Robert S. LeRose, 56

Robert S. LeRose, 56, of Stamford, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 22 surrounded by his loved ones.

Bob was born in Greenwich, August 13, 1965 to James and Deanna LeRose. He impacted every aspect of his community in ways that will never be forgotten. From the baseball fields at Greenwich High School, to his DJ group Incognito, to Westport and Norwalk and his beloved Bobby Q’s, the University of Richmond, and everywhere in between, Bob left his spark.

He started out his career at Del Monte Foods as a sales associate. From there he worked for Gallo Wines, Poland Spring and Nestle Waters, and then Velocity.

Bob and his wife Kelley then opened Bobby Q’s in 2004 in Westport to chase Bob’s passion for community and authentic Kansas City BBQ. Over the years, the Blues Views and BBQ Festival was established, rooting from Bob’s love for music. The endless projects in between were a reflection of his desire to bring people together and that never changed, even during the toughest years of his life.

He was predeceased by his parents James and Deanna LeRose.

He is survived by his high school sweetheart Kelley; his cherished daughters Alex and Meghan; his loving brothers James and Christopher, as well his loving nieces and nephews.

To celebrate his life, a memorial gathering will be held from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday at Coxe & Graziano Funeral Home, 134 Hamilton Ave. Greenwich (203) 869-5968.
