Bob was born on Aug. 4, 1933 in Boston and was a graduate of Boston Trade High School. He proudly served his country in the US Army during the Korean War. He married his late wife Bernice M. (MacCormack) on Nov. 10, 1956 in Boston.

He was employed as an estimator for RS Means in Kingston, MA as a contributing editor for Means’ Cost Data products.
