Bob was born Jan. 15, 1942, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Margaret (Leonard) and Salvatore Adipietro. He was raised in Brooklyn, then moved out east with his family. He graduated from Center Moriches High School. Eventually he settled on the North Fork, in Peconic, where he raised his family.
Bob worked as a self-employed real estate agent and antiques dealer. He operated East End Realty in Laurel and the North Fork Trading Post in Greenport. Not only did he enjoy real estate and antiques, but he also was a member of the Kiwanis Club, a big history buff and an avid Yankees fan.
