Bob was born March 25th, 1936 in Yonkers, NY. He graduated from Hunter College in 1958, served in the Army Reserves, and then taught junior high school Art.
In June 1964 Bob met his future wife, Constance, at the Amackassin Tennis Club in Yonkers, and after a year of mixed doubles tennis, Yankee games, and Neil Diamond shows, Bob & Connie were married at Christ the king Church on June 12, 1965. In Dec. 1967 they welcomed their first and only child, Robert J.
Many happy years as a family were spent at the Amackassin tennis courts & pool before moving to Hastings-on-Hudson. Bob continued playing tennis, paddle tennis, watching sports (avid Yankee, Knicks, Giants fan), spending time with family (especially Sam's Restaurant in Dobbs Ferry, NY). He loved watching his son, Bobby, play tennis & football.
In 1982 Bob's job transferred him to Medfield, MA. He had a successful 30-year career in automobile leasing, later was manager of a tennis club for nearly ten years, before joining Helping Hands of America, where he worked until retirement.
Bob & Connie were members of Charles River Tennis Club in Medway for many years, where Bob served as VP and won several Men's and Mixed Doubles Championships. Bob & Connie enjoyed sharing neighborhood walks & participating at various events at the Medfield Senior Center.
