Bob volunteered at the St. Vincent's Nursing Home in Cedar Grove, NJ from 2002 through 2012; where his wife had been a resident. Bob moved to the Pinehurst Senior Living Community in Honeoye Falls in 2013. While there, Bob made a lot of new friends and became the resident photographer. His daughter, son-in-law and grandson lived nearby and they enjoyed the time together. Over the years, Bob belonged to and was active in several Roman Catholic parishes in New Jersey and Illinois. When he moved up to Honeoye Falls, he attended services at Ionia United Methodist Church with his daughter Virginia. Some of the other things that brought joy to Bob were gardening, reading and being by the ocean. His family will miss him very much.
