This May he was married to Pam Zalazar for 47 years and they created together a loving family consisting of his 3 daughters Kristy (Tommy von Rohr), Amy and Toni (Michael Wolley) and their 4 grandchildren Gianni, Gioia, Max, and Myles.
Bob was a proud graduate of Gary’s Emerson High School where he made life long friendships and celebrated annual reunions with great anticipation every year. Since childhood he was an avid Cubs fan, and some of his fondest memories had a Cubs game as backdrop.
He was a career salesman which he enjoyed throughout his life. Both his customers and colleagues were a constant source of joy and support for Bob.
Before passing Bob spent his final days as he lived, surrounded by family and friends, cracking jokes, watching sports and even charming strangers and making new friends. He was greatly loved and will be terribly missed.
