My memory of Bobby is he was a kind and joyful person. I knw Bobby for over 30 years and and he was a great friend to my mother Christine. Bobby helped arrange my nursing school graduation party at Zinno restaurant and it was a memorable occasion. If it wasn't for Bobby my party wouldn't have been as memorable as it was. We will miss him as he was a kind and good person. I will never forget Bobby.

Bobby and I attended school together, LaSalle Academy. He was a great guy and the last time I saw him we had dinner together along with some other high school friends at Carmine's. He will be missed. Eternal joy grant to you and may you enjoy the presence of Christ and His saints for all eternity. Amen

Bobby, I met you over 30 yrs ago when ARK built your house on Manor La., East Hampton. You were such a a good friend to me and toy family whenever we came to NYC for my Dad's chemo treatments. You were kind and generous and never let us pay for our meals at Zinno. You introduced me to Paddy Brown and the last time we spoke was on 911. I tried to reach out to you on 911, 6 yrs ago when I relocated to Fl. I don't know if you ever got my message. It would have been wonderful to have spoken with you one last time. You, the jogger, the Atlantic Beach swimmer, so full of energy and liver of music, I was shocked to read of your passing. You cooked some amazing meals, you turned me into an Anita Baker fan and I turned you onto Linda Ronstadt singing all the oldies, by Nelson Riddle. You were a good friend and I will never forget you. XO
