Our family has been friends with Bob Gigante and his family for more than 50 years. A true friendship.

Bob was such a down to earth guy, who never forgot where he came from and always stood for the “little guy”.

A respected lawyer and judge, he left his mark on the Staten Island legal community and so many families that entered his courtroom.

Mary Pat and I extend our deepest condolences to Barbara and their family.
