  1. This is a sad story. I personally knew the man and helped take of him. This was MY GUY! He was currently living in the Bridgeport area of Chicago. Originally he is from Brooklyn, New York. He was a good friend of my Mother's. I hope the Police help solve this case and I will help in any way possible. If you would like to get a picture of him please email me. He was know as the Florida FisherMan! Before he came to Bridgeport he resided in Florida with his Mother. His father and mother seperated and his father was in New York when they went to Florida. His father was a big figure with the Teamster's union in his time.
    I remember plenty of stories This man told me! His full name was Robert M. Felice and will be missed dearly by many and will never be forgotten. He is survived by two son's that live in Florida to this day. Which do not even know about their father death. Robert Jr. & Anthony, which whom I never met. The Florida FisherMan lived a particular life and was not supported by many. Regardless of this man's back ground or personal characteristic's, HE WAS KILLED! By a person who is scared to take a violation and responsibilty of their action's. My heart is hurt because of this! His birthday is OCTOBER 26. Robert Felice was 65 years old the day he was killed. He has no money and no support. i am looking to contact his son's but if all fail's I will be looking to put up the money to give him a proper fairwell. My heart goes out to him and his family and anyone ever affected by a situation such as a hit in run! Please come foward with any information....

  2. Thank you for this information. I am very sorry that you lost a good friend and his sons lost their father. I would appreciate a photo of Robert which I would be happy to post.
