Bob was a proud member of the Stamford Harbor Commission and served as Deputy Harbor Master with pride. He was a motorcycle enthusiast and an avid boater. Bob was a very social person, you could find him often at the Ponus Yacht Club, where he was a lifetime member. He was a member of the Patriot Guard Riders and enjoyed being a Motorcycle Honor Guard in many rides, his favorite being the Connecticut United Ride. Another of his pleasures was horses, having enjoyed watching them in his backyard outside his office windows. He was the rock of his family, the only time he willingly gave up a sunny day on his boat or bike was to spend time with them. There was no step or half children, his family was just his family. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed. The family will have a private celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your charity of choice, and think of him as you watch the water ebb and flow. To extend a personal message to the family, please visit www.nutmegcremation.com.
