Bob was an avid car enthusiast and loved to get under the hood and work on his cars. In his free time, Bob could always be found with a tool in his hand, either around the house, or in the garage fixing, tinkering, or working on whatever needed to be repaired. As a lifelong learner, if he didn’t know how, Bob taught himself (Yes, without YouTube). Bob loved animals and all his pets, especially his dog, Charlie, whom he loved walking around the neighborhood. Bob was a doting grandfather and loved spoiling his grandchildren with goodies at every opportunity. Bob was also a sports fan and loved basketball (NY Knicks) and baseball (NY Yankees). Bob volunteered with Habitat for Humanity assisting with the building of several homes and was a member of the Ansonia Republican Town Committee.
