Robert "Bob" Joseph Pucillo, born on February 28, 1953, passed away at his home in Ramona, CA, on March 6, 2014. Bob was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, then he and his family moved to Monrovia, CA, where he would grow up and meet and marry his wife of forty years, Anna.
He attended Monrovia High and graduated in 1971. He used his skills learned to work his way from Junior Buyer at Teledyne to Executive Vice President of the Ensenada Zircon Plant. His hard work ethic and desire to learn more never faulted throughout the years. He was always ready to learn something new and that was a trait that he passed on to his children.
Robert and Anna were married on March 2, 1974. They met through a mutual friend in the neighborhood and were high school sweethearts, loving each other more throughout the years and memories. Robert enjoyed the outdoors and loved to camp, hike, run, bike and participate in marathons. He also enjoyed doing yard-work, listening to music, and spending time with his family.
Robert was very involved with youth soccer; working as president for two terms for the Ramona Soccer League where he also coached multiple teams at once. He enjoyed spending time tanning at the Country Club pool, playing volleyball at Ramona Oaks Park, and golfing at the San Vicente Club.
Robert is survived by his wife, Anna; brother, Richard; children, Joshua, Jacob and Jody; as well as his two granddaughters, Mikayla "Gracie" and Eleanora "Ellie". He is also survived by many in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends who love him immensely.
Memorial services were held at the family home on Sunday, March 9, 2014, where we all shared stories and celebrated the man, the myth, the legend that was Robert J. Pucillo.
