Roper, as we called him, umpired my brothers and I in Avon-Belmar Little League. He also coached me in JV baseball at Red Bank Regional. He was a great man and mentor. My condolences to his family.

I attended St Leo College with Bob and graduated with him. He was a wonderful guy, always had a smile that lit up a room. He was a really good basketball player too! God Bless you Bob!

So very sad to hear of Bob's passing. Sadly, I haven't seen him in many years but have very fond childhood memories of spending time on 14th Avenue in Belmar with mutual friends. I remember his excitement and anticipation of attending college at St Leo in St Augustine, FL. RIP Bob it appears as your life was well lived and a blessing to be remembered. L Cereghini

We'll miss Bob's 100-watt smile and positive attitude. He was one of a kind. Never forgotten. Always in our hearts. Our prayers to the Roper family.
