Robert J. O’Neill, born January 7, 1931, in Cleveland, Ohio, later from Buffalo, New York, and presently from Delray Beach, Florida. Bob, as he was known, never met a store window that he could not transform into a beautiful seasonal theme, or a schmatta that he could not style into a glamorous garment, or a drink that he didn’t like, or music that he could not dance to. He was passionate about art, travel and beautiful things. He led a joyous life, loved his family, and will be sorely missed. He is survived by his wife, Betsi, and their daughter; by his first wife, Patricia Mullen, and their seven children; and by his brother, Msgr. Kevin O’Neill of the Buffalo Diocese. He leaves 16 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He loved them all and was joyful knowing that all have happy and loving families. A celebration mass will be held on Wednesday, June 17 at 10:30 in the morning at Ascension Catholic Church, located at 7250 N. Federal Hwy., Boca Raton, Florida. The funeral Mass may be viewed at Youtube.com (search: ascensionbocafl). He will be laid to rest at Boca Raton Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favorite charity in his memory.
