Bob proudly served in the Marine Corps for 21 years. He served two tours in Vietnam during the war. He met his future wife in Nicaragua while in charge of the embassy security.  Later, they would form their own Security Guard company and run it together.

He is survived by his wife, Liana, his five children, Alfonso and Rebecca, Dr. Alexander and Cathy, Wilfredo, Dr. Liana Raquel, Dr. Jorge and Dr. Jo Anne Meier, and ten grandchildren that he loved very much. He was a friendly man who loved to talk to anyone around him.  He loved to dance and cook dinners with his friends in the Gourmet Club for over 25 years!
