With thanks to God and to Bob, Bob was a first coach in football to my sons and their JV teams at St. Bede. It was great to work with Bob for years on the St. Bede Athletic Committee. Bob was also part of my grade school memories as I was in class of 1946, 1 year ahead.

Through the years it was always joy to visit with Bob after Mass, at a game, at the store, or other event. It was a great way to stay up to date and witness, appreciate what a great parish and neighborhood community we live in.

My condolences to the entire Fuchs family. I grew up in Point Breeze and was probably in Frick Park Market every day. Bammer was always welcoming to me and the rest of my family. He was genuine. He cared about the community and dedicated his life to making it better - a model for all of us. I’m thankful that I got to grow up in Point Breeze with such wonderful people like Bammer, who lived to enriched other people’s lives.

What a one timer. No one quite like him. He coached our boys and when they were in college, waited after Sunday Mass to ask how they were doing. And years later, asked about their families, and how they were doing. He'd yell a hello at 6:30 in the morning from his van when he'd pass our firehouse in the Strip. Never had time for a coffee. And always a smile. Yes, a one timer in this world. Blessings.

We lived next door to the Fuchs family in the late 1960's and early 1970's. He was always such a nice man. My prayers are with the Fuchs family.

God be with you, Bobby, and all of your family. I have many great memories of you and your family in the old Point Breeze neighborhood. Those were my formative years in the 50's and 60's that have carried me through my entire life. Thank you. God bless.

May he Rest In Peace. His faith in the love of Jesus reinforced my faith in many interactions with Bammer after mass at St.Bede over the years.

I was blessed to have worked with him and Ronnie as a teenager and so did my son, some 30 years later.

Bammer’s somewhat gruff personality was always overshadowed by his generous heart with his time and treasure. His legacy will live far beyond his passing.

Well done faithful servant!

So many wonderful memories growing up in Point Breeze are centered on hanging out at Sterrett playground and going to Frick Park Market.
Thank you Bammer for supporting the 1st ever girls softball teams in Point Breeze, back in the 70’s! Bammer knew there were athletic girls in the neighborhood who wanted to play and he believed in us:) He was a man ahead of his time.
He kept track of and supported all the kids who grew up in Point Breeze probably until the day he died.
God bless you Bammer and may you be at peace.

Although, we never knew Robert that well except to visit the store, we send our deepest sympathies to all of you at this time. May the Lord comfort each and everyone of you.
