He was always industrious: in his teen years Bob delivered for a pharmacy and a deli. The pay was good but so were the sandwiches from the deli: a growing boy needs to eat. It was also enough money for Bob to buy his first car, a VW: Bob’s car addiction had begun. In later years it was Fords that followed him home a couple of times a year, always bought from Ace Motors. Not only did he buy there but he took his insurance clients to Woodbury to make sure his favorite salesmen gave them a good deal. Of course he always made sure that his clients got more than just insurance from him; listening is a powerful skill. Bob was larger than life and could play the crowd surrounding him keeping them laughing: he claimed he had received a certificate of occupancy from Upper Darby High not a diploma. A funny joke, but no one doubted his math skills.
A company Bob was with sent out post cards for sales leads. One landed on Patricia Moore’ s doorstep. Not only did he make a sale but their friendship grew into a twenty year marriage. Bob is survived by two sisters, Lowanda Jennings and Barbara Gall; children: Christian, Christopher, Justin and Michele Parker and Allison Butler and his tail wagging buddy, Molly. He was pre deceased by son, Drew Belko.
