Bob also leaves behind a lifetime of friends who were a great comfort and support through life. He leaves his family and friends too soon but was successful at life by anyone’s standards. He was the type of man anyone could talk to elevating the lives of everyone around him and always with good character, strong morals and a smile on his face. 

Bob was a man of many hats. First and foremost Bob was proudly a policeman, retiring from the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, as Captain.  Following retirement, Bob earned his Bachelor’s in Education before finding his passion as an executive for the Boy Scouts of America. Bob was happiest spending time with his family. He was passionate about being involved in his sons' lives and raising them to be good men he would be proud of. Whether it be scout master of their troop, cheering on the sidelines in baseball, football or lacrosse, teaching them to golf or just being in their company enjoying their hobbies, he was his sons’ greatest champion. He was a man of great strength and moral character. He is forever loved by his family and friends and will be dearly missed.

A conservationist through and through Bob’s goal was to leave his mark on everything he touched for the better. An accomplished athlete between golf, hockey and earning his black belt in multiple martial arts disciplines . Bob had many interests throughout his life including golfing, boating, and classic cars.
