Bob enjoyed spending time with his friends and his dogs. He also took pleasure in reading and studying The Bible. Bob is survived by his Godson, Brian Russo, and by many friends who lovingly cared for him and provided for his dogs during his illness: Art and Laura Garcia, Denise Castro, Brigette Gould, David Castro, Dorothy Scialabba and The Teranishi family.
