I had been dating Bob for about three years. I only knew because one of my
friends had seen the obituary and thought it might be him. The obituary is in
the February 11 Boston Globe. I can send you a copy if you can't get it online
anymore. He died January 29th. There was a service in Dorchester but I did not
know soon enough to attend. He is buried in Cincinnati. I did not know any of
Bob's family. His obituary says his stepfather, Ashmore Brady lives there as
well as a stepbrother Anthony Brady. Ashmore probably is uncommon enough to
find a listing to get the exact location.
I miss him every day.
I worked with Bob at Pine Street Inn and was also shocked and very sad to
learn about his death. He died in the winter (can't remember which month --
February ?). I was told he'd been in the hospital with a foot infection; he'd
stepped on some glass. While there, he developed a blood clot or an infection
that went to his brain. His death was very sudden and unexpected.
Though I left Pine Street last October, I have stayed in touch with people who
worked there. Everyone was stunned and deeply saddened by his death. He died
on his daughter's 12th birthday. His passing is a huge loss to many people,
and I know he is still very much missed. His memorial service was beautiful
-- full of music, loving words, tears, and some laughter.
I wish I could tell you more. I don't know where he's buried; I think maybe in
Cleveland, where his family is. You might want to be in touch with Lyndia
Downie, the president of Pine Street Inn. You can reach her at:
All the best,
