Bob was proud to own a home in Florida where he spent winters, and summers in Pennsylvania for ten years until moving back to Pennsylvania and settling in Middleburg.
He was a very fun, loving and had an adventurous full life. He enjoyed high school wrestling, attending 22 years of state finals in Hershey. He also enjoyed college football, especially Penn State. His NASCAR favorite driver was Kyle Busch.
We can’t forget his passion for cars. Almost every year a different one, his favorite, convertibles.
He had a special cat, foxy, who followed him everywhere.
Bob will be sadly missed by many. Rest in Peace Bob.
