This beautiful tribute came with the photo from Mary….
“There is nothing really special about this photo – it’s Bob and my oldest son (far right). Bob coached all of our kids at one time or another. This photo was in the fall of 2004.
Each one of my kids would come home after practices or games and say “Coach Cipriano likes me the best on the team”, OR “I’m really lucky ’cause coach has me playing the best position on the team”.
Didn’t matter if my daughter was playing down low on the basketball court on his intramural team, or my son was playing goalie on the soccer field – they were Bob’s favorite.
For the first couple of kids, I thought that it was because I had passed on some fabulous genes to my children. (nope)
But as time went on, I realized it was Bob. Bob made each child feel so special – and no matter what type of athletic ability they had, Bob made them feel very important on the team.
As my family mourned Bob, my youngest son (who Bob coached soccer just last year at Fabian), announced that he had been Coach Cipriano’s favorite on the team. My oldest son piped right in “What a coincidence, I was Coach Cipriano’s favorite too!”.”
I just smiled, because I knew the mark Bob made on the kids he coached.
