Lyta and family. I am saddened by this news. He was a great supporter of Melrose Youth Hockey and certainly me. I really enjoyed our talks regarding Robbie's teams. He was always there to keep me in line. He was a calming gentleman for our parents as well. I am sorry I could not attend the services as I was vacationing in Scottsdale this past week. Hugs to everyone involved. A good friend to all. Prayers, Bob Varney.

Bobby was so easy to be around. He would always smile, tell you a funny and then ask how you were. He loved his family. He was a treasure and will be so missed by everyone who knew him.

Lyta and family. I am so sad to hear of Bob's passing. I have such great memories of the endless amount of fun we had with our kids and all the hockey people. Our bus trips to Canada.Our trips to the Cape and Maine and all the hockey parties. Bob was a big part of all that fun. How lucky we all were to have him in our lives. There was no one in the world Bob loved more than Lyta. He had a wonderful family and a great life. Rest In Peace my friend.

I knew Bob for many years through our business relationship.
In addition to excelling at his profession, he was the most personable individual that I have ever known. Most people became his friend after just one conversation. May he Rest In Peace.

Ever since I first met Bob, he always had a friendly hello and way about him that I enjoyed for the past 45 years that we have known each other. He was a welcomed addition to our large extended family and was loved by all. Bob, you were always a wonderful and loving father, Nonno, and friend. Thank you also for being a loving husband to my little cousin. I will miss you at all our family gatherings. Love, Tommy
