Bob was always such a down-to-earth, practical, caring person, and sports fan, that I can honestly say I enjoyed every moment that I ever experienced in Bob's company. Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to you for your loss. I can only hope that Bob's caring husband and Father inspiring memories will be a comfort for each of you, and all of us, who had ever been touched by Bob's life.

It was an honor and a pleasure to have you as a friend and co-worker. You dragged yourself into work on midnight shifts when most would have thrown in the towel. I don't think I have ever met a stronger person. Rest in Peace my friend. Whatever, Zippity, Ziggy Schwartz(I know it's Iggy)

My prayers and thoughts go out to the entire Dally family . Bob was a great guy , friend and coworker. I looked forward to every shift with him , it was always an adventure . His lust for life and love of people made him one of our best. He is leaving us a void that can't be filled. But also leaving us with great fond memories. Thank you Bob, God bless.

My heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Dally and family. Bob "Mr. Dally" was a very good friend for many years. I, too, had the pleasure of being a co-worker as an employee of the Belmont Police Traffic Division. "Mr. Dally", Waverley Square will not be the same without you. Rest In Peace, my friend. I will miss seeing you and "Freddy" on your walks.
