Bob was raised in Somerville and Wellesley.
He proudly served as a Staff Sergeant and Radio Operator and Gunner in the Army Air Corps during WWII. Following a bombing mission over Munich Germany, his B-17 plane was shot down over occupied France and his crew were surrounded by German Patrol. They were later rescued by French liberators and eventually made his way back to his base in England.
Following his honorable discharge from the service, he studied Accounting at the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance. He worked for State Street Bank and Trust for 43 years making commercial loans to small businesses. He was very proud of making a loan to build the very first Boston harbor cruise ship, The Provincetown.
