So sorry for your loss Jean. Bobby will be greatly missed by many people. He always made me laugh when he was around. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Bobby's family was on my paper route. He was a friendly and humorous kid; about two years younger than I. For a couple of years, he would accompany me as I finished my paper route. We talked about stuff young boys talk about. I enjoyed his company. Upon finishing my paper route and before parting ways, we would visit the gas station at Pittsburgh Avenue and Palmer Streets. I would buy a cherry soda pop for me and an orange soda pop for him and a pack of salted peanuts for each. He told me that if the peanuts were placed in the soda pop, it tasted even better. He was correct. To this day, I think of Bobby each time I pour my peanuts into soda pop. Some friends remain in one's mind a lifetime. He was one of those friends. God bless him and his loved ones.

Just heard of Bob's passing. So very sorry for your loss Jean. He was quite the guy!

Condolences to Bobbies family,wife Lilly.He will be sadly missed.
