He is survived by siblings; Marianne White, Maureen (James Black) O’Brien, Christopher (Pamela Eitzen) O’Brien and Matthew (Lea) O’Brien, many nieces and nephews, cousins, Aunts & Uncles, all of whom will miss him dearly.
Bob was a retired marketing consultant for The New York Times.
Bob would be the first to say that he lived a good and interesting life – just too short. Before and after his well-earned retirement he loved to travel (to Rome, Ireland, and most recently to Mexico City) A real New Yorker, he loved his life in Brooklyn, NY, all kinds of music including Classical, Opera, Jazz, and his beloved books. He felt that lifelong learning was essential and continued to brush up on his Latin and Greek and learn piano until his final days.
A private Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
