    Rose, Rob and family,

    Bob was a special person, who inspired others, all of his life. I remember him at Massena Central High School, competing in multiple sports, and always giving his all. I reconnected with Bob in the last few years in his life; and, I was impressed that he was now an author, motivational speaker, and a financial manager. That success doesn’t just happen by itself. It requires a lot of effort and sacrifice.

    The memories that stay in my mind though were when you were just starting out as a family. I remember seeing you, Rose, and Bob, walking near Alcoa Field and pushing Robert, in a baby carriage. You had gone from high school to parents in a short period of time; and, it was taking your love & teamwork to get through that day. That same and even stronger love and teamwork have continued to carry you through the years.

    I am happy for Bob that he suffered for only a short time & that he is now enjoying Heaven. I am very sorry for your loss though; and, I expect that you will have some difficult days ahead. I have no doubt though that the love and foundation that you built over the years will hold you up and carry you forward in your lives.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to family and friends, as the need arises. You are loved and cared about.

    Sincerely,
    Pat Kelly

    Rose, Bob Jr and family: we are so saddened by this news. Be comforted by all the great memories you shared. Nobody could light up a room like Bob. He touched so many lives and had such a positive impact on everyone he came in contact with -and was a true inspiration right up to the end. He will be sorely missed but his memory will live on through you and and all the lives he touched throughout his life and career. RIP my brother.

    God bless your family

    Rose, Robert and the Fiacco family, sending our love and condolences. Bobby was a wonderful man and has left his mark on this world. He led by example and never anything get in his way even his final battle with the dreadful ALS. He made sure people were aware of this disease and we can only hope that his sharing his battle will encourage donations that lead to a cure. Our memories with the Fiacco family since I was a little girl are cherished and you are all friends for life, I wish we could be there in person, but know we are there in spirit. On behalf of the Hazelton Family we wish you strength to move forward. Surely he’s up there running the show. With love Kelly and Ron Gordon.
