Bob was a WW II Veteran who trained in the Army Air Forces. He was owner and operator of an automotive business with the Atlantic Ritchfield Company for most of his career, happily serving customers from all walks of life. Despite no formal training, he had remarkable engineering talents, and gave generously to design, build and repair anything for his large circle of family, friends, and neighbors. He enjoyed family gatherings, landscaping his lush yard, playing cards, traveling, and his beloved Bichon Benji, who earned his own apron from Home Depot. He will be forever missed.
