Robert H. Krafve Sr. 78, of Worcester son of Mabel (Joslin) and Robert Krafve, passed on February 27th surrounded by much love. A graduate of St. Stephen's High School, Bobby was very proud to enlist in the U.S. Air Force in 1960 and served thru 1964. Sports were a large part of Bobby's life. He played baseball thru High School, coaching in his 20's. Hockey and softball then became his new outlets into his 30's. Being an avid Yankee fan he battled, with his great sense of humor, 99% of his family who were avid Red Sox fans. He traveled to The Bronx to attend Yankee vs Red Sox games at both the old Yankee Stadium and the new Yankee Stadium. The teams that the family agreed upon were his and their loyalty to The New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

Krafve Jr. and his partner Rachael, Raymond Krafve and his wife Kathleen, Alyssa Charron and her husband Christopher.
