Bob and Genie lived a genuine love story. They were blessed to travel the world together. They volunteered at both Falmouth and South Shore Hospitals until a few years ago. Bob coached his children's hockey, baseball and softball teams in Braintree. He also enjoyed watching his children's and grandchildren's special events. He loved singing, especially barbershop singing with the South Shore Men of Harmony, the Cape Cod Surftones, and the St. Anthony and Sacred Heart Church choirs.
