    Rob was my best friend, who would always be willing to listen to me, laugh at my jokes, and give me great advice when I needed it! I will miss him very much. Rest in peace, my friend.

    So very sad to see of Bob’s passing. We went to #11 School together, and East High also. When we were young, we put together a model car building club. Had a wonderful time growing up. I will miss him so very much. God’s Speed Bomb.

    I am so sorry to hear about Robert. Robert, was my cousin. last time I saw him was uncle Frank’s funeral ,I have a lot of memories of him when we were growing up on Clifford Avenue at my grandmothers house, all the kid sitting at their own table eating spaghetti and the adults were in the dining room. Prayers are with him and family.🙏🏻🙏🏻Carl zarcone cousin

    I am so sorry to hear of my cousin Rob’s passing. It has been quite awhile since we have seen each other or talked (since the passing of his father Frank Zarcone, my uncle, in 2014). My memories of Rob are always at family gatherings where we would share funny stories of our family whenever I would come to visit Rochester.
    My condolences to his wife Jean and her family.

    The news of our Cousin Robbie’s death reached us and we’ve been sharing remembrances of our happy childhood days via texts and phone calls. Robbie, as we called him, was the oldest cousin among a large gang and we all looked up to him. Although we didn’t see him much after the teenage years, his Mom, our Aunt Dorothy, would tell us about her ‘Robert.’ We wanted you to know that we are sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace. Kim Starrak, Jill Kellogg, and Jan Watson (daughters of Haskell ‘Hack’ Watson, Dorothy’s big brother).

    My husband Ken Smith went to Geneseo with Zarc and I met Zarc thru Ken.. He was a fun guy whom we sadly lost touch with, maybe 20 years ago or so; his death, none the less, is a sad shock…Our condolences to the family.

    I have not been in touch with Rob (aka Zarc The Shark) for well over 20 years, not since he was working with me at CCI/Nortel. I always really enjoyed talking with him. Dry wit and quiet delivery; he was one of the funniest people I knew. I felt he was underemployed for how sharp he was, but he seemed content with it at the time.

    I’d forgotten (but see from other condolences here) that he preceded me at East High. Sorry to not be able to reconnect with Rob. My condolences to his family.
