He leaves behind many saddened nephews, nieces, great nephews and nieces, great-great nephews and nieces, cousins and two loving Aunts Catherine Brady and Rita McGough. Bob was a wonderful man, big hearted, trusted and humorous with a warm smile and a loud laugh. Bob enjoyed making donuts and cookies for his family. Bob also liked Steven King movies, baseball, football, Flyers hockey, classic rock and Star Trek. He was a railroad train enthusiast. He volunteered his time working for a suicide hot line. Those that knew him from coast to coast spoke highly of him and he of them. He was greatly loved and his smile and sparkling eyes will be sorely missed by all those he leaves behind in grief.
