Memories Timeline


  1. amanda, patty, and noelene, my thoughts and soothing wishes are with you at this most difficult time….xo..catherine

  2. As I have been reflecting on the wonderful memories I have of my cousin Robbie, I am reminded . . . To everything There is a season And a time for every purpose, under heaven . . . a time to laugh, a time to weep. May we all grow a little closer, love more deeply, enjoy each other a little more in his honor, and cherish every day. Robbie will definately be missed, I am grateful for all of the memories especially those that are most recent. I will deeply miss the weekly e-mails that used to brighten my day.

  3. As I read through all these beautiful memorials to Bobby, I realise I’m not the only one who feels a light has been dimmed. I saw him sporadically from time to time during the last 30 years (always at drumcorp shows) And it was like time had stood still. He was the same loving, jovial guy from the Classics. You will be missed Deb Modzelewski Ct Classics Drumline

  4. Bob is a cherished freind of mine and will always be near my heart.He was my marching buddy in the Ct. Alumni and we always made it a point to be next to each other when we played.I will miss him dearly and will always feel him near me when I march again. My prayers are with all of you. May we find peace with our prayers thoughts of Bob.


  6. Bobby brought a new energy to the Connecticut Alumni when he joined the baritone horn line. He always had a smile and a hug for everyone. We will miss you and share some good memories. Thanks Bobby.

  7. Bobby, I’m sorry hear you’ve left us. I hadn’t seen you in 5 or 6 years since we played softball for Jeneric but when I did you were all smiles. Remember when you bought that new first basemans glove? I asked you 20 times that night if you’d broken it in, and you kept saying don’t worry, don’t worry…. well, I threw you 3 chest high strikes from 3rd base that night and each one popped right out of that glove. I wanted to run that glove over with a steam roller. I don’t know what you did to that glove, but you didn’t drop another one the rest of the season. Rest in peace buddy. J.P.

  8. Bob’s picture says it all. That big smile and the cheerful greeting he had for all were his trademark and a morale booster for everyone he marched with in so many parades and shows. We will miss him.

  9. Dear Donna, Although I knew Bob and you only a short time, you both made me feel like we knew each other for ever. I remember how excited he got when I won the camper. I’ll miss him. Please come and visit the Pride when you can.

  20. I am in shock. Bob was so full of life. I just got a great birthay card from him. I have known hin since Ct Classic days, and always looked forward to meeting up with him when I was up North for shows. And always sending some crazy email for a laugh or a thought. He was always with that big laugh and bear hug. And when you got one, it always meant something. I’ll miss you big guy. I know you will continue to Walk Proud ! My condolences to his family and all his friends.

  21. I am so sorry for your loss. When I think of Robbie I think of him always smiling. He had his share of tradjedy in his life and I am sorry, also for that. .I give you this one thought to keep I am with you still I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle Autumn rain. When you awaken In the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars That shine at night. Do not think of me as gone. I am with you still In each new dawn ….Native American Poem

  22. I was so saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. Thru our membership with The Park City Pride Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps I was fortunate to have met .Flintstone. and am proud to call him my friend. I was touched by his love and passion of .drum corps., something we all connected with it share. You will not be forgotten. Rest in peace.

  33. My condolences to all of Robbies family and friends. I’m so sorry. My special memory is the day about a year ago when he approached me on my street corner where I’m a crossing guard. He said we were somehow related. Unfortunately I didn’t have a clue who he was until he told me. Then of course I recognized him. I’m so glad we were able to share that short time together. And yes, we were related thru marriage. Bessie Locke, former wife of Ray Locke

  34. My condolences to Donna and the Cameron family. I will always remember Bob as the fun loving guy we all enjoyed to hang out with in the old Classic days. God Bless You Bobby!

  35. My dear friend Bobby, I will miss him so very much. He was my first love and we were together in the CT Classics. He had my heart and to this day still has that special place in my heart. We stayed close friends for 31 years and had a very special bond even though our lives went in different directions. I loved him then and will always love him til the day I pass on. He was an awesome guy!!!!

  36. My prayers and thoughts go out to Bob’s entire family. I grew up with .Robby. back 40 years ago on Sunset Road in East Haven. We were often over each others house running through the sprinkler on hot summer days. I also remember his parents always taking me out for ice cream with Robby. I will always remember him as being a happy kid who was friendly with everyone in the neighborhood and always had a smile on his face. I’m glad I the chance to know him.

  50. To all of Bobby’s Family and Friends, I had virtually not seen anyone from my Classics days in the last 30 years. A little over a month ago, I attended Steve Fenton’s 50th birthday with a table full of old drum corps friends. Suffice to say, the memories came flooding back. I thought of Bobby on that day and my memory was of a kind and friendly kid who never had a cross word for anyone. Always happy and aways giving 100% in competition or practice. As I now re-connect with some old friends, I’m saddened I won’t have the opportunity to see Bobby again. I may not have seen Bobby in 30 years, but I sorely miss him right now. Chris Barstein Connecticut Classics 1975-1978
