Every once in a while, the world is graced with an exceptionally special person, and Mr. Pepe was one of those people. The lives of those who were lucky enough to know him are forever changed for the better.

Bob was one of the best people I ever had the privilege of meeting and calling a dear friend. From the minute we moved to Doylestown 17 years ago, he was always kind, outgoing, and more than willing to lend a helping hand or have a funny story to share. I enjoyed our many conversations, rounds of golf, great Italian dinners, family parties, and songs. He was a larger-than-life character who could light up any room he went into. My wife Jeannine, our kids, parents and brothers/sisters loved Bob like he was a member of our own family. He will be dearly missed by all. God bless.

May fond, shared memories give you all some buoyancy in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I am feeling soothed that he was tended for so lovingly during a time of such isolation. My love to all of you and heartfelt sadness for your loss. Inge K-Stannik
