Bob worked for the Environmental Protection Agency for over 20 years. After retirement he created a home improvement company, P's Inc, where he built decks, replaced windows, put on siding, etc. He was active in the Knights of Columbus for many years and is a past Grand Knight. Over the years "P's" ran the snack bar, worked in catering, helped organize pig roasts, and Super Bowl pools and parties. Bob was always generous with his time and his tools.

Bob was a big baseball fan and a life-long Yankees fan. He also rooted for the Washington Senators and more recently the Washington Nationals. He was a Washington (Redskins) fan and he enjoyed participating in many sports pools. Bob was an avid dancer and loved to jitter-bug with his wife and daughters and anyone else he could convince. He had a good sense of humor and sarcastic wit. He loved to be surrounded by family and friends and really enjoyed a good party. He travelled frequently throughout the country with his wife Ellen and various friends and family. His favorite was Aruba and went there many times. At home during retirement he read westerns and put together many, many jigsaw puzzles.
