Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Robert John Rich, 60, of Fort Myers Beach, Florida, passed away on Monday, January 13, 2020 at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers following a brief illness.

Born on August 8, 1959 in Passau, Germany, he was the son of the late Robert and Cornelia (Hoek). Growing up in Dix Hills New York, Bob loved being with his friends and family. He liked music and mechanics. He would be the first to offer help to people, and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He had a passion for cooking and enjoyed preparing food for loved ones.

Bob moved to Fort Myers to be closer to his dad and second mom Barbara (Loeffler) Rich. When his Dad became ill, Bobby moved in and lovingly cared for his father. Whenever in New York, Bob thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his niece Sophia as well as all members of the Roth/Gatti family.

He is survived by sisters: Eileen C. Rich and Donna M. Rich, niece Sophia M. Rich, sister-in-law Debra Roth, siblings from a second marriage: Ed (Betsy) Loeffler, Victoria (John) Leahy, and Ron Loeffler, as well as a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, uncle, and friends.

Bob is now resting easy. We will miss him dearly.

At Bob's request there will be no calling hours or services.

Larger than Life. That's how I remember my cousin Bobby. Always with a smile and wanting to stir up some fun in one way or another. I'll miss him.

Favorite memories of Bobby: When he let me cut his hair (even though he barely knew me); the times he cooked delicious dinners for his sister and me; when he took us to his favorite bar in Ft. Myers (a place that really suited him) for margaritas; the many holidays we spent together; his love and pride in his niece, Sophia; his devoted care of his dad during the last years of his dad’s life. Bobby was fun and fun-loving, one of the most generous people I have ever met, who was always looking to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He lit up a room with his smile and, while he faced challenges, I never heard him complain or blame anyone else. He loved his family. Bobby was one of a kind and he lived his life on his own terms, for which I respected him. He will be sorely missed by all of us who knew and loved him.

I will always remember Bobby as Eileen's kid brother. He was also my sister Mandy's best friend when they were in elementary school together. RIP Bobby. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
