Robert (Bobby) E. Tomcho of Chester entered into rest on Sunday, May 30, 2021, at Garnet Health Medical Center in the Town of Wallkill. He was 42.

The chosen-with-love son of Marie Nowicki Tomcho and Edward C. Tomcho, he was born on Dec. 24, 1978.

He is survived by the love of his life whom he married on Oct. 13, 2018, Christine Aiello Tomcho, who is comforting and being comforted by their faithful fur-baby, Miller. Although their time as husband and wife was cut short, theirs is a love that will surely transcend time.

Also left behind to mourn him are his siblings: sister Sandra Marie Tomcho Dunlop (Michael) and brother Edward E. Tomcho (Sandra).

Through his union in marriage Bobby expanded his family to include his mother-in-love Joan Aiello; sister-in-love Kelley Alves (Carlos); and sister-in-love Danielle Mejia (Jonathan). Bobby was gifted in so many ways and was always a child at heart. He enjoyed being a fun-loving uncle to niece Jamie Lennox (Anthony); nephew Jesse Alves (Jenna); his inseparable lawn-mowing partner nephew Maximus Mejia; great nieces Danika and Ariella; and great-nephew Kanaan. He will be forever missed by several aunts, uncles, cousins and many loyal friends whom he loved and treated like family.

Visitation was held June 3 at T.S. Purta Funeral Home, 22 Glenmere Ave., Florida.

A Funeral Mass was held June 4 at St. Joseph Church in Florida.

A private cremation followed the services.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the T.S. Purta Funeral Home
