Robert F. Pannella, of Randolph, formerly of Quincy, died Aug. 30, 2014. Roberts family was his life, especially his adorable granddaughters. He and his wife enjoyed traveling, but Bobs favorite destinations were Las Vegas and Foxwoods. He was also a spirited Boston sports fan. A Korean War veteran, with the United States Air Force, he credits his service with putting him on the proper path of education and career skills.
