Dear Family, we pray that your hearts and spirits are being comforted by close family and friends and the spirit of God during this rough time. I was fortunate to meet Uncle Bob a couple of times and he was a funny witty man who made my wife and I laugh and brought joy to our time together. Please know we are praying for you all from Texas. Love, The Faletti Family

Uncle Bob...larger than life when I was growing up. I marveled at his skills; woodworking, boat building, home building...those model trains in the basement. Fast Convertibles, sleek racing boats, that big boisterous laugh and fearless...jumping into those murky bay waters at night to carry my Aunt Ede and Mom to shore. First person I can recall thinking of as truly brave. Those summers at the house he built in Cape May are still etched in my memory along with the time it rained frogs...yes frogs. I'll miss that smile Uncle Bob but God Love Ya for a life well lived. My condolences to my dear sweet Aunt Ede who loved him so ("Oh Bob !") and to his devoted sons, my cousins Bobby and David. Aw, just one more time..."Hey you kids, cut out that racket down there"

I’m so sad to hear of Uncle Bob’s passing. I only got the privilege to meet him once but was thoroughly tickled at his sense of humor, and loved hearing his stories of his service. He had a big, warm smile. I’m happy he got to have a long 97 years!

I have so many great memories of my Uncle Bob...As a young girl, he provided me my first time on a boat and seeing him handle a beehive and getting to taste warm honey! He was also a great carpenter and a good family man. My condolences and prayers go out to his loved ones and may he rest in peace after having lived a good life.
