Obituary For Robert A. Aiello

Aiello, Robert A. "Bob", age 78, on Friday, April 21, 2023, of Baldwin, formerly of Bloomfield.

Beloved husband of Lois Smith-Aiello; father of Diann (Gabriel) Brown and Michele (Derwyn) Hollobaugh; G-pap of Breonna and Braylen Brown and Matthew and Jacob Hollobaugh; son of the late Peter and Josephine Aiello; brother of John (the late Pat) Aiello. Also survived by his lifelong friend Donna Aiello, sister-in-law and friend Helen Smith and by many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law (one predeceased), nieces, nephews and their families.

Bob was a kind man, always wanting to help anyone in need. He loved Pittsburgh sports, being outdoors, his many hobbies, and building and fixing whatever anyone needed. Most of all he loved his family...and his family loved him so very much! He was the best husband, dad, G-pap and friend...he lived everyday for his family and we are all better people because he was an important part of our lives. He will be greatly missed, but the many beautiful memories we have will live on forever.

    I am glad Bob made Lois feel so special as they did everything together. I'll miss all the chats we had and bringing you your lunch. I know you are watching down on all those you love helping God keep them safe. You will be missed. Love, Helen
