I have no further information at this time and this is so fricken sad it brings tears to my eyes.  I have meant to call Bob so many times lately and with all the troubles my own family has been subjected to, I've failed a friend.

I noticed he hadn't been on here lately and I saw a couple of days ago that he hadn't logged into GC.com since June 1, but figured he was doing other things.  This is so sad.  Bob was a witty fellow and a truly nice guy.  He will be missed.

He liked blacks BBQ. We are going to San Antonio this weekend. Will stop by there and have a sandwich and brew in his honor. We used to discuss our BBQ likes and dislikes. Really nice guy.

my prayers to his family.  I saw him a few months ago at lunch one day and talked for a while.  I had hoped to see him out and about more.

I am so sad. Bob was one of the first cachers I ever had contact with. When I first started caching, I DNF'd one of his caches (I think I had 30-40 finds at the time) and he emailed me a HUGE hint. The next day, I went out and found the cache (I think it was Tighty-Whitey).....

 

Everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting and knowing him will miss his smiling face.

 

Rest in peace, buddy. Seabrook's not going to be the same without you.

This is a huge loss.  He was a great guy.  Like JuleeD, he was one of the first to help me with a hint on a cache.  Always there to help, plan, BS, and laugh with you.  He'd always get you to smile no matter how bad a day it was.  He always helped on CLAPS events shuttling people -- and finally got to go paddling himself and enjoy the pleasures of kayaking.  And I'm so glad he did as it was something he truly enjoyed, and even got to share with others.  I will miss his constant harassment about paddling events in the cold of winter (and he was always there with hot chocolate for the nuts who participated) and the lunacy of the annual nighttime events (where he alway saw us off -- as well as nearly every other daytime event).  I'll miss his regular injections of sharp wit, too. 

 

RIP, Bob.

I hadn't talked to him since we left for vacation, and was wondering about him this morning.  I was planning on giving a call, but am now kicking myself for not calling him earlier.

Hmmmm, Seems like a Fall event (once things calm down a bit and cooler weather prevails ) at Blacks BBQ in Lockhart would be fitting. Something along the line of "BBQBOB2 Pearly Gates Takeout".

 

Just thinking out loud.

Wow this brings tears to my eyes.

Last Wednesday I invited him to my Tutti Fruiti event & I was really hoping to see him 'cause it had been so long...

He is such a great guy & I always think of him when I drive near the Taylor Lake Village area.

Please keep us updated...

Bob was a really neat guy. I will never forget him coming to events with his cute, little granddaughter, Emily. RIP Bob.

And don't forget the Quidditch event he hosted.  He was truly a great guy and I always enjoyed his harassing at the launch of the few kayaking events I attended.

It's been so long since we've seen just about anyone on the southeast side of town due to most of the events being during the week and it just being too far to make them.  Bob will be missed.  Like Heftydude, I think about the Quidditch event he hosted.   That was definitely a unique one.

I was really shocked and saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Always a fun guy to be around. I always enjoyed his meet and greet event in the parking lot of the Stafford center for the Hot Sauce Festival. I'm thinking about posting a meet and greet there Sep. 20 in his memory.

ROBERT JOSEPH CLEMENTI, JR., of Seabrook, Texas passed away August 19, 2014 after a long battle with melanoma. Bob was born on March 23, 1955 in Englewood, New Jersey and grew up in Binghamton, New York. He attended Catholic Central High School and later SUNY at Binghamton. Bob graduated from the University of Buffalo with a Bachelors of Science degree in 1978 and worked for Total Petrochemicals and later AKZO Nobel Polymer Chemicals. Throughout school, and into adulthood, Bob was an enthusiastic sports fan. He played basketball, football, baseball, lacrosse and golf, to name just a few. Bob loved the Boston Red Sox and had just fulfilled a lifelong dream of touring their home at Fenway Park.
In recent years, Bob spent time geocaching, and had logged caches all over the United States. He made many friends in the community and learned to kayak. Bob loved sports cars and enjoyed watching the classics be restored and driven. His greatest pleasure however, was spending time with family and reminiscing about days gone by.
Bob is predeceased by his mother, Ruth Maggioni Clementi and son, Daniel James Clementi. He is survived by his father, Robert Joseph Clementi, Sr.; wife, Patricia Rose Clementi; daughters, Anne Marie Clementi Hamilton (husband, Justin), Elizabeth Rose Clementi; and son, Robert Edward Clementi (fiance, Kynndra Wells). Bob also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren Emily, Colin and John, his sister, Carol Clementi Rueckle (husband, David) and his brothers, Paul Clementi, Tom Clementi, and Jim Clementi (wife, Dominica). He will be missed dearly by his entire family, including a loving host of nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws .
Visiting hours will be held at Forest Park East Funeral Home on Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 1-4PM. A funeral mass will be held at St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church, 3131 El Dorado Blvd. Houston, Texas on Monday, August 25, 2014 at 10:30am. A lunch reception will follow immediately after in the church social hall.
