Rob attended Holy Trinity High School where he enjoyed being part of the Theatre Program. He was the most frequent visitor to the Islip Public Library, at least once a day. He enjoyed Sunday afternoons at The Harp and The Hound watching the baseball and football games, rooting for the Yankees and the Jets. He enjoyed reading books on movie celebrities, the making of movies, sports personalities and athletes and musicians. Rob looked forward to the New York Times sections on arts and leisure and the book review. There was always music playing upstairs at 40 Bay First St. and always his voice singing along. Rob loved deeply and his love touched many lives. He will be greatly missed In lieu of flowers donations to St. Mary’s Parish Sacral Ministry would be appreciated. Envelopes will be available at Chapey’s Funeral Home. The Prayer Services will begin at 8pm on the evening Monday January 8th.
