    So sorry to hear of Bobby’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I will remember Bobby as kids growing up. My brother Bill and I would travel from Somerville with my father, Dick to visit Richie and Bobby. We often would play baseball in the field on Federal Street where he grew up.
