Robert (Bob) Francis McStay passed away in his home in Corsicana Texas on March 26, 2020 at the age of 77. Bob is survived by his wife Linda, son Rob McStay and his wife Rosie of Houston, daughter Kate Daggett and her husband Jim of Double Oak, grandchildren Jackson, Dylan, Cole and Joshua, and sister Nancy Gorczyca of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey. He is preceded in death by his parents Francis and Gertrude, and his siblings Francis, James, Jack, and Mary Ann.
Bob was born on June 4, 1942 in Bayonne, New Jersey. He graduated from Cranford High School in 1960 and attended Fairleigh Dickinson University. Bob and Linda, high school sweethearts, were married for 53 years. Bob and Linda lived in New Jersey until 1981, before moving to Texas, and then to Indiana in 1989. They returned to Texas to Richland Chambers Lake in 2005 to spend time with their grandchildren. Bob was truly one of a kind. He was beloved for his wit, compassion and the ability to make everyone around him smile. He was a lifelong optimist, who overcame every hardship with inspiration and resolve. Bob’s greatest joy was his family, and he was immensely proud of his children and grandchildren. Bob was also a hard worker, and a man of true integrity. He spent his entire career in sales with Acme Metals, retiring as a vice-president. His most enduring gift was his ability to make everyone around him happy to be alive. He no doubt entered Heaven wearing rose-colored glasses. Bob will be missed by many, he was not only a beloved husband, father and grandfather but also an amazing brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great uncle and friend. A memorial service will be held at a later date, as the result of restrictions arising at this difficult time in our nation.
In Bob’s own words, he desired to “go through life with a smile on my face, a twinkle in my eye and to keep howling at the moon.”

Linda-I am sorry to hear of Bob's passing! I am just seeing this and was shocked. It doesn't seem so long ago we were enjoying shows at the Palace. Bob was always such a pleasant person to be around. I always enjoye seeing him when I was out at the house. Take care and know you and the family are in my prayers. Homer

Bob was a great friend and I loved playing golf with him. He would alway thank me and tell me to continue to work to help keep his social security check coming. I always got a kick out of that. But the best memory was at lunch at the goat club. The guys use to meet at Joe Stevens mental building on 287 and have lunch on Fridays, sometimes 20 plus. We would play poker after lunch and if you new Bob you new he was good and lucky at cards. Well I set him up one day with a guy named Al. Al was a little guy but had a very serious stare. I told Al to tell Bob that I had told him about “Chicago Bob” the card shark from Chicago. Well next time they played Bob had a winning hand and was betting like it. Well Al looked over at him with his stare and said Bob Cappallo told us about “Chicago Bob” the card shark from Chicago. Well his stare and the way he said it was so convincing Bob fold his winning hand. After the game Al told him it was a joke but I’m not sure Bob totally believe him until I told him the whole story. Bob talked about that card game a lot and how he was truly scared. But it was all in fun and we laughed about it many times. But the name “Chicago Bob” stuck. I know now that Al, Joe and he are looking down smiling at us as they play poker. Rest In Peace my friend!
