We, the Marino family, are so grateful  for all of the generosity that has enabled us to fight Bob’s battle with such kindness, love and faith by all of you over the past 9 months. Bob was constantly moved to tears and humbled as the love poured in and his heart was full. All of our hearts are.

 

In the quiet afternoon of July 19, Robert “Bob” H. Marino passed away peacefully with his wife by his side at the age of 65. His family was always his #1 priority. He is survived by the love of his life, Sheri (VanHouten) Marino, his amazing children; daughter Carli (Marino) Lampley, son-in-law Edward Lampley, grandson Beau Lampley, son Benjamin Marino & fiancée Mia Tortora, son Cole Marino and son Jordan Marino. Also his precious parents Harold and Fortuna Marino, brother Mark Marino, sisters & bro-in-laws, Kim & Paul Resetar and Joan & Kyle Enger, father-in-law Richard Van Houten, in-laws Bonnie (Van Houten) Lewis & Sam Lewis, Richard & Julie Van Houten Jr., Drew & Leslie VanHouten and many aunts, uncle, nieces, nephews, cousins & a world of friends. Raised in North Haledon NJ, Bob graduated Don Bosco Prep ’71 and Illinois Institute of Technology ‘76. He worked at Ace Reprographics, Paterson for 30 years, Solutions3 LLC, and most recently with Keller Williams Realty. His family resides in Allendale NJ.

 

Bob was passionate about God, family and music… & fishing in Canada too. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone not touched by Bob’s kindness, warm smile, encouraging spirit, and the ability to make even the most mundane fun. He brought heaven to earth with his music. His unique & extraordinary guitar-playing and soulful songs changed lives. He bravely battled cancer full of faith in Jesus and yielded to finally enter His kingdom in Heaven to see him face to face. Bob will be deeply missed until we meet again.

 

Visitation to pay respects to the family: Friday 7/27 from 2:00-6:00 at their home of worship, Bethany Church, 568 Wellington Dr, Wyckoff NJ.

Celebration Service for Bob’s life will be held:  Saturday 7/28 at 11:00am also at Bethany Church.  

 

Bob and Sheri’s music will soon be available on i-tunes.  His inspiration was always the good news of Jesus and the great hope & promise of Heaven.

 

In lieu of flowers, we are continuing to accept contributions to assist with medical and continuing expenses.

Thank you all for your generosity!

In a recent turn of events we have found lymphoma in his brain and spine as well - your donations are making it possible for us to get the treatment we need ASAP.

We could not get the treatment needed without you and are so overwhelmed by those who have given and sent kind faithful words our way.

Thank you all so much! In under 24 hours we have received so much love and support. We are actually a bit broken and swollen eyed.

Will send a video and some updated pictures of dad soon as well as updates so we can share a bit of the journey we have been on.

Love you love you love you all!
