Bobby passed away peacefully at home with family by his side. He volunteered at many community centers with his parents. Teaching and taking classes. He also worked with his Uncle Mike at Mars Auto for many years. He also worked with his Uncle Frank with his music business. Bobby had the gift of giving. Whether it was helping someone or just listening. He lived life to the fullest, enjoying the simple pleasures of talking, going for walks with family and friends and spending time doing many different crafts (which he got from his crafty parents) with his family. He had a gifted ability to reach people in a deep and powerful way. He became involved with the Milwaukee Makers Space over the last 10 years where he learned to do more and more things, whether is was crafting or working with machines. In his life he enjoyed lots of activities including fishing, hiking, camping, woodworking, building Lego's; also lots of crafts such as tatting, tamari balls, lace making or many other activities and crafts. He did a lot of crafts because he thought they were lost arts that nobody does anymore. He would put up all of his different scary stuff he had every year to celebrate Halloween. As Halloween was his favorite Holiday. He also has his many collections like Star Wars,Gremlins, most anything 80's and earlier, Lego's, video games and systems, etc. His creations embodied the love for cherished keepsakes. Bobby's legacy is a one of love, generosity and compassion. Those who knew him, know he was a man of many gifts, talents, strengths, love and joy. He will be deeply missed but his spirit will live on in all the lives he touched and made a difference. Family & friends will take comfort knowing Bobby will always be with us in our hearts and guiding us like a shooting star from a galaxy far far away.
