Robert T Marra, 90, of Vero Beach, Florida passed away on April 15, 2024


Robert, fondly known as Bob, was born to Mario and Jean Marra, on June 18, 1933 in Flushing, NY.

He was a talented baseball player, starring at Long Island University. He signed with the Brooklyn Dodger organization, but an arm injury ended his baseball dream prematurely. Soon after Bob joined the Marines and was eventually honorably discharged for health reasons. Bob would then start is professional career with Con Edison. Con Ed would be the only employer he would know retiring in 1994.

Bob was predeceased by his wife Arlene C. Marra. He was the father of Matthew Marra and his wife Elisa of Naples, FL, Craig Marra of Waldwick, NJ and Carolyn Muller of Nazareth, PA; grandfather of Robert S Marra and his wife Mary, Halle Marra Gates and her husband Chris, Ronald Muller Jr, Kelly Muller Bove and her husband Tony and Kyle Muller: great-grandfather of Emery and Caden Bove. He spent the last 9 years enjoying  life with his partner Linda Barberi. They took many wonderful trips together over those years.

Aside from his love for baseball, Bob was an avid golfer and enjoyed playing until age 87. He also enjoyed running having competed in The New York City Marathon and The Marine Corp Marathon.  Late in life he took great pride in giving back. He enjoyed his time volunteering at the Indian River Food Bank and Dogs for  Life.


Per Bob’s wishes, there will be no service. He would like you to consider making a donation to Dogs for Life of Vero Beach in his name at

  • 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.
