Bob has gone fishing, high in the sky. He is survived by his wife, Irene; 3 daughters, Stacy (Paul) Hease, Michelle (Hussein) Mahmoud, and Cathryn (Jason) Ehrenberg; 8 grandchildren, Bobby (Katie), Molly (Max), Andrew (Ami), Mariam, Noah, Emma, Olivia, and Nate; and great granddaughter, Sofie.
After serving in Vietnam, he dedicated his life as a Chicago police officer for 36 years. His colorful sense of humor and personality is one to remember and cherish forever. Bob loved to entertain an audience with jokes (that we may have heard once or twice) and brag about his family.
“If you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, you’re late.” In typical Bob fashion, he waits on no one but will be there honking the horn when we see him again. Visitation will take place Friday, May 21, 2021 from 3:00 until time of funeral service at 7:00 p.m. at Cumberland Chapels 8300 W. Lawrence Ave. Norridge, Il. Interment will be private. Info .
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Jude’s or Wounded Warrior.

To Bob's Family, especially his loving wife Irene: I'm so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful , funny , good man. Each time I had the pleasure of coming to his home, he always had a joke or funny story to tell us. I will always remember Bob laughing. Irene my friend, please forgive me for not attending the service for Bob. I missed the obituary and didn't know. Sending all my love to you, your children and grandkids. May his memory be a blessing - Pat Scott

My Cousin Bobby was a force. He was loud and funny. He was loyal and loving. He would take the shirt off his back for anyone. And he fiercely loved his family. I have such great memories of him. I will miss him forever and love him for always. I wish I could physically be there with you all. I'll be there in spirit and heart. I love you all so much.
