The blogger known as Bob Belvedere died last Friday at his home in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. Back in the day, circa 2009-2012, when I was a road warrior on the campaign trail, I’d speak to Bob by phone whenever I was in that area, covering first the Scott Brown campaign for Senate and later the various presidential candidates in New Hampshire. Somehow, we never were able to meet in person, but Bob was a friend anyway, as these things go, and Ms. EBL informed us of his death, at age 60:

FULCHINO, Gregory William Robert Of Tewksbury, formerly of Everett passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer on Friday, February 11, 2022 at his home. He was a good husband to his loving wife Darlene Marie (Pratt) Fulchino, with whom he celebrated his twenty-second wedding anniversary in October. He was a son of the late Salvatore Fulchino and the late Wilma E. (Palmore) Fulchino, he was born on December 19,1961 in Everett. He grew up and was educated in Everett, and he graduated from Everett High School with the class of 1978. He made his home in Everett, and for over thirty years he worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Office of the Jury Commissioner as an IT Manager. He was a solid American, generous and sincere, he was gifted artistically in his music, and writing. In his younger days he was a member of a band, and he never let go of a firm belief that there was a great writer within him waiting to burst forth. This writer came out under the stage name Bob Belvedere, he published books and for many years a well established conservative blog “The Camp of the Saints”. In addition to his wife Darlene, he is survived by his brother, Stephen A. Fulchino, wife Barbara; niece Kelly and Cynthina and their husbands Josh and Dan, and 3 great nephews, Peter, Malcoml and Sebastian; his sister-in-law Debra Sabbagh, husband Phillip; Niece, Stacey Ann Leray, husband Eric, great-nieces, Shelby and Sophie Leray; great-grand nephew, Luca Leray; two cousins, Al Fulchino and his wife Susan, and Andy Fulchino and his wife Cookie, and their families.
