I knew Bob since the third grade Saint Ann's School. He was a gentle guy, he was intelligent very good at math. We formed a band together in 1963 in the sixth grade he played guitar, group was called The Wayward Five, a year before the Beatles came to America. We played songs from the fifties and very early 60s. He had a White Gibson Les Paul 3 pickup custom guitar that his father Frank bought him. We played some grammar school dances and some assorted parties. We remained friends thru high school and afterwards. I will always remember him as a sensitive intelligent talented guy. I am proud to have known him in this life he'll always be in my prayers May God bless you my friend Lo... George

Yes indeed, he did always manage to move forward with dignity. His love for music was real and brought him much pleasure and solace. I have many fond memories of Bobby. He was a true friend and we had many good times together. He will always be in my heart. My deepest condolences to all of his family and loved ones.
