Robert Joseph Bertino, husband of Beverly Bertino of Hanahan, SC transitioned on March 3, 2021 after a brief illness.

Bob was born in Geneva NY on May 21, 1958 to Joseph Bertino and Alice (Tiaballi) Bertino. In addition to his wife Beverly , he is survived by a brother Bud (Patty) Bertino of Scotia NY and a sister, Elizabeth (Roy) Melms of Bonneau SC; nieces and nephews, Heather (Mike) Melms Matteus and new baby Anna Kate, Brittany Melms (Mike Weisman), Karen (Matt) Bertino and their daughter Lucy, Victoria Bertino Randall and her children Luke, Madeline and Camille, David (Jennifer) Bertino and their children Zoe, Alicia and Devin, and a dear step-father George Sinclair Belleview, FL. He was preceded in death by his father and mother.

Bob graduated from Geneva High School and was educated at Eastman School of Music. He was the proud owner of Scarlett's restaurant in Geneva, NY before moving to Charleston SC where he met his wife of 30 years on a blind date. Absolutely the love of his life -they were never separated after that first night. Bob had a brilliant mind, a quick wit, a sharp business acumen and loved the underdog. As the owner of Crazy Bob's Electronic's on Rivers Avenue, he had a loyal following of clients and customers of whom he was very appreciative - you gave him purpose. Bob was instrumental in mentoring many people over his years in business and was not afraid to take on the "big" guys. His unique personality will be missed by his many, many friends across the country.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Jenkins Institute for Children (www.jenkinsinstitute.org ), N. Charleston SC in memory of Bob Bertino.
To Bob's loyal customers, if you knew Bob, you know he would not abandon you. Referral information will be posted on the store window soon.

To honor Bob there will be a service at Stuhr Funeral Home, Northwoods Chapel 2180 Greenridge Road North Charleston SC 29406 from 12 noon to 4 pm on Saturday, March 13, 2021. Please bring a letter (include your address please) for Beverly of your experience with Bob - good, bad, happy or sad - this will comfort her in the months to come. You can also mail it to Crazy Bob's Electronics 8410 Rivers Ave Ste. A North Charleston SC 29406.
