Bob was a pillar of positivity in Brookfield CT. He and Rebecca made the town a better place. I also enjoyed Bob as a teacher in Greenwich, CT.

Mr. Silvaggi was my Eighth grade History teacher at Eastern Jr High. I´ll never forget how he explained to the class, the incredible significance of the recent death of John Lennon on the world and how he helped me to understand the complicated Iran Hostage Crisis and their release. I loved going to his class every day. He was a truly amazing and dedicated teacher.
