Bob loved to laugh, joke around, had a gentle soul and enjoyed his Rock & Roll and friends.
Bobby’s favorite things were going to rock concerts and listening to hard rock/metal music. He was an avid Cub fan and liked collecting rock memorabilia. He used to have Lionel train and tracks that he set up. His family and friends will miss his laugh and his sweet personality the most.
