His love for sports took him all over the United States from Keswick Black Cat Boys to Paco Rodriguez the baseball player. His love for San Francisco Giants lead to many a ball field. The family of Bobby would like to thank Dr. Matthew Reilley and his team at the Pantops Cancer Center and the Hospice team at Northridge. He was an awesome person in every aspect of life.
