I am so sorry for your loss. I agree with Tim Harris, Uncle Bobby did have the gift of gab! My father Harold Monahan grew up with Uncle Bobby and my uncle Paul O'Dea, and they enjoyed recounting their adventures at St. Mary's at rambunctious picnics in New Jersey. He will be missed.

What a great man! Uncle Bob loved his wife and family with all his heart and soul. I am privileged to have married his niece and I’m grateful to Bob for walking her down the aisle. He was also a pretty good story teller. We love you and miss you!
