Bob passed away peacefully at his retirement home in Rydal Park, PA at the age of 93. Bob retired from working in the insurance industry in New Jersey. All throughout his life his passion was sailboat racing, and did just that around the Toms River, N.J. and North East area. He also served as Commadore at the Toms River Yacht Club in 1981. He fell in love with sailing as a boy during his early years in Cuba, where he also learned to speak fluent Spanish. His passion for boating also involved iceboating and motor yachting with his wife, Mary in his later years. This year, he celebrated his 93th birthday with family and friends at his retirement home in Rydal Park, PA.
He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Mary; their children; Bonnie (Craig) Ayers, David (Debora) Duff, Ed (Margene) Weiss, Jeanne (Bob) Adshead, John (Ann) Weiss; ten grandchildren as well as seven, soon to be twelve, great grandchildren; his sisters, Jeanne Duff and Patricia (Jim) Furguson. The family is thankful for the dedicated care Rydal Park provided to Bob.
Services and interment are private.
