Bob loved growing up in Santa Clara, Ca. He attended Santa Clara High School where he played basketball and excelled at swimming under Olympic coach George Haines.

He returned to Santa Clara to marry Patricia Ann Cabral in 1959. They were happily married for 54 years.
Bob was dedicated to his family and friends and was an incredibly hard worker until his death.

Bob's care for his family, friends, and animals will be terribly missed.
A celebration of Bob's life for family and friends will be held on Friday, August 22, 11:30am at The History Club of Los Gatos, 123 Los Gatos Blvd. Los Gatos.
