PUCCINELLI, Robert (Rob) - April 18; age 54. Husband of Sandra (Giammattei); devoted father to Genevieve, Savanna and Vienna. Beloved brother of Donna Kenihan (Tom) and Dante Puccinelli (Kristen); brother in law of Joyce Giammattei (Dex). Cherished uncle of Ryan (Keah), Shane & Anthony Kenihan, Michaela, Gina & Francesca Puccinelli, Sedona & Moreya Howell. So loved by his mother-in-law Lynn Giammattei, father-in-law Joe Giammattei and Rob's father's wife, Roberta Hamilton Puccinelli. Predeceased by his parents, Richard & Rosemarie.

Rob was a San Francisco native, graduate of St. Brendan's Grammar School and Saint Ignatius College Prep and his beloved University of Southern California. At the time of his passing, Rob was the CEO of California Parking Company. Having grown up in the parking business, Rob began his career at California Parking in 1988, where he was instrumental in starting and developing the Special Event and Valet Division. Starting from scratch, through dedication and hard work, Rob built the Valet Division to become one of the largest in the Bay Area. California Parking valets now perform at nearly one thousand events per year! Rob was very proud of this great achievement.

Rob's first priority in his life was family, especially the high school sweetheart he married and their 3 children. All conversations started with them and were followed by his other passions including: politics, sports, Porsches and USC football – Fight On!
