Bob worked for the Pittsfield City Water Department for 24 years.  After he retired he went to work at Ayerco with his wife to keep busy.  They both retired many years later.  Bob had an impeccable work ethic and passed this on to his family.  His hobby was his family and spending time with them.   He dedicated his entire life to his family and loved every minute of it.  Bob was proud to be a Mason and was a 53 year member with the Pittsfield Masonic Lodge # 790 A.F. & A.M.    He will be remembered as a kindhearted man who always found the positive and never talked ill of anyone.
