Bob was born in Brooklyn in 1931 to Vincent and Stasia Tobinski. He lived in Queens before settling in Tappan in 1965. He graduated from Haaren HS in Brooklyn in 1948 and attended St. John's University. After serving in the Air Force during the Korean War from 1948 to 1953, Bob worked at NBC for 40 years eventually rising to the position of director of finance. After retirement from NBC, Bob filled his time by working at Blue Hill Golf Course and umpiring ASA softball games. He was active in numerous community services organizations: Korean War Veterans Honor Guard, American Legion Perry Post, Veterans of Foreign Wars, AARP Tax Volunteer Accountant and Election Voting Commissioner.
Most of all Bob was devoted to his family. He was a hard working man but he always put his family first. He spent as much time as possible with his children, serving as coach in the Orangetown soccer, CYO and Tappan Little Leagues and attending school functions. He supported his grandchildren in all of their activities as well. He will be dearly missed by family, friends and all who knew him.
