Bob was a graduate of Romeoville High School and proudly served in the US Marines before attending Joliet Junior College. He was an excellent cook and a total foodie. Bob was a devoted family man and took deep pride in his sons. His incredible patience and warm spirit were the perfect ingredients for his caretaking of others, love of animals and constant support for the underdog. He also loved to travel with his dream destinations being anywhere with sandy beaches, warm weather and the ocean. As Bob approached semi-retirement, he found great joy in working for the Westmont Park District, especially time spent at Ty Warner Park.
