Robert Anthony Serrao

December 6, 1931 — July 17, 2020

Robert “Bob” Anthony Serrao, 88, passed away on Friday, July 17, 2020 surrounded by his family.

Bob was educated at Ambler High School, West Chester College, and Temple University.  He also proudly served in the Marine Corps as a Staff Sergeant.  After leaving the Marines, he started a career in the insurance industry that lasted more than 50 years.   

Bob was an avid golfer and loved the camaraderie and friendship that came along with playing as much as he did the game itself (not to mention the cigars). He taught many younger men how to play golf and usually managed to slip in a useful life lesson as well, even if it was just being a quiet example of what a man should be. 

Even more than golf, Bob loved his family. His favorite times were spent surrounded by friends and family. He reveled in lingering at the dinner table laughing and sharing old stories for hours after the meal was over.  He was a true and loyal friend, a fair and ethical businessman, a kind and gentle father and grandfather, a devoted and loving husband.

Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Elizabeth.

He is survived by his children, Mary, Michael (Amy), and Kathryn (Kenneth); and three grandchildren, Sara, Grace, and Charlie.
