Furthermore, he will be greatly missed by all his nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. He will be reunited with his daughter Teresa in heaven, who passed away before him. Bob loved his family very much. He was a devout Catholic who felt the call to served in the US Army in the Quartermaster Corps and was immensely patriotic. He was also an enormous UCLA fan as he was a UCLA Bruin himself. He annually looked forward to the Rose Bowl, and it's parade with the hope blue and gold would be represented. Entertainment came very naturally to him and Bob cherished touring with a local group in the Antelope Valley known as “Nuns for Fun.” Musically, he excelled at the drums, keyboard, and singing and even got to appear as Elvis or Bing Crosby from time to time. The business world was in his blood from a young age, as his family owned the “Henn Cafe” on Sepulveda Blvd in Southern California, where he enjoyed working as a young boy. He later became involved in his community through volunteering and entered the real estate industry, where he worked as an agent for over forty years. Bob had a great sense of humor and loved old classics like Laurel & Hardy, Abbott & Costello, and The Pink Panther. He had a great passion for cooking and experimented in the kitchen often. Every year he would make his infamous Thanksgiving stuffing and rum cake. Bob also had a great interest in wine and had a vast knowledge of the art of wine tasting and pairing. He desired to learn and speak new languages and study everything thing there was to know about Ireland; Saint Patrick’s Day was a favorite of his. Bob will be missed deeply by his family, friends, and peers. We love and miss you already Dad, Grandpa, and Friend!
