His wife and family hope you will remember him fondly and think of him often while enjoying a good pizza, a cold beer, some loud, classic rock 'n roll or rooting for one of his favorite sports teams! Go Pistons, Go Red Wings, Go Wolverines!!

Share many memories of Bob and Rick. Especially math class. They,along with, Ron Clark and Steve Fedor gave me such a hard time. I considered him a true friend. My condolences to his family.

Bob was a true friend of many. A gentle giant of a man he was. As he partnered with the Dapperich brothers in the Milano Pizza business, they made the best pizza in Ypsilanti for years. Condolences to his wife and family. Bob will forever be remembered by many. Peace be with you my friend.
