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.
