Family & friends are invited to attend a Memorial Funeral Mass on Thursday, September 22nd at 10:00 a.m. in the Church of the Sacredincerto-robert Heart, 45 Brooks St., East Boston, followed by interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett. Bobby, as he was affectionately known, died on Tuesday, September 13th at Boston’s Mass General Hospital, following being stricken at his East Boston home.

Born in Boston, Bobby lived in East Boston all his life. He attended Sacred Heart Grammar School in East Boston and was a 1961 alumnus of Domenic Savio High School, East Boston. He joined the Coast Guard in October of 1965 & served until October of 1969. For over 39 years, Bobby worked for Suffolk Downs as an Admissions Manager. In 2008, after suffering a major Cerebral Vascular Accident (Stroke), he was forced into retirement. His passion for life & activity continued until the day God called him home. From the time of elementary school, continuing onto his senior years, Bobby held a unique passion for trains, and American History. At his Prescott Street residence, in the basement, Bobby created vignettes, relating to specific battle sites of the Civil War. His genuine mastery & brilliance in building, actual set-up design etc. was superb. His display became legendary & soon Bobby was a member of many & all Train Clubs, throughout the country. Over the years, Bobby became an often photo’d news item in the Boston Globe & the Boston Herald. The Harvard Train Club of Cambridge was also a long-time interest of Bobby’s work and hobby. After his subsequent stroke, he was unable to maintain his interest and the vignettes were dismantled.

He was the beloved son of the late Virgilio & Adeline “Lena” (Carrozza) Incerto. Many dear cousins also survive Bobby. He was the cherished nephew to Frances D. DiPlacidio & her husband John of West Palm Beach, Fl., Rose Carozza of Wilmington & the late Mildred E. Rodriguez, Lesandrina “Sandra” Russo, & Bridget Pisano & the late Domistchiles “Mico”, John “Panco”, Enrico “Eastago”, Elio “Leo”, Nicholas J., Ralph, & David Carrozza. Also lovingly survived by his devoted & faithful life-partner & care-giver, David F. St. Laurent of East Boston, with whom “Bobby” made his home. David’s Mom, Corinne (Erickson) St. Laurent of East Boston also survives him.
