    With shock and sorrow I must report the loss of our dear friend Bob Dezzani. Although in fantastic health for his age (80+) he succumbed to a heart attack last Monday, November 10th while he and Francis were out for their daily walk.

    Bob was a founding member of Italian Car Club of the Southwest and also the cocreator of ItalianCarFest, along with Jerry Phillips. This year will mark the show’s 18th year thanks to the hard work and devotion of Bob. This post is simply intended to announce Bob‘s passing to those of you who may not already know. There will be more information to follow regarding his funeral arrangements.

    Please keep Francis in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and Bob, we already miss you.

    So sorry to hear this. Those shows were always fun, especially the ones by the lake.

    RIP Bob.

    RIP Bob - I never met him but he seemed like the person who put his heart and soul into everything he did. Especially with ICF.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I really respected him and his tenacity. Always working, trying to make things better and always made me feel like I was the only one in the show.

    He will certainly be missed.

    Oh Wow! I just now saw this. He was always so supportive of the 2 charity car shows I work on. Great loss to the DFW car community.
