Bob was a former member of the North Jersey Builders Association and partner of Greenway Construction Company. He built many homes and condominium complexes throughout Northeast NJ specifically in the Bergen County area. He continued working long after his retirement and his most recent endeavor was managing marinas on Lake Wallenpaupack in Pennsylvania. Bob was most passionate about spending time at his vacation home, affectionately known as “Prime Time” in PA with his family and friends. Known by many as “Sir” or "Captain Bob," he could often be seen cruising around Fairview Lake on his boat surrounded by family and friends, cracking jokes, with music playing and everyone laughing and having a great time. This is how he will be remembered by most and where his legacy will live on forever.
