Robert Guy “Bob” Peluso

Robert Guy “Bob” Peluso

On February 15, 2024 after 85 and a half amazing years Robert Guy “Bob” Peluso passed away peacefully with his family by his side. Family and friends know and love Bob as a son, brother, grandson, husband, dad, Papa, uncle, brother-in-law, father-in-law, cousin and friend.  Bob was a scholar, scientist, rescuer, inventor, world traveler, conversationalist and story-teller. A Pitt Panther fan, hand baller, bowler, jokester, leader, and listener. The best Shamoo ride giver, wine maker, foodie, pasta maker, provider and helper. A Frank Sinatra aficionado, music lover, and Fox News junkie. He was non-judgemental and endlessly supportive. Impeccable with his word and generous with his time and money. A brilliant mind and a fierce heart. He was simply the best. Bob will be missed by everyone who knew him.

Friends and family will be received on Wednesday February 21st from 2-4 and 6-8 PM in The Huntsman Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Moon Twp. (1522 Coraopolis Hts. Rd.)  Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Thursday at 10 AM in St. Margaret Mary Church, Moon Twp. (everyone please meet at the church) Private interment will be at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery, Hopewell.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: The Wounded Warrior Project

  8. Words are hard to come by. This poem would seem to fit for Bob, requiescat in pace:
    BY Rudyard Kipling
    If you can keep your head when all about you   
        Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
        But make allowance for their doubting too;   
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
        Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
        And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
        If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
        And treat those two impostors just the same;   
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
        Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
        And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
        And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
        And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
        To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
        Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
        Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
        If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
        With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
        And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

  10. I have the fondest memories of Bob and his sense of humor! He was a bright, hilarious and talented man. I’ve never met anyone like him, and would never expect to. He will be greatly missed. We are all blessed to have known him.


  12. Bob
    You were a true friend!
    I enjoyed our time together over the years cheering on Pitt
    Life is Funny I met Doc later in Life and he became my Great Friend and through him I met you and you became my Great Friend
    Now you are both in Heaven together again
    I just wish we had more time to spend together
    Love Ya

  13. Mr. P was our Center Chief at MSHA’s Technical Support Center in Pittsburgh. He was great to work for – always friendly, very likeable, and fun to be around. My condolences.

    1. Uncle Bob,

      You were a true Patriarch, leading with kindness, love and warmth. You always had the patience and humor to embrace all of us by connecting with each of us.

      You are loved and will be greatly missed.

  14. Dear Shirley and Anna,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    With deepest sympathy,
    Bob and Mary Ann Sinicrope
