Rob & Darlene, my condolences on the loss of your father. Bobby gave me my first real job at Seabreeze as a busboy/dishwasher in the '87-'89 era and he was always a great boss! One the best jobs a kid could ask for working with Bobby, Darlene, Carol, Nick, and all the rest. Heck, we even made a commercial one time and he let me be in it! I remember his thoughtfulness of even giving me work one time when he didn't need kitchen staff, he paid me to sweep the entire parking lot by hand just so I could makes some money that summer. That's the kid of boss and man he was! I saw him within the last six months or so at the Moorings and he remembered me like it was yesterday (despite some 30 years passing), asking how my father was doing and even buying me a beer. Just a great guy and a great boss.

Dear Aunt Mary, Richie and Bobby's children. My name is Barbara (Dabbraccio) Longobardi and I am cousin to Bobby. We shared a lot of wonderful times with Bobby and I will always remember his warm, kind and good sense of humor that just came natural to him. My husband has just had major surgery and is in the hospital, therefore, I will be unable to attend this evening's gathering but I want you to know that I will hold all of you (especially Bobby) in my thoughts and prayers. With much love and sadness, Barbara

Condolences to the Delucca family. I worked with Bobby many years ago at Jimmies in Hamden. He was always good to me allowing me to work only on Saturday night after I got a full-time day job. He was a great guy. Rest in peace Bobby.

It is with great sadness that i write this. Bobby was a wonderful friend who I shared many wonderful memories with. I worked for him and with him many many years. He was so caring and always made me feel like family. He raised 2 amazing children who I love. My sympathies to his mom, his brothers and sister-in-laws and of course Rob and Darlene and their families. I am heartbroken. Hugs to all. May he Rest In Peace. Love Anne and Dave D'Agostino
