Bit late with this but I just saw on the obits & wanted to express my sorrow at Bob's passing to Dorothy & the family. They were our neighbors way back when & I enjoyed babysitting the kids when needed b/c Bob & Dorothy were such sweet people! They were good neighbors & good friends to my mom & stepdad Jesse & Margaret Camelo. I would have made an effort to be at the funeral home had I seen this earlier. God bless you all~~even now I'm sure you grieve! Prayers are with you! Judi McGarry

Mr. Fahey, was the GRETEST teacher, person, and friend, I ever had, and anyone who knew or met him, was greatly rewarded just by knowing him. I shall never forget him or all he has done for me in school, and after. May God grant you the best place in Heaven. Rest in Peace.

A wonderful English teacher to me for four years and a good friend.

Uncle Bob led a long and storied life, including his honored military service as well as his extended education career. Affectionately referred to as "the dumbest educated man he knew" by our father Don McCormick due to his lack of mechanical skills, he was able to teach our Mom (Molly) his sister, how to drive when she was in her 50's! His pipe/cigar aroma was a familiar scent at most family functions growing up, along with his ever-present newsboy cap to cover his bare head. He had a quiet, unassuming nature, always with a kind word or inquisitive question about our family. He will be sorely missed.

Mr Fayhey was my Latin teacher I gave him such a hard time but he endured and I surprisingly learned in spite of myself. He was honest understanding and compassionate always giving good advice. He was a great teacher. I will always remember his talks. I had great respect for him. Prayers of comfort for his wife and family.

Christmas mornings weren’t complete at my house growing up until my dad spoke to his godfather, uncle bob to wish each other a merry Christmas. God bless you Uncle Bob. You meant so much to my father. My most positive vibes and blessings to the family during this time.

Wow. Such fond memories of his class at Shadyside. I credit him for my ease with grammar and love of literature. He taught us the old school way. God bless you, Robert!

Mr. Fahey was a very nice man. He always told me that my son Nate was the best altar server we had at St. John's. Mr. Fahey has earned his wings.
