He would make the annual trip to Florida for a month around Christmas time and would also frequent Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Maine. Robert could also be found going to the local car shows and hanging out with his friends every morning at Sip ‘n Dip.

    It was just a while ago we would all play on West Street in Warren as neighbors, and with years all went our own ways. But what NEVER changed is our memories and bonds of friendship. Bobby, Your at peace now with no more suffering of health issues. Until we all meet again, God Rest Your Soul in Heaven ! Elaine Massa
