Robert held the honor of being a President of the New Jersey Mortgage Bankers Association. He helped to educate and counsel many individuals who are still in the industry today.
When not working, Robert’s passion was his grandchildren. There was never a game, recital, or event that Robert was not in attendance. Family was his everything.
Robert moved to California in 2018 after living in Roseland NJ for much of his adult life. In his later years he enjoyed going for walks and enjoying the blue skies, warm desert days, and snow-capped mountains of California.
Robert will be remembered by Family and friends as a great Husband, Father, grandfather and friend. He would drop everything to help someone in need. He lived his life to help his family and his country as a proud American his entire life, but mostly, he lived his life for his beautiful wife, Agnes.
