Robert Pisani

Obituary - Robert "Bob" Angelo Pisani November 2, 1936 - October 22, 2013 Robert Angelo Pisani passed away in his home on October 22, 2013 at the age of 76. He was born in Woodland to Angelo and Angelena Pisani of Esparto and was married to Joan Pisani in 1959 for 40 years; all three preceded him in death. Bob was a lifetime resident of Yolo County and lived in Winters for 53 years. Bob graduated from Esparto High School in 1954 and served in the Navy Reserves receiving an honorable discharge. Since 1959, Bob proudly owned and operated Pisani's Service where he was an icon and fixture at the junction of Railroad and Grant avenues until his retirement. At the station, he was known for business integrity, hard work, long hours, colorful language, and a no nonsense demeanor. Old timers might remember his faithful canine companion Fred who spent many years "at work" in the gas station. For old timers or newcomers, the corner of Railroad and Grant is better than any car navigation system to orient oneself to Winters and Highway 128. The gas station remains in the family. Bob was an avid outdoorsman. In his early years he enjoyed hunting deer, often traveling to the Rocky Mountains (Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado) with his hunting buddies. Later in life he took up sport fishing with many fishing friends, participating in many and winning a few bass tournaments. With his longtime friend Johnny Ramos, he traveled to Mexico several times to try to "catch the big (or at least the elusive) one". His favorite sports teams were the San Francisco 49'ers and San Francisco Giants and he followed Winters sports. A sport of another sort that he enjoyed was drinking coffee, rolling for the check with the group of coffee drinkers (local businessmen and farmers), playing cards (particularly as a member of the Elk's Club), politics (serving as a Winters City councilman) and more recently gaming at Cache Creek. Bob is survived by his sister Louise Taylor and her husband Jim of Vancouver, Washington. Also surviving him are his four sons and their families: Jim and Jennifer Pisani of Roseville and children Nick, Amber, and Kristen; Bob and Gwen Pisani of Winters and children David, Kevin, Dominic, and Kristopher; Mike and Jana Pisani of Paris, Michigan and their children William, Carina and Geoffrey; and Larry and Teresa Pisani of Winters and their children Shelby and Andrew. He is also survived by three great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Bob loved Winters, Yolo County, and his family, and he will be missed by many. A Rosary will be held at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Winters Monday, October 28th at 7:00 PM with visitation from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM and a morning graveside service and internment to be held on Tuesday, October 29th at 11:00 AM at the Winters Cemetery. Father Michael Hebda will officiate at the services. Pallbearers will be David, Kevin, Dominic, Kristopher, Geoffrey and Andrew Pisani
