Bob loved living next to Lake Erie. He felt the beauty of nature just outside his window was a special gift. Bob enjoyed fishing and boating in the bay area. A special joy of Bob's was riding his four wheeler around the neighborhood. He also had a love for his pets, especially his dog Howard and his cat Home Boy. Bob was very fond of his cousin Donell Kinstler, who was very helpful to him whenever he needed. He had a special relationship with his great-niece and great-nephew Morgan and William Iamuzzella. His happiness was always displayed when they would visit or call. He was especially happy when he could shower them with gifts.
