Veteran Drag Racer Bobby Lagana Sr. Passes




Bobby Lagana Sr.
January 6, 1941 - September 5, 2013
Caring Husband, Loving Father, Devoted Son, Honorable Friend, Dedicated Automotive Mechanic, and last but not least, a Hardcore Drag Racer - All attributes of the late Bobby Lagana Sr.

Bobby Lagana Sr.'s world revolved around his kids, and for him it meant bringing them up at the racetrack. Bobby Sr. was all about keeping his word, and teaching his kids the value of family and true friendship. Bobby Sr. would never refuse anyone in need and would drop anything to help even a stranger.

Bobby Sr. lost his first daughter, Dinah, at 10 years old; he then had four more kids with wife Marie and raised them in Dinah's honor. Bobby and Marie made sure their kids wanted for nothing and lived for everything. Marie passed away in 2000 after a short battle with Cancer. Through all the good times and bad times, Bobby enjoyed life to the fullest and has four great kids to live in his honor.

In lieu of flowers, the Lagana family asks that support of a charity close to Bobby Sr.'s heart be remembered: D.R.A.W. (drawfasthelp.org). Bobby Sr. knew firsthand the power of D.R.A.W. and would never forget the assistance his family received from them.
