Bob was a long time friend from our teaching days at the Bregy Elementary School in South Philadelphia. Several of us got together regularly as 'the lunch bunch' after we retired. Bob was my source for reliable car buying and maintenance advice and stories. He loved cars, especially the Corvettes that he owned over the years. I will miss my good friend.
Greg and Chris,
It was my pleasure and honor to know your dad. We became fast friends while working at the ACME on Tenth and Reed Streets, and we remained friends for 50+ years. Bob and I shared many a great Chinese meal together. We shared classroom stories and family stories. We also shared many laughs, and, sometimes, tears. Most of all, I will never be able to thank Bob enough for the friendship he provided during a tough time that I faced in the 80s.
I know how much Dad enjoyed the Four Seasons, so I'll end with Frankie Valli's words: "Swearin' to god (Swearin' to God)/So glad he's givin' me you." I will miss my "brother from another mother."
I’m so sorry I will not be able to attend your father’s services. My name is Karen O’Hara and I taught with your father for many years and I’m still at Bregy. He was one of the hardest working man I know, between school and the ACME at 10th St., that I ever now. He also was one of the funniest guys that I ever worked with. He was one of the three musketeers, Joe and MIke and him. I often think of your father when I’m up on the third floor at school. He always threw the best parties And was a hell of a cook.
