Robert "Bobby" Eugene Costello, 64, passed away Sunday morning, June 10, 2018. Bobby had been battling lung cancer for years, but his fight came to an end while in Hospice ICC in Winchester, VA.

He was a loving and faithful husband of 47 years to Peggy (Boyd) Costello.

He was a devoted father to Richie Johnson, Tucker Johnson, Tony Costello (1972 - 2017), and Bridget Guercio and her husband Michael. He leaves behind three granddaughters; five grandsons; and a brother, Charles "Buster" Costello and his wife Kathy.

Born and raised in Front Royal, Bobby developed a work-ethic second to none. He successfully founded and built Costello Construction, which built homes and condominiums in several prominent neighborhoods all over Virginia, Massachusetts, and Florida.

Per Bobby's wishes, he will be cremated and there will be no service or viewing.
