Robert "Gator Bob" Dooley
St Augustine - Robert "Gator Bob" Dooley
A toast to our Dad, the richest man in town. Bob was born August 30, 1927 in Livonia Center, New York, but spent the last 70 years of his life in Florida, mostly St. Augustine. Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years Marjorie Ann Frame Dooley, and his parents Patrick and Gladys Dooley, and sister Betty Wager.
Bob was a veteran of the US Army and WWII, honorably discharged April 28, 1947. Bob graduated from Genesee College and was employed for 35 years as District Sales Manager for Western-Southern Life Insurance, and later for 23 years by Century 21 St. Augustine Properties.
Bob was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 611 where he served as Grand Knight. Bob was also an Honorary Life Member of the Elks Lodge.
Bob is survived by his children Pat (Karen), Tim (Malinda), Jamie Dooley and Joni Dooley Barkley. Bob is also survived by 8 grandchildren, Jennifer, Kelsey, Paige, Lauren, Lindsay, Lexie, Destin and Billy and one great granddaughter, Ella.
For the last 7 years Bob resided with his daughter Joni and was a welcome addition to Lincolnville.
All are welcome to Dad's services on Friday, April 9 at 9am at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. Live Stream here: Dad would encourage any Gator fans to sport their orange & blue at the services and are welcome afterwards at 93 Park Place.

Bob was a wonderful human being. We enjoyed so much being with him at every Bob Dooley Golf Tournament. He always had a great smile and was always surrounded by his loving family.

Rest in Peace Bob. What a beautiful Earthly journey you led for 93+ years. You touched so many lives, I am truly blessed to have known you. All the years volunteering for the golf tournament named for you afforded me the opportunity to see what a inspiration you were to your family, friends, associates and acquaintances. You loved everyone and everyone loved and will continue to love you. Our prayers for Pat, Tim, the entire family and friends who grieve your passing and celebrate your ascension into Heaven to rejoin your beloved wife. Lastly, Go Gators!

God is good!

I like to say that real estate is made up of some folks that are like crabgrass, you would like to spray them with Round up and they would wither away....but Bob was a four leaf clover, if you were lucky enough to work with him, you learned the right way to do business....and even more, he was fun to be around...if he learned which teams you supported, he would ease up next to you and give you the latest update on their success, or failure, especially against his favorite Gators....all in all, truly a class act from start to finish. Go BoB!

Mr. Dooley was so much fun to be around. He was always very generous and always sponsored the annual Bob Dooley Golf Tournament for Stop Children's Cancer. I always looked forward to seeing him every year at the event and sharing more conversations of history and gator athletics. My prayers go out to you Pat, Jamie and the rest of the family. Your family was blessed with a true gentlemen for a father.
