Dad passed yesterday morning at home in his sleep around 7am. Our family thanks you for all of the love and support received. Celebration of life is being planned for spring time at a local lake, Bobby loved to be by the water. Our family will spread his ashes out in the ocean via Westport, another home away from home for Bob.

More Info

Bobby is a charismatic and loving man whom many knew. He is a father, a husband, a grandfather, a brother, and a great friend to many. He loved fishing in the oceans and rivers with those closest to him. He is fondly remembered as Big Water Bob. 

In 2016 Bobby was diagnosed with throat cancer. He went through weeks of relentless radiation, hoping that the aggressive approach would stop the cancer short in its tracks.

Unfortunately the cancer returned and it was very fast growing. In December of 2016 he underwent a surgery to remove a muscle in his neck along with some lymph nodes and quite possibly the removal of his larynx. 

After many thorough biopsies the larynx was found to have no cancer at that time, so he was able to keep his voice. Bobby was always a talker, he spent most of his career selling cars and was very efficient at communication. 

Heartache struck our family again in spring of 2017 and doctors yet again found a mass in his throat. Bobby had a complete laryngectomy and glossectomy performed, along with the removal of half of his thyroid. The first attempt at a tongue graft failed so he had to undergo yet another major surgery during the same week. This graft survived but Bobby endured a very slow and troublesome healing process because of the missing part of his thyroid. 

This last Christmas our family discovered more aggressive masses and unfortunately there are no other viable medical interventions. Bobby has decided to spend the rest of his days comfortable at home resting with his family. 

Bobby decided he would like to have his ashes spread by his family on a boat out in the ocean which was one of his favorite places to be. Any donations will be put toward costs to ensure that his wishes were met.
