Obituary

Robert “Bob” Tobin, 80, died peacefully on August 3, 2017.

Bob was born on November 28, 1936 in Brooklyn, New York. He attended high school at Brooklyn Tech and graduated in 1954. Bob took evening classes at Pace College (now Pace University) while working and received his BBA degree in Accounting. Bob began his career with Western Electric in New York and moved with his family to Colorado in 1972. He transferred to Mountain Bell in Denver and he retired to his home in Arvada. Bob was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Telephone Pioneers Club of America. He also volunteered at the Phoenix Concept in Denver teaching computer skills to men in addiction rehabilitation. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing tennis, walking around the lake by home, and stamp collecting.
