Bob was born in Amityville, New York in 1953 and graduated from Canastota High School in 1971. He traveled to warmer weather to attend The University of Miami and graduated in 1975 with a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. Bob found a love for flying airplanes and obtained his private pilot license flying small planes from South Florida to the Bahamas. He decided to make flying his profession and moved to Atlanta where he gained employment with Delta Airlines. After working as a pilot with Delta for over 26 years, he retired as a Captain on a Boeing 767. Bob not only had a love for flying, but also a love for the water. He was happiest when he was boating or fishing with Nancy and their friends.
The family will have a graveside service in Senoia, GA at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to The Oral Cancer Foundation to help aid in the detection and research for oral cancer.
