Bob was a great little ball player as a boy playing for the Elks Club that was at the end of the street he grew up on, Elk Ave. He continued that talent as an adult playing for many local softball teams in the Pittsburgh area. Upon returning home from the Air Force in 1968, he started his own team with his brother Vic. -DAVIDSONS A.C.- a part of the Pittsburgh North Hills League. Upon moving to Florida in 1992 he met his future wife Kaaren Bell in 1993. They married in 1994. Being a weight lifter and in great shape allowed Bob to continue his softball career into his 60s. His wife lovied the sport and enjoyed watching her husband play, attending every game possible, including many traveling tournaments for the Florida Air National Guard. Bob loved his job for 23 yrs in the maintenance dept. at the Horizon House on Clearwater Beach, where he made many good friends and helped many of the tenants over the years. Bob will sorely be missed by all his relatives, friends, and especially his wife Kaaren and brother Vic. He will also be especially missed by his best friend since 2nd grade, Walter (Red,Irish ) Price and his good friend since his teens, Lou Curinga who started Bob on his weight lifting regimen and was his weight lifting partner for many years.
