Bobby was an avid sports fan who attended as many local games as possible while loudly supporting his team. When not physically able to attend games, he was rooting for his teams at home.

Bobby held different jobs over the years: custodian and ground keeper for Mount Greylock Regional High School, and shipping and receiving clerk at both Steinerfilm and Broode Borthers. In his younger years he was a coach and occasional umpire for Empire Little League.

Bobby graduated from Mount Greylock Regional High School in 1968. He attended North Adams State College with a focus on early childhood education.

Didn't we call him "Harry" ?.... poor guy...well I do without any doubt now believe that he is in the presence of the ultimate "Untier of Knots"... for sure. His life looked simple but on the other side of his laugh and his humor there seemed to be complication and some kind of stymie of the best of his energy. It looks like he made a life though and found updrafts to keep his spirit buoyed. I feel grateful today for every single thing that ever helped him out. I can easily hear his laugh, still. He was the math "go to"...what a great mind. It always seemed limitless in some way. I can't recall a math problem he couldn't solve. And scale!...he had the reach and the endurance of a pro athlete...I always assumed he was headed someday for that. Awesome, massive strength and drive in games with a very, very kind heart.
