Robert T. Costello

Robert (Bob) Costello, 72, passed away peacefully on October 29, 2022 at his home in Philadelphia, PA.

Beloved husband of 31 years to Kathryn (nee Adams).  Together they created a large, blended family comprised by children Tracie, Frank, Jennifer (Billy), Michael (Joanna), Cathy (Kurt) and Robert Jr.  Bob was a loving grandfather to 17 grandchildren; Alexis, Kaitlyn, Deanna, Kurt, Isabella, Lauralyn, Alex, Vinny, Shannon, Patrick, Mary Kate, Michael, Sean, Daniel, Justin, Kirsten, Shane, and two great-grandchildren, Kain and Avery.  Bob is also survived by his youngest brother, Anthony (Diane).

Bob loved his Philly sports teams and would loudly cheer and complain about them in equal measure.  In younger years, he and Kathy enjoyed entertaining at home where friends and family gathered regularly.  Bob was comforted by his loyal cat, Feetz, as his health declined in recent years.
