Robert Bacisin-Baron - Bob - began his eternal life with the Lord on Monday, July 15, 2019. He is enjoying the fullness of happiness with freedom of movement with no pain, no agony.
Bob was born on June 25, 1950 in Cleveland, Ohio. He was the first altar boy at St. Mary´s where his family lived in Elyria, Ohio and attended Catholic school. Bob graduated with a BA degree in History from the University of Miami in Florida where he played baseball and jai alai and attended Law School in Boston, Massachusetts where he achieved his Juris Doctorate. He went on to practice Estate Planning Law in California.
Bob grew up in a very loving family with his parents, John and Helen Bacisin and his brother, Gary. He lost his Dad in the 1980´s. He also had a very close and loving bond with his Mom with whom he was in touch with every day until her death in August 2017.
Bob is survived by his wife, Ritaestelle Christiano (nee Molony), his step-son, Donny Christiano and step-granddaughter, Gianna Christiano in New Jersey, his step-daughter, Alison Thomas (nee Christiano) (Daniel Morrone) in Pennsylvania, his brother, Gary Bacisin-Baron (Carol Edgerton) in Ohio, his neice, Blair Burch, Atty-At-Law (Tyler Burch) in North Carolina. Bob is pre-deceased by his step-son-in-law, Lenny Thomas and Gianna´s mom, Ciara Hadrick.
An unbelievably avid and voracious reader, Bob always had a book handy and could recount plots and characters from books he had read decades earlier! A truly erudite, intelligent man who had an encyclopedic-like mind of knowledge.
He was privileged to have met some of his favorite authors, Dorothy Dunnett, Tad Williams and George R. R. Martin and in fact had dinner with the latter in Chinatown, Philadelphia.
Some of Bob´s favorite foods include everything from Burger King, Wendy´s, KFC, Arby´s and Taco Bell - just to name a few - yes, Bob was a fast food junkie! He also enjoyed Ritaestelle´s cooking and his Mom´s chicken and rice and chicken paprikash. His birthday cake every year was chocolate cake with pink frosting (except this year when Ritaestelle made yellow cake by accident).
He also LOVED classic rock music and his music could be heard from outside at times.
Bob had a tremendous sense of humor and there are too many Bobisms to mention.
Bob was a gregarious, generous, brilliant individual who dynamically lived his life to the fullest and loved the Lord! May his soul rest in peace in the arms of our heavenly Father!
