It is with the deepest of heart and sympathy that goes out to everyone that was lucky enough to be a part of Bob's life. There are no words that ease the pain and sadness. The grief, shock, numbness to help ourselves believe Bob has left us. It's like a punch to the gut. Our hearts ache with sadness and with love for a dear, dear friend. A true original, a man of Pride, belief and one to never give up. He taught his boys the value of Family, Love and although he could screech at a moments notice, we loved Bob just the same. A deep soul, a thinker, a planner, a builder, a dreamer, a huge, huge heart. All one had to do is take the time, and take the time we did, so many days and nights for years to sit back and hear the stories, how the day was, the exciting thing that happened or how Bob saved the day. Bob the animated man, the hands telling the stories as his eyes lit with passion. Thank You Bob for all the times and all the moments we were lucky enough to share with you. It was wonderful to see our kids grow up together even with the ups and downs, never did we stray away from standing up and protecting our children. Your Love Was And Remains Gigantic, Immense, To Be Kept, Remembered Always Like A Treasure. Love and Prayers to The DeSantis Family, extended Family and the many, many friends. Lisa & Deo Caporale

"We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year, running over the same old ground, have we found the same old fears, Wish you were here. Rest now brother.

We lost a great guy. I'll miss stopping by the house and having talks with Mr. D about politics, current events and everything else. He always took time out to chat, especially about his prize VW Van!!!! He'd take time to show me his koi fish, let me feed them and teach me all about them. I loved walking up to the house to hear Pink Floyd blaring and Mr. D would always be jamming out to it. He's watched us grow up, through good times and bad. You'll be missed everyday, Love you Mr. D.

Our deepest condolences to all. Although I had not seen Bobby since we were kids, still have memories of playing in the park with him and Paul. Gone to soon.
