Bob graduated from St. Aloysius High School and then attended Loyola University New Orleans where he earned his B.S. and Juris Doctorate degrees, and was a member of Beggars Fraternity. Over the years, Bob was a devoted attorney, and had a very special talent in representing his many clients, including the Bacchus Carnival Organization. He loved people and was very active with the Christian Brothers Foundation and Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre. Bob also enjoyed traveling. He especially loved New York City and the European Countries with Paris being his favorite. However more important to Bob than all of his business and social accomplishments was the time that he spent with his family.
