Robert "Bobby" Perloff


Robert "Bobby" Perloff, 90, of Ventnor, New Jersey and formerly of Northeast Philadelphia, died peacefully Sunday January 8, 2023. Bobby was adored by his many friends in Philly, down the Shore and in the record business. He loved talking to people to find out what they were about and looked forward to regular Thursday dinner with the guys. He would wake up every day and look at the ocean from the window of his condo. He loved all kinds of music, the Eagles, the Sixers, Villanova basketball, sending bitmojis for every holiday, playing tennis and holding court on the Ventnor Boardwalk in front of the Oxford. He was a regular bike rider on the Boardwalk and on his exercise bike, which he rode for two hours a day (40 songs, three minutes each). He was the longtime general manager of Universal One-Stop in Philadelphia, buying from the major record companies to sell to the smaller mom and pop stores. For years, he and his friends in the record industry would gather monthly at the Tiffany Diner to joke and relive the memories. He is survived by his daughter, Sue Perloff; brother-in-law Malcolm Segal; grandchildren Joshua, Hannah, and Shira; nieces Tracy Kaplan (Chuck); Ellen Mass (Ellis), Wendy McGarry, and Jill Wolfson. He was a great uncle to Rob (Lia), Jamie, Liam, Jacob, Pearl, Cara, Sean, Brianna, Alex (Lucy) and Gwen (Cori). He is predeceased by his wife, Geraldine "Gerry" Perloff (nee Segal), and his son, Jay Perloff (Michele).
