Born in Taunton to the late Harry and Irene (Dutra) Soares, March 25 1944. He was the loving brother (in his own way) to the late Harry Soares Jr. He is survived by his son Robert Jr. (Boo) and his wife Agnes (Arraiol) Soares. His granddaughters, Brittany Soares, and Stephanie (Soares) Lewis, her husband Justin and great granddaughters Teagan and Payton.

In the early stages of his career, he was a Local 4 Operator, and later opened JB & Son Tire. Bobby eventually collaborated with his father, who started Harry’s Cesspool in 1946, which came to be Soares Sanitation Pumping Inc. He worked beside his father and his son, instilling their family values into their work ethic for many years, one of his greatest accomplishments.
Bobby was a longtime member of the Portuguese American Civic Club. He also enjoyed card nights, NASCAR, traveling, winters in Florida, Saturday lunch with the guys, spending time with his friends and family, and Costco hot dogs.
