Bob attended Boston Technical High School, matriculated to Boston College, and received his MBA from Northeastern University. He worked for years in the financial services industry as a Chief Financial Officer and later enjoyed teaching finance at Boston College. Bob met his wonderful wife of 49 years, Andrea Santoususso Foley (Andy), at Boston College Freshman Orientation in September of 1967. A highlight of his life was watching his two children follow in his and Andy’s footsteps by attending Boston College (Bobby ’01 and Caitlin ’05).

Loving father to Robert Ewing Foley, III (Bobby) and his husband Anthony Arena-Foley of Quincy, MA, and Caitlin Chiacchia and her husband Lt. Col. (Ret.) James Chiacchia of Georgetown, TX.

Foley and his wife Linda Such Foley of Enfield, CT, Margaret (Meg) VanCisin and the late Kevin T. VanCisin of West Roxbury, MA, and David A. Foley and his husband Michael Loshaw of Hull, MA. Bob is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and fellow alumni.
