I remember Bob from playing baseball with him at Hilltop. We also ran around together for a couple years. Have not seen him since. Bob was a happy go lucky type of guy that always had a smile on his face as well as bringing one to yours. He was a great guy.

I knew Bob mostly from football. I got a lot of rides home from BHS with Bob and His dad. Bob and Norm Hood would lift weights with me in my celler sometimes -- they were a lot of fun back then. I was busy with college and work and pinching pennies, while those two had jobs and were buying bowling balls and rifles and having fun in their free time. Bob was proud of his work at Betz and succeeding in college-- all these years I thought he had gone to Drexel and now find out it was St Joes! I remember Bob was proud to tell me how well he did in calculus. I didn't see him much after I left the area, but we did have dinner on the road a couple times in the last  25 years arranged by classmate Dave Jonik. Bob was into soccer with his kids. My regrets to the family and those kids. Nice to see others I knew from Trevose on here -- hope our turn doesn't come too soon or too bad. RIP Bob.
