Michael, Cheryl,Paul and Joey, I am so sorry about Bobby’s passing. Ive known he was sick, but I didn’t know he was close to passing. I was in shock when I read the posts on FB. I sent him a email last week checking in on him and I thought it was strange he didn’t respond to me, because he always did respond.It was so nice reconnecting with him 12 years ago. I think I was 6 years old when I met your family when you moved to Pembroke. Your mom was the woman who got me into horses and took the time to teach me how to ride. I spent a lot of time at your barn working ,riding, and learning about horses. Bobby and I hung out a lot and went on many many trail rides together. I was with him when he bought his first Paso Fino Taso, and then he got Mari Ann I believe her name was. I remember when he was helping me train my horse, my horse reared up and he pulled Bobby’s shoulder right out of his socket. I was mortified that happened. When Bobby and I reconnected 12 years ago, one of the first things he said to me was, my shoulder has never been right after your horse pulled my shoulder out of my socket. . I remember dodging that mean goose you guys had in your barn that goose sneaking up behind me and biting me in the ass. Lol.. I have a lot of fun and fond memories of Bobby I will always treasure . He was a awesome person, I am so happy I did get to reconnect with him after so many years. He will be sadly missed by all. My deepest sympathies an sincere condolences you your family. Cathi

One of the “3 Musketeers “ , as he called he, Joan and me, has passed on. I am so saddened that he never made it back in the pool, as was his goal. Thinking of you, Joey, and your devotion to Bobby.

Michael, Cheryl and the Yunits Family, We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of Bobby. Bobby was such an intricate part of our memories from our time at The Capeway Manor, his larger than life personality and presence certainly was a main stay for all of us throughout the many years he spent serving and working with us behind the bar. I know my father; Carlo will greet him with open arms as he passes through the gates of heaven. His memory and life will live on in all those who knew and loved him. Again I send my deepest condolences to you and your family through this very difficult time. Rosie and the kids, Todd, Andrea, Poochie and Rosemary Capeway Manor

My deepest sympathy to Michael, and all of Bobby’s beloved family and friends. I enjoyed our occasional chats at the farm, he was so nice to Eliz, and always had a compliment about my way of mothering her. I will remember Bobby’s generosity and kindness, expressed through his wonderful cooking, his big smile, and his easy manner. You are all in my prayers for comfort.

We know Bobby by way of the Paso Fino horses. He was a kind and compassionate man who always was willing to lend a hand to an amateur owner in need. Thank you, Bobby. May you rest in peace.
