Robert Amos, Sr.

Bobby was born in Sutton West Virginia and loved West Virginia. He also lived in Ohio.

He came to Vermont in 1972 when he went to work for his Uncle Ron and lucky for us he stayed. He later worked for another Uncle Chuck. He worked for him until starting Bob’s Auto Service in Essex Junction In 1983. We are still there. Worked with two sons for a number of years, then just Robbie for the rest. Then had the store where he worked with one daughter and my dad & my brother Louis, Cousin Patty.

All good memories!

We became best friends in 1976 married in 1982.

He leaves behind me, Debbie, our dog Tilly, and our children.
