  1. Peter Pacholick condolence:

    Cousin Bob,
    We’ve been praying for you for a long time. We will now pray for yours and our family to get through this difficult time. You no longer need our prayers because you are in the presence of our Lord. It was great reconnecting with you over the years too! Thank you for your mitary service and for your service as a firefighter. As I write this I am reminded of the good times visiting you and Rich, Diana, and Judy on the “roof”,and those memories make me smile.
    Love and prayers to all.

    Pete Pacholick and family


  2. Jim McNally condolence:

    So sorry to hear this news. Bob was a great guy. The countless hours he spent on behalf of Local 2 and particularly the Burn Camp was truly remarkable. He never looked for recognition, but his efforts helped so many throughout his career. I will always cherish the special “greeting” routine we would do every time we met! You will be missed. God bless and RIP brother.
