Bob was an amazing man, husband, father, brother, and friend to all. He helped you

with anything from changing batteries in the remote, to rebuilding a car to get you

moving. He is a man who shows up when most would walk away. He is a teacher, the

best damn mechanic we know, a road-tripping traveler with his wife Marianne and

pack of hounds. There is so much more we could say about this man with a heart of

gold. We love you, we miss you, and Godspeed on your next adventures.

We would like to thank Fox Chase of Philadelphia, a special thanks to his doctors

Rosalia Viterbo, MD, FACS Associate Professor, Department of Surgical Oncology, and

Iberia Romina Sosa, M.D. Ph.D. Associate Professor, Chief, Division of Hematology who

provided Robert exceptional care.
