Robert G.  Bob” Kamm - October 10, 1948–February 5, 2018.

Bob was born and raised in his dad’s bakery in the Wissinoming section of Northeast Philadelphia.  As a youngster, he loved playing and watching baseball.  Known as Bobby Kamm, he and his friends made many trips to Shibe Park later known as Connie Mack Stadium to watch the Phillies play.  He attended St. Bart’s Elementary School and graduated from Father Judge High School in 1966.  He boxed and played basketball as well. 

Bob Kamm and Cindy Cossabone were married on June 13, 1981.  During their first nine years of marriage, they bowled, played golf and went to the Jersey shore.  Then, they decided they wanted a baby.  It was Bob’s wish to have a son who loved sports.  His prayers were answered after David was born in July 1990. Bob took good care of David when he was a baby and toddler, and later on helped coaching him in various sports.   

He took great pride in his work.  And as a Mechanical Designer for over 40 years, he designed all sorts of manufacturing equipment.   When he retired at 62, he became a driver for an assisted living facility in Bensalem, PA. 

Bob’s devotion to God has been an inspiration to his family. We will always remember him for his unconditional love, protection and guidance throughout life.
