Deepest sympathy to Bob's family. Bob was a great friend while we were in Fall River in the '80's. I met Bob in the fire dept. and we became good friends. He was a great soul and kind person. We had some very good times together. Our daughter Lisa also knew Bob and Maxine as she attended day care and would come home telling her stories of her day with Mrs. Hibbitts. Of course Lisa also spent time with me at the fire hall "with the guys" Rest in peace my friend...Dave D.

He was such a gentleman. He would always drive my cousin & I home. He would say something silly just to get you to laugh. When he did I would think of my late brother & my dad as they would do similar things just to get a laugh! He will be missed.
