Bob loved nature and being outdoors. He was happiest on and in the water- he enjoyed water skiing and boating on Cranberry with his family and lake friends, and spending time every summer on the beaches and ocean at Cape Cod. He also loved going for long rides on his motorcycle and playing volleyball. During the winter he loved snowmobiling and was always happy to join in on a game of ice hockey on the lake.
Bob will be remembered for his sense of humor and silly jokes, his love for his family, especially his new pride and joy, Teagan, and for being the most amazing Dad anyone could ask for. He will be missed and loved forever and always.
Bob's family would like to send a special thank you to all the healthcare teams at UMass Medical Center who worked hard in providing excellent care and support.
At Bob's request no Funeral Services are planned. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
