We will remember Bob in our prayers. Our sympathies to Pat and all of Bob's family. Bob's efforts to bring everyone together at the family reunions will always be remembered.
I am so sorry for the loss of Coach, I remember him well from my St Pete's days. He was a great roll model and an outstanding person. May his spirit remain alive in all of us.

No words cannot express our feelings towards the loss of such a great person, Uncle, father, grand father, Coach, friend, brother etc. We are honoured to know him, and his memory, and were blessed & honoured to be able to see & visit with him before he passed to his eternal place of rest. May God grant you all peace, healing, comfort during this difficult time.

Dearest Pat and family,
I was saddened to hear of Bob's death. You have my deepest sympathies.
May God hold you all in HIS hands as you grieve the loss of a really great man.
Sincere sympathy to the Family of a wonderful man and coach...he made Pacelli proud.He leaves a vast number of some great memories.
Pat and Family May you cherish the memories that BOB has left behind. I love you and your family near and dear to my heart. My sympathies.
I wish peace to Coach Raczak and his family. I am sure I am not alone to be able to state Bob coached multi-generations within a family. Both my sons and their dad. He was also very supportive to those of us who were students as well as cheerleaders, more years ago than I care to recall. I am sorry for your loss.
My wife and I first met Coach Bob in 1983. Both of our sons played for Pacelli, so we had a lot of great memories. In the 30 yrs. we followed Pacelli we never heard anyone say anything bad about him. That in itself is a great tribute. Thanks for the memories Coach. Marlene & Ray Mansavage
