CUMMINGS, Robert “Bob”, beloved son of the late John and Audrey Cummings, loving brother of John (Renee) Cummings, Jr., and James (Karen) Cummings, dear uncle of Melissa, Michael and the late Matthew Cummings, Sean Cummings, Jaime Hale and Kevin Cummings, close family friend of Dorothy Ryan. Bob had worked in the Motion Picture Industry for the last 39 years. Suddenly, Saturday, April 3, 2010, age 57. Friends may call at the Hodapp Funeral Home, 6041 Hamilton Ave., College Hill, Wednesday 5-8 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial at St. Margaret Mary Church, 1830 W. Galbraith Rd., N.C.H., Thursday 1 p.m. Memorials may be made to the American Heart Association.
Mr. Cummings made the decision to take me from the Eastgate Showcase to the construction trailer at Kings Island. He then promoted me to manager. He had high expectations. He teased with a straight face, then would give a grin. I enjoyed my time working with him. My sympathies go out to his family and friends.
I’ll never forget what Bob did when my family and I was in a collision at the Springdale theater back in 2005.
Being the first on the scene, he calmed down our then 18 month old daughter and let her sleep in the backseat of his car. Knowing that she was covered with glass until the ambulances arrived.
He would go out of his way to help you. He will be missed.
I never worked directly with Bob at the cinemas, but came to know him once I was promoted to House Manager at another location and would see him at various citywide meetings that would be held. I particularly enjoyed a lunch that we shared together after a meeting at Florence CDL once — he was so welcoming, gracious and kind.
To his brother Jim, please know that my heart truly goes out to you in your loss. You are both good men.
Heartfelt sympathies from my husband and myself. We’ll be thinking of you and your family.
I spend many years working with Mr. Cummings. He thought me how to be a manager, and how to make decisions that would stick with me for the rest of my life. Over the years that we worked together, we did not always agree. However, he took the time to sit down with me and discuss the problem. Even when he thought I was dead wrong, he would still let me talk it out and offer a solution. When I was not working in the same building, I would go to him and ask for advice because I knew he would be willing to help
Bob, you were always interested in what was going on in my life. You were always willing to listen to my problems and offer advice even when it had nothing to do with work. I know that the time I spent with you has made me a successful school teacher.
You showed me that your boss can be your friend. I will miss you Bob.
Just wanted to express my condolences. Mr. Cummings was my boss many years ago at the Loews movie theater. Many of us were in high school and I have no idea how he tolerated us! I have thought of you often through the years, and you will be missed BC.
BC, you gave me my first job and taught me so much during the time I worked with you. You will be missed.
I’ll never forget spending easter at work and then finding out that you bought all of us dinner for being there. It was something special that you did for us that you didn’t have to do.
I’ll miss you Mr. Cummings
