AKA Bob, worked all his life with many years at Nezlek Construction, 23 years at IBM, and ending his hard work ethic at Advanced Auto for 15 years. Bob was an extraordinary, selfless soul. He would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. Bob loved music, singing and dancing, especially to Elvis and Polka. He had many smooth moves on the dance floor. Bob's delivery of many jokes will keep us laughing for many years to come. He was an amazing, loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Bob's whole life revolved around his family and many people who became like family. Treasured in our hearts you'll stay, until we meet again someday. Now you're free of pain and can dance again.
We are having a celebration of life at the Sons of Italy, 126 Odell Ave, Endicott, NY, Sunday, April 10th at 1pm. Please join us in celebration of Bob.
