Robert J. DiToto, successful businessman

Robert J. DiToto, 62, of Rehoboth Beach, passed away peacefully on August 23, 2022, after a years-long struggle with dementia praecox (FTD). He was born in Washington, DC on March 17, 1960, the son of Emil and Teresa DiToto.

Bob grew up in College Park, Md., and graduated from High Point High School in Beltsville, Md. He attended the University of Maryland and Temple School, earning a degree in accounting. Early in his career, he worked as an administrator for a professional association, a medical service provider and a court reporting agency.

In 1994, Bob chose to follow his dream and moved to Rehoboth Beach, where he and his partner opened the Kitchen Tune-Up kitchen remodeling business. Bob had a keen eye for design and a real knack for executing complex projects. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for his clients. As a result, his company received the National Customer Service Award from the head office. He also served on numerous think tanks as well as on the board of Kitchen Tune-Up, where he eventually became vice-chairman. His leadership skills have also led to the company being recognized and awarded as the best kitchen development in the country. After 23 years of successfully running an award-winning company, Bob’s illness prevented him from fulfilling his professional responsibilities and retired in 2018.

Bob was, without a doubt, a shining light wherever he went. His warm, friendly, cheerful personality and contagious laughter made him the go-to person for any gathering. Her compassion for those less fortunate or neglected has become her trademark, both personally and professionally. Bob was also known for his passionate opinions on national issues. He never hesitated to share them with his willing and less willing listeners. He was never vague. His pointed opinions left no one wondering. You always knew where Bob was.

Bob was predeceased by his father Emil, who died in 2005. He is survived by his mother, Teresa; brother, Perry (Patty) DiToto; niece, Shannon (Scott) Bates; two great-nephews, Conner and Logan; and his partner, Ron Reichert.

Final arrangements are pending and will be private.
