Several nephew’s & nieces, great nephews & nieces. Bob was known as the cool uncle and an uncle to many others.

Bob was loved by many people. He was known for his burn outs with his 69 Chevy pickup. His wife says he was a jack of all trades, he could cook a meal, fix a car, built them a house, fix anything. He enjoyed spending time with his family. He was also proud keeper of our green grass, flowers and cleanest pool. He loved to tend to them while jamming out to his loud music with his Pitbull Lilly by his side.

Bob retired from Galusha & Sons, in 2013. He was a Heavy Equipment Operator. In his last month he wanted to go see his boys, his extended family. They put a BBQ on for him, and then he went to work for a day with his boys. He said, I quote “I’ll never forget those guys”

Bob wanted to remind everyone to always support your local Fire Department. He was very proud of the Hampton Fire Department Boys. Special Thanks to Matt Sears for always being on standby for us.  Donations can be made in Bob’s name to them at PO BOX 34, Hampton, NY 12837
