Bob's wife, Kelly, recently shared a touching tribute to her late husband.

Kelly Rizzo was married to Bob for four years, and marked the month since he died with a tribute to him on Instagram. The video shows them eating out at various restaurants because, according to the caption, they were in their "happy place" whenever they were out at a restaurant together, in a hotel lobby bar, or even just their own kitchen when Kelly would "try out a new creation on [Bob]." One of the things that brought them together was their mutual love of food.

Kelly also shared something Bob used to tell her which was, "life is hard, we need to enjoy it as much as possible." Not only did Bob enjoy trying new cuisines with Kelly, he always encouraged everyone to order everything on the menu that they wanted. "He wanted to see you enjoy everything to the fullest," Kelly said. That's the kind of person he was — happiest when others were happy.
