Bob and Fay enjoyed traveling whether it was to see friends and family around the country or to see the annual Fourth of July Pops concert on the esplanade in Boston.
Bob will forever be remembered for being a gentle man and a gentle soul. Bob always had a kind word and a smile for everyone he came in contact with. His caring nature was spread throughout his family and will we greatly missed by all.
