Bob (Robert James) Delmonico, 73, passed away unexpectedly on August 12, 2019, while at the VA Clinic for a routine eye examine. Sandy, his wife of 36 years, was by his side at the time of his passing.

He and his son were feted with a family birthday party on the previous Saturday, two days prior to his death.

At the age of 18, Bob was drafted into the U S Army. Within weeks he was sent to serve in Vietnam, at which time he was exposed to Agent Orange. After serving in Vietnam for two years, he returned to Oakland, California to complete his four years of service to our country.  He received five distinguished medals during the war. Due to his exposure to Agent Orange, Bob continued to cope with various physical and medical problems for the remainder of his life.    

A native of Utica, New York, Bob moved to Baytown in 1980 to accept a job with GTE Phone Company.

At this time, Bob found Sandy, who was also working at the phone company. Two years later he married the love of his life.

Bob welcomed all to his dinner table and loved sharing his culinary skills with the family and friends. Everyone that put their feet under his table felt the love and joy he generously gave to all.

Bob is survived by his wife, Sandy; his daughter Kelley McFaddin (Shawn), his daughter Jennifer Perry (Chad), and son Jeff Delmonico. Also surviving are his six grandchildren Allie and Avery McFaddin, Houston, Addison, Marshall and Campbell Perry.

After cremation, his remains will be buried in the VA National Cemetery in Houston, Texas, with full military honors. A date has yet to be determined.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2019, at 10 a.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church, 5010 N Main, Baytown, with the Rev. Meredith Crigler officiating. Immediately after the service, in keeping with Bob’s Italian heritage, there will be an Italian Buffet served in Bonner Hall.
