Robert “Bob” Fulgoni

October 31, 1946 ~ January 09, 2022

Robert (Bob) Fulgoni, 75, passed away at VNA Hospice House in Vero Beach, Florida on January 9, 2022.

 

Born October 31, 1946, in Manhattan, NY, he was the son of the late Charles and Julia Fulgoni. A graduate of Power Memorial High School, Iona College, and Brooklyn Polytechnic School, Bob worked managing the manufacturing of pharmaceutical and personal care products.

 

He worked in the lawn and garden department of Target after his retirement. Bob met his wife, the former Pat Fecenko, while he and she were working for Bristol Myers. Upon their marriage in 1981, he embraced a new ten-year-old daughter, Amy, and a herd of Irish-Ukrainian relatives. Bob and Pat lived in New Jersey, Ohio, and Nevada before retiring to Vero Beach.

 

They made many “trips of a lifetime,” including a thirty-day cruise from Sydney to Los Angeles, three Panama Canal cruises, and five transatlantic cruises. Until her passing in 2014, Bob’s cousin Julie Longinotti and her husband, Gino, Bob’s friend since kindergarten, joined Bob and Pat on these trips.

 

In addition to his wife, Pat; daughter, Amy Taylor; son-in-law, Corey Marks; and granddaughter, Madeleine Taylor-Marks, Bob is survived by his brother, Richard Fulgoni; sister-in-law, Joann; nephew, Jason; other cousins, and Pat’s sisters, brother, their spouses, and many nieces and nephews.

 

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to VNA Hospice House or the charity of your choice.

Bob was our good friend for 16 years. During this time he had the compassion for making people around him happy. He volunteered
for many social events such as keeping our failing poker club going, when the Elks need more Clowns for their parade Bob was there
for the laughs he provided for others, when you wanted to hear about the Yankee’s he could give you the name and position of
every player , when you needed a ride, you got it. The gentle giant meant so much to so many whose memories of the good times
we will always cherish and never forget. It is often said that being being associated with happy people enhances and lengthens
your life. Bob, completed that mission and we are so blessed we had that that relationship. God Bless
Love, Jim and Patti

We weren’t lifetime friends but in the time that we did know Pat and (Bob) we enjoyed (Bob)‘s sense of humor, his wit, and his knowledge on any subject you wanted to bring up. He will be sadly missed by all of his good friends. God be with Pat during this troubling time – may her memories bring her comfort.

Good friends never say Goodbye- they simply say…. “See you soon”!

    • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

    • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
