It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Robert M. Magaw, 34 of Wilmington, Delaware on Monday, August 24, 2020.

Bobby was born on November 14, 1985.  As a young boy, he had a passion for playing sports, especially baseball and football.  Bobby graduated from St. Elizabeth High School where he played football all four years and graduated from the University of Delaware.  He was employed with Bank of America as a Global Finance Crimes Compliance Investigator.  Bobby's love of sports led him to show his endless support for the Eagles, Phillies, and Flyers but most of all, he was a passionate Notre Dame football fan and started to have dreams that one day his daughter would go to Notre Dame.

Bobby will be dearly missed by the love of his life, his wife of seven years, Alison Mazzetti Magaw and his precious nine month old daughter, Emilia Mary; his parents, Robert G. Jr. and Linda (O'Donnell) Magaw; his sister, Amanda Magaw and sadly, predeceased by his sister, Laura Magaw in 2001.  His memory will be cherished by a host of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends, and step-grandfather, Howie Stoltenberg.

Bobby was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Robert G. Sr. and Doris Magaw; his maternal grandmother, Catherine Stoltenberg; his godmother, Anne Marie Thawley; and his in-laws, Robert, Mary and Michael Mazzetti. 

Funeral services and interment will be held privately for members of the immediate family.
