We met Bob in 1994, when he started dating my wife Lucille's sister Janet and they married in 2000, then Bob became my brother-in-law. We spent many happy times, vacations, parties and celebrations together. Always wearing a smile, jeans and sneakers, listening to classical music and reading Newsday Bob also liked to do crossword puzzles. A friendly guy, well loved by all who knew him, including many of his students, some of whom took him out to celebrate his birthday more than a few times.
Bob was a lifelong fan of the New York Yankees, he even made me a fan. We spent countless hours watching Yankee games on tv and listening to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman do the play by play on the radio. I will miss sharing the Yankee games with him, for sure.
Over the years, we had lots of good times with Bob and Janet, who both died from COVID-19 within three weeks of each other. Now our house is empty and silent, we miss them both, our hearts are broken.
Rest In Peace, you will always be in our hearts, we love you.
Lucille and Bill Marcy
