Every month he went to CVS and purchased 225 lollipops to hand out to the kids on Fridays.

He also had dog biscuits for the dogs and is fondly remembered by both students and parents.

Bob loved boating, camping and dancing, and he will be remembered for his funny hats and light-up hats and clothes.

He was born in Greenwich on February 28, 1935 and entered the Army in 1954. After basic training he then went on to Signal School to be a cryptographer and spent time in Germany. Bob was awarded the Wartime Service Medal and Good Conduct Medal. He was also a Lifetime Member of the Byram Veterans Association.
