Robert J. Motto, 79, of Boyertown, passed away on April 28, 2020 after a short but brave battle with cancer.

Born in Bayshore, NY, he was the son of the late Joseph and Mary (LaVista) Motto.

After being honorably discharged he began his career with Merk Sharpe & Dohme as a field engineer for many years before retiring.

In his spare time, Robert enjoyed photography, playing poker and watching baseball. He also had a deep love for animals, and was known to give monetary donations to many different animal foundations and organizations.

Surviving are his wife, Michelle Motto of Red Hill; two sons, Joseph Motto and wife, Jennifer of East Greenville and Adam Motto of Pennsburg; two grandchildren, Marilyn and Alex Motto; two great-grandchildren, Maxwell and Gracelynn Motto; his twin sister, Anne Gorman and husband, Thomas “Buzz”; and his brother, Nicholas Motto and wife, Mary.

I am so shocked to read of Bob's passing. I am his cousin, Jeanne M. Roccaro and celebrated many holidays with Bob before his departing Long Island, NY. My thoughts and prayers are with all my cousins at this time.

As Bob's first wife and mother of his children, I have many fond memories of him. We met at Brookhaven National Lab in Upton, NY where we both had our first professional jobs, him after exiting the Marine Corps and me after high school graduation. Our marriage in 1968 lasted through many ups and downs, but our best work was the birth and raising of our two sons Joseph and Adam Motto. We each eventually found our own path to happiness. Bob was extremely proud of his family. I know they will miss him.
