Robert was employed as a Supervisor of the NYS Department of Labor’s Unemployment Insurance Office in Syracuse.
Robert was a devoted parishioner at Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Bob will be remembered as an adoring husband and father - loving nothing more than being surrounded by his family and watching his grandchildren enjoy life while pursuing their passions. He had a strong faith in God, a great sense of humor, and had the ability to develop lifelong friendships. Bob truly loved and appreciated his family, friends, SU victories and Yankees losses.
