Walsh, Robert "Bob" James SILVER SPRINGS, Fla. It is with deep sorrow, broken hearts and much love that we mourn the peaceful passing of Robert "Bob" James Walsh on November 8, 2021, at the age of 76, in Silver Springs, Fla. Bob will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Harriet "Hattie" Aritha Walsh; his children, Janet (Glenn) Hulsaver, Patricia Amiss, Carol (Joseph) Morris, Carol (Ernest) Johnson and Donna (Ronald) Gardner; his siblings, Donna Jacobie, Donald (Shirley) Walsh and Frieda McCluskey. Bob "Grandpa" "Buna" will be missed and forever in the hearts of his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Beatrice Walsh; his sister, Judith Attinello; and his son, Kirk Crogan. Bob was born on January 6, 1945, in New London, Conn.. He served in the United States Army as a mechanic, in addition to serving overseas in Korea. Bob later moved to Maplewood, N.Y. and pursued his career with L&W Supply (formerly Capital Gypsum) as a district manager. Their second home was at Blue Ridge Falls Campgrounds in North Hudson, N.Y. Bob and Hattie retired to Silver Springs, Fla., where Bob could often be seen giving the neighborhood dogs rides on his golf cart. Bob was truly adored by everyone fortunate enough to know him. His outgoing exuberant charisma put a smile on everyone's face. He had a way of making friends with every step he took and never failed to leave a lasting impression. Bob was always ready to give and faithfully gave a helping hand to friends and strangers alike. Bob had a fondness for all animals, with a soft spot for his cats which he treated like they were his children. He was passionate about his Harley Davidson and traveled to bike rallies with Hattie sporting his 'loud' beard colors. His camera roll is full of the beauty of nature and countless candid photographs of those he loved. Bob loved exploring and learning new things. His legacy will continue on through his family and friends; his memory forever in their hearts. Memorial donations in Bob's name may be made to your local Humane Society.
