Robert began working at Chrysler Motors in October 1973 before retiring in March 2005. For the last 4 years, he worked part-time as a bar back at the Plainridge Park Casino.
Bob enjoyed working, music, collecting records and horror movies, and spending time with his family. He never missed an opportunity to grill outside, tend to his garden or watch a Patriots game on TV. He loved to eat out at local restaurants and support local businesses. It wasn’t uncommon for Bob to show up to work or visiting friends with a box of donuts to share.
He will be truly missed but fondly remembered as the wonderful man that he was.
The family would like to sincerely thank the entire staff of Rhode Island Hospital and Friendly Home Nursing and Rehab Center for their compassion and loving care.
