Long time friend, Aunt to Tina & family, your Dad was a good caring person, not only to everyone but to animals as well. Met him when I was 14 yrs. He will be greatly missed. Bob was ill for a long time. God has accepted you in Heaven he,ll join his Son Robbie, my husband Jim & many other,s he,s known throughout his life on earth. Take care Bob, enjoy your next life. You are a healthy person again. Your long time sister in law.
I have fond memories of Bob, having worked with him on numerous occasions in the armoured car industry. He was an exceptionally hard worker with a great sense of humour and I can honestly say, 'a true gentleman'. My condolences to Bob's family and to all whose heart he touched.
To Tina & Elizabeth I am so sorry to hear about your Dad.My Son in law knew your Dad so this is why i heard about his passing .I remember many happy times. Barbara Marks
Hi Tina, I am so sorry to hear about your unrecoverable loss. May his soul rest in peace. May God give you and family strength to get out of this difficult timing.
Very sorry to hear about your loss Tina, family, and friends. My thoughts are with you.
So sorry for your loss Tina, family and friends. Sounds like a lovely man. Thinking of you.
My deepest condolences to family and friends. So sorry, Tina and family, for your loss.
My deepest condolences to Bobs family and friends. I worked many shifts with him over the years in Armored services. Apart from his commanding presence, big appetite and hard work ethic, I remember him as a positive, fun, resourceful guy who liked the challenge of an overloaded coin cart (I think he was trying to set a world record). He always got the job done. He spoke his mind, guided many and did so with a good sense of humor. He will be sadly missed. God bless
Such a strong man. So sorry Rosemarie, Tina and family. His love for you was immeasurable , and will be with you always. Sue and Frank DeLeo
Many awesome memories together on armoured car !! Never forget all the laughs and fun times we had !!!
🌹Having walked down the path to Bobby’s place and shared many a conversation with my buddy, I want to take this time to express my sincere and heartfelt feelings, and look forward to seeing you again in the ever so distant future. You will always have a place in my heart. Rest in ever loving peace Bobby. I for one will miss you immensely🌹
Worked with Bob many times over the yrs at Loomis, G4S and Garda. Miss that big burly laugh of his. Condolences to all of the family.
