He was a vibrant, sweet and well-loved father of five children and two step-children. To his grandchildren he was known as “silly papap”. He knew, loved, laughed and played with several of his nieces and nephews as they grew up.
Bob was an avid Pittsburgh Steeler, Pirate and Penguin fan as well as hunter and fisherman. He loved nothing more than a chance to sing or dance, especially Irish tunes.
