The limousine industry lost a good one when Robert “Bob” Verdi of Bermuda Limousine International passed away on October 27 at 85.

Those who loved Bob say that he was the type of man who held onto the friends he had, never being scared to get a laugh out of a situation or even himself. Those in the industry lucky enough to know him had nothing but respect for his success and decades of refined expertise in running a business. He also had a big heart to complement his undeniable character, and would regularly provide transportation for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and others in need.

Bermuda Limousine International began in New York City in 1941 by Bob’s father, Dominic, with a single Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special. Eventually, Dominic handed the business down to Bob, where the business experienced some of its best years. In 1987, Bob’s son, Peter, would also join the business as a third-generation family employee.

Bob’s death comes less than a year after the passing of his beloved wife, Lillian. Verdi leaves behind two sons, Paul and Peter, and their families. His funeral took place on October 31 in Bayside, N.Y.
