Robert A. “Bob” Gullo
Robert A. “Bob” Gullo passed away suddenly but peacefully at home on November 6, 2021 at the age of 85 and went to be with his Lord and loving family members in Heaven.
Bob was born on September 22, 1936 in Rochester to Frank and Jennie Gullo and was the oldest of 3 sons.
Bob is survived by his wife Jacqueline “Jackie”, sons Robert II, Christopher, Stephen (Paula) and daughter Susan. Bob is survived by six grandchildren Annabeth, Jack, Patrick, Amelia, Rebecca and Samantha. Bob is also survived by two brothers Richard (Patricia) and James (Katherine) and many friends, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Bob enjoyed spending time with his family and was a loving, devoted and dedicated husband to his wife Jackie and was her primary caregiver for many years. Bob and Jackie recently celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary. Bob was a wonderful, nurturing and supportive Pop-Pop (Grandpa) to all of his grandchildren. He loved telling stories, being silly and always tried to bring joy to the room.
Bob started his career as a professor of Mathematics at the University of Rochester while earning his PhD. While getting ready to prepare his dissertation, he was recruited by Monroe Community College (MCC) to be one of the founding faculty members in the Mathematics department. This group of MCC math department founding faculty members became like family. Bob taught at MCC for over 33 years.
Bob was an avid train enthusiast and owned (along with this wife Jackie) the Whistle Stop Trains hobby shop in Irondequoit for many years. Bob was a long-time member of the Toy Train Collectors Society and enjoyed attending train meets and spending time working on his large self-built train layout in his home. Bob was also a devoted member of St. Louis Parish and sang in the choir. The Gullo family loved the many motorhome cross-country vacations they took, visiting historical sites and other destinations in over 30 states. He also loved jazz music and was an accomplished trumpet player as a proud member of the drum and bugle corps in his youth.
