I met Bob through his mother, Evelyn. What an example of a loving son! I appreciated Bob’s of humor. I pray for God’s comforting peace for Nancy, Evelyn and Bob’s family and friends.

Bob was my mentor when I started my career at the Aetna and we established a life long friendship that I will be forever grateful.
Bob was a throw back to the simple pleasures in life and was the most honest man one would ever meet.
