He resides in Waterbury with his companion, Ms. Jodi Capaldo; they share a busy life together traveling and enjoying family. Bob has two daughters and a grandson named Chase.
At a very young age Bob's family experienced a painful tragedy and a series of personal losses that made him all too aware of the impact of grief in the lives of the people he cared about most. The mysteries of life and death sparked his interest in funeral service. Based on his life experience early on, he chose a career path to compassionately guide families along life's journey.
Bob graduated in 1985 from New England Institute of Mortuary Science (now Mt. Ida) when it was located in Kenmore Square, Boston where the classrooms were located in the building below the iconic CITGO sign, a famous landmark. Also, classrooms overlooked the Green Monster Wall at Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
He completed his apprenticeship at John J. Ferry & Sons in Meriden. He is currently employed by Carriage Services as the Northeast-Eastern Region, Director of Support. Bob is affiliated with Funk Funeral Home in Bristol; he upholds a long-lasting relationship with the Duhaime Family.Through the years Bob has taken every opportunity to hone his business & professional skills through supplemental courses and benefited from auxiliary training in marketing, advertising, team building, leadership, goal setting, and revenue generation. He credits his personal connections with employers and colleagues as an important resource for enhancing his continued professional growth. "Every challenge and every goal met is another learning experience." Whether he is developing long-range market share growth strategies or enjoying his personal life, Bob Muccino aspires to embrace the many changes we encounter in life, look toward the light and offer clear insightful direction, collectively, with others along the journey.
Bob and Jodi were delighted to share the Annual Meeting Installation and Banquet with family, including Bob's daughter Lauren and her husband Josh, his daughter Madison and her boyfriend AJ, his sister and brother-in-law, Shelly and Joe and his parents Robert, Sr. and Joan Muccino who returned to Connecticut from their home in Florida to celebrate with their son who has worked especially hard to ascend to the presidency of an organization that values "Public Awareness, Education, Advocacy and High Ethical Standards."
