My husband Sal, daughter Lisa and myself had the pleasure of knowing Bob the past six years since we move here from the City. We were neighbors.

Bob was a sweet, loving, and caring man. He was very helpful to me when my Husband died in September, 2011. When I would call him for assistance he came. His comment to me was call me anytime you have my number.

I will never forget his kindness and he will be in my prayers always.

My condolences to his Mom, wife Nancy, his children and entire family.

He was a loved cousin who we always enjoyed seeing on our visits home. May God be with you at this time and give you peace in knowing that Bob is in heaven with Him. Love to Amy and Lester and Aunt Audrey and the family.

My deepest sympathy to Lester and the Livermore family. The boys and I enjoyed hunting with you on the hill each year for deer season. I will never forget the times we went coyote hunting, which was the best! All the family dinners and get togethers we''ve had, as well as the many summers doing hay together. We will always love and miss you, Robert. Dana, Veronica, Daniel, and Peter Mutz

Bob was a great man and father, I am shocked. I moved away several years ago so I have lost touch with the entire Livermore family, however, I know that they have a very, very, strong family bond which will pull them through there losses. I know that Bob will be missed by the community, his family and all that people that he touched. I did have the pleasure of getting to know him, playing volleyball and coaching with him and well as getting to know the entire family. I am saddened by his passing and will keep his family in my prayers.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I have been out of touch with my friends in Harpursville over the last few years but, I miss you all. My heart goes out to the entire family. The loss of Tracie and Bob is a loss to many. I remember the first time I met Bob, he was a one man welcoming committee when we moved into the community so many years ago. I really enjoyed working with Bob on the Super Celebration Committee. He will be greatly missed!!
