    candle 2I have so many fond memories of Mr.Guerra!! All the fun times the Guerras would come over and hang out with us. Sometimes Mr. Guerra would start singing funny songs and dance. He was always SO cool. Lots of heart to heart talks where he would famously say ” you just do what you gotta do”. I can remember one night mom and I were having a big ol fight and he came in to intervene… Mr. Guerra sat with us until dad came home. Mr Guerra was an awesome, big hearted, fun loving, larger than life man and Scout Leader.!! I will cherish my Memories of all the Scout outings, backyard BBQs, swimming pools and 4th of Julys! Mrs. Guerra, Kevin and Brian.. my heart is breaking for you! I am sending love and support. Please let me know if you need ANYTHING. Love you guys !

    Bob was a very close cousin whom I was proud to grow up with. We worked together at Biederman furniture and for A short time at Roadway Frieght. We went fishing after getting off work at 1 30 am,played golf and horseshoes. Bob was 4 days older than me and I would make a point to call the old fart Happy Birthday. Rest In Peace cous.

    candle 5Bob Guerra was more than just a friend to me. He was my neighbor-in-law, Helper, mechanic, fishing buddy and for ad least 20 years my Deer Hunting Partner ( just to name a few). Had wonderful times in his backyard or mine with the Guerras. Bob and I were Scout leaders in Troop 470 together, we took the boys on several campouts over the years and share many stories!. To me Bob is not gone, because he is always with me in my head through memories. As long as I am alive he is too !

    Though Bob and I didn’t play together much in childhood (due to our 10 year difference in age), I remember cousin Bob mostly at the many Guerra family gatherings. I extend my heartfelt sympathy to the family at this time of loss. Though it is best for me to stay home during these uncertain days, be assured you all are on my mind and in my heart.

    Cousin Dean Cimaglia (and all his family: Doris, Denise Lincoln, David and Daryl Cimaglia).

    Bobby was my first cousin so even though I wanted to marry him when I was little it would happen I wish that we had not lost touch when my dad passed away and Aunt Jean and
    Uncle Lou too. Reading some of the awesome things people have written has let me know some of the Bobby I missed. My prayers and
    thoughts are with him and all the family. For health issues I was unable to come tonight but Bobby you will always be in my heart ♥️
