and sweetness. He is in our hearts and prayers.
I met Bob in the records section of the Ramey AFB BX in Puerto Rico in 1968. We went to the cafeteria for coffee and a friendship blossomed from there. Bob used to comment how unusual it was for a guy from West Covina and a guy from Seaford, NY to hit it off as well as we did. Bob used to discuss all his friends from high school and his trips to the beach in his Mustang. He actually convinced me to try Mexican food if I ever got to California when I left Puerto Rico. As it tuned out I was next stationed at March AFB and Bob got assigned there when he left P.R. So basically we spent the entire 4 years in the Air Force together.
It was a marvelous time and I will never forget his laughter and his joy of life. I will miss him tremendously but I know I will see him again when my turn comes to cross over. Rest in Peace buddy!

It has been a blessing to have known Bob and Vilma. We know Bob's mom Betty from our church, where we have sat next to her for many years. We met Bob and Vilma through their great love and devotion to the Divine Mercy. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May Our Lord Jesus continue to hold you and your family in His Hands and may His Divine Mercy give you comfort.

I met Bob in 1961 at Coronado Jr. High. For the next 7 years we were always together. He was my classmate, my teammate, my band mate and my best friend. I love you Bob and I will forever miss you. See you on the other side. Randy Selby
The Palush family is so near and dear to our hearts. Betty and Bob Sr. were great friends to my folks, Bob and Millie Rhein.
Bob Jr. and Vilma have been examples of true Christianity as they shared in the lives of our family.
We are sad to hear of the loss of Bob....Thank God for the hope of heaven and life eternal.
It is with deepest sympathy and love that we extend to you now.

Although our time together was short, our friendship could not have been stronger. Bob was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.
Bob what an amazing man you were and I was so priveleged to have you in my life. Your Love for life, family & God made you the the amazing man that you were I will always hold your memory in my heart. I Love YOU Bob.
My brother Bob, he taught me so much in life. He was always my big brother, protecting me, guiding me, teaching me. We listened to music together, played baseball, went bowling for hours at a time, always competing for the high score, We cruised many nights in West Covina in his Mustang, he was never embarrassed to have his little brother with him. Later in life whether it was a week or several months that went by, we never missed a beat after the first hello, we caught up on movies, TV and food. It was a loving brother's bond that we shared.
Thank you Bob for the being the best Brother. I will always love you and will never forget you and the memories we shared.
Having known Bob since 1973, we lost touch many years ago and with regret I count that as my fault that I did not get to spend more time with him. He was an excellent man and a good friend.
Mr. Palush treated me like a son for the time i was around the family. He loved his family, food and golf. Sunday's after church watching golf with Mr. Palush while he cooked up a great meal will always be times that i cherish. Your family and friends will miss you dearly! God Bless. Mrs. Palush, Jeff, Kristine, Steph and Michelle and all the grandchildren, you guys definitely have a great angel in the heavens now looking down on you.
May the God of all comfort be with Bob's family during this very difficult time. Bob was a wonderful friend during the 60's and we had some great times together "cruisin'" Bobs Big Boy and the West Covina Plaza listening to the Bee Gees First Album. Much love to his family, as he will be surely missed.
