Bob grad­u­ated in 1979 from Mary Im­mac­u­late Academy High School in New Bri­tain, and later from Ka­plan Univer­sity in Fort Laud­erdale, FL, where he earned his Bach­e­lors de­gree in Busi­ness Man­age­ment, and grad­u­ated Suma Cum Laude. Back in his younger days, Bob was a pas­sion­ate soft­ball player and played for nu­mer­ous soft­ball teams in­clud­ing the New Bri­tain Fire Fight­ers. He played in the out­field, and won sev­eral cham­pi­onship games in Port­land, Maine. A tal­ented ath­lete, he was in­vited to play for the In­ter­na­tional Tour­na­ment in Mary­land. In more re­cent years, he was a mem­ber of the Dou­glas Golf and Coun­try Club, where he en­joyed golf­ing in the tour­na­ments. A Knight of Colum­bus, First De­gree mem­ber of Coun­cil No. 15718 in Dou­glas, GA, Bob was ap­pointed “Lec­turer” be­cause of his en­thu­si­as­tic way to make his brother Knights stand up and take no­tice, each walk­ing away ex­hil­a­rated about what they had heard. He reg­u­larly do­nated blood and reached the one gal­lon mark with the Amer­i­can Red Cross. Bob treated the main­te­nance of home in Ge­or­gia and his va­ca­tion home in Florida as one of his hob­bies. He loved spend­ing time at his va­ca­tion home and trav­el­ing with his lov­ing wife Sharon.

Dur­ing Bob’s 10 years as a Dis­tri­bu­tion Man­ager for South­wire Com­pany, in Dou­glas, GA, his team was rec­og­nized in a com­pany wide “Safety In The Work Place” video chal­lenge for be­ing the best, an honor he con­sid­ered among his most pre­cious ca­reer achieve­ments and mem­o­ries. For the last year and 1/ 2 Bob worked for Spec­trum Dis­tri­bu­tion in Dou­glas, GA as a Ship­ping Man­ager, where he had a way of mak­ing his em­ploy­ees per­form to the best of their abil­i­ties. Bob touched many peo­ple through­out his life and will be dearly missed.
