Bobby Dery was my dearest and best friend for over 50 years. I met Bobby when he and I were just 8 years old and we remained "brothers" until he died in 2004. Bobby was beloved by all who were fortuante enough to know him ... and, thankfully, everyone in our class knew him well. We knew him as an exuberant cheerleader, an ardent sports fan, the lead actor in our numerous school plays, and someone who had a huge smile and a kind word for everyone he met. Bobby was the loving husband of Patti, devoted father to Matt and Todd, and grandfather to Jace, Reese, Andrew and Brooke. I think of Bobby every day of my life and I know he would have been excited to help plan and enthusiastically attend our 50th high school reunion ... and I know that he'll be with us in spirit, cheering us on!

I believe it was Bobby, then a MALE cheerleader (we had no shame) with the Sternheimer twins and me, who came up with "Elevator, eleavator! We got the shaft!"

 Bobby was funny,fun,warm and kind.I knew that when I saw Bobby I would get a big bear hug and a good laugh.He was the BEST--I adored him and my children did also.I think of him often and will always miss him.He will be in my heart forever.


Bobby planned every reunion.A reunion without him is not the same.However,he would want us all to have a great time and he will be with us in spirit.

I have wonderful memories of Bo-ba. He was always so kind, so much fun and just a great soul. I had no idea he had passed and send my condolences to all and a big thank you to Bobby for always being so kind.

What a great guy.  I really got to know Bobby when we were Cheerleaders.  He was just the nicest and funniest person and I'm sorry I won't get a chance to see him at the reunion.

Bobby was the nicest person and always treated me like a V.I.P. He will always be missed.
