Support Bob LaMantia's family

On the last day of 2020, Bob LaMantia lost his battle to COVID at 64.  While others are celebrating the beginning of a new year, his family grieves the sudden passing of the man who’s always been their rock. To help support them during this unimaginably difficult time, please donate and share this GoFundMe page."

From Tara, his wife on Facebook-
It is with tremendous sadness and a broken heart that I say I lost my best friend, my soulmate, the light of my life, my husband Bob 12/31/20 to Covid. Our world is crushed by this loss. Covid hit our house the first week of December, by Christmas Eve he was intubated, and with the days that followed it ravaged him. He fought with everything in him, but the virus hit him very hard. He wanted to come home to Caitlin and I so desperately.

It’s unimaginable that he will never hold my hand again, touch my face, pull me close to wrap me in his love, tell me how much he loves me! I was so blessed to have had all of this every day since the first day I met him. Truly a wonderful spectacular journey he gave me for 40+ years. Truly the love and light of my life...I will never be the same again! A great man, father, brother, uncle and friend. He loved his family, his faith and his friends.

He touched so many people with his love, kindness, and generosity. He was loved and respected by all who knew him and he will be missed terribly!

God embraced Bob and has taken him home. I take comfort that he is not suffering any longer.

Until we meet again, my sweet love...always and forever.

 - Bob is survived by his wife, Tara, and daughter, Caitlin.
