Bob Crimo biography: 13 things about Highwood, Illinois business owner

Advertisements

Robert E. “Bob” Crimo II is a white man from Highwood, Illinois, United States. Here are 13 more things about him:

  1. He and his brother Paul Crimo share their father’s house in Highwood. Aside from Highwood, he has lived in other parts of Illinois including Highland Park and Buffalo Grove. His estranged wife Denise Marie Pesina Crimo lives in their house in Highland Park. They have one daughter and two sons together.
  2. As a small business owner, he has been self-employed since 1990 when he started running a convenience store called White Hen Pantry in Ravinia, Highland Park.
  3. In 2000, Denise gave birth to their second child Robert Eugene “Bobby” Crimo III, who went on to become a rapper called Awake the Rapper.
  4. In 2007, 7-Eleven acquired his business White Hen Pantry. In 2008, he opened a coffee shop in Highland Park called Bob’s Pantry & Deli.
  5. On January 4, 2010, his mother Christine Caldarelli Crimo died at the age of 72. In 2010, he accused Denise of hitting him with a screwdriver on the left forearm but he recanted once he got to the police station.
  6. He was one of the five candidates vying for three Highland Park City Council seats on April 9, 2013, which were won by Dan Kaufman, Kim Stone and Alyssa Knobel. On March 19, 2013, Patch columnist Ed Brill wrote, “Crimo appears on a few signs around town, but thus far, not in real life – he hasn’t returned calls from Patch, didn’t show at the League of Women Voters, and has no website nor Facebook page. Clearly this is not a serious candidacy.”
  7. In a Chicago Tribune article published on June 19, 2013, he talked about Bob’s Pantry & Deli. He told the publication, “I am a people person. Interpersonal interactions are extremely important to me, and this venue allows me to have those interactions while providing a unique service to Highland Park and the surrounding communities.”
  8. On October 26, 2018, his father Robert “Bob” Crimo Sr. died at the age of 88 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. On November 28, 2018, he took to Facebook to announce that he was officially on the ballot for the 2019 mayoral seat of Highland Park. In late 2018, a lender sued him and Bob’s Pantry & Deli, alleging he owed more than $764,000. In March 2019, a judge ruled in the lender’s favor by default after he failed to appear in court.
  9. Running for Highland Park mayor, he lost to Nancy Rotering in 2019. On April 3, 2019, he wrote on Facebook, “This has been a great experience. I cannot thank my supporters enough. Although the polls weren’t in my favor, I will continue to do my best to further the improvement of Highland Park for my fellow neighbors. Thank you all so much again.”
  10. In December 2019, he sponsored his son Bobby’s application for a firearm owners identification (FOID) card. In the same month, HSBC Bank filed for foreclosure on his house in Highland Park, alleging he owed more than $460,000. In May 2022, a judge granted him a full waiver of court fees after he appeared in person and provided proof that he was receiving food stamps. On July 7, 2022, he filed a motion to block foreclosure of the house.
  11. In July 2020, he stopped making payments to NewRez LLC, according to the mortgage servicing company. In April 2022, the company filed to foreclose on a property he owns in Highwood, alleging he owed more than $197,000.
  12. On Twitter, he followed just one account, an archived account of 45th U.S. president Donald Trump. On May 27, 2022, he liked a tweet that read, “Protect the Second Amendment like your life depends on it.” On June 7, 2022, he wrote on Facebook, “It’s been brought to my attention that my account may have been hacked. Please do not accept any friend requests from me.”
  13. On the evening of July 3, 2022, he and his son Bobby talked about the mass shooting that happened that night in Denmark. Bobby called the gunman, then 22, an idiot, he told New York Post. He was 57 years old when Bobby opened fire on July 4, 2022 after a Fourth of July parade began in Highland Park, killing seven people and injuring 38 others. After the shooting, he and Denise retained Steven Greenberg as their lawyer.

  1. His dad sounds like a stand up guy. Too bad he was too busy with politics to see his son is spinning out of control. I bet he’s also pro death penalty. Most people pro gun are also for the death penalty. I am one of them. They need to bring back the electric chair for these mass shooters. Maybe then they might think before action. There’s no consequence in America that serves justice for crimes like this. Premeditated, cold blooded, pussy ass bullshit. Burn in hell you piece of shit bobby.

  2. The Police & Society Leaders Seem To Be Puzzled & Confused About How To STOP The Shootings. Observe — Most Shooting Incidents Are Done By Mentally Ill Persons (MIP). So FIRST, let us start with The LAME & Antiquated LAWS that only protect The MIP’s !!! Many People have NO IDEA how Difficult it is for a Family to get an MIP into a Hospital to get Help & Treatment — Against Their Will. Many People who have Mental Illness are In Denial + refuse to take ANY Medication+ Refuse to go to ANY type of Hospital to get the proper Treatment they desperately need. So Families are STUCK to SUFFER IN LIFE with a Mentally Ill Family Member. It’s NO Party — I can Guarantee you that. Per LAW — only 2X SLIM Chances exist for a Family to put MIP into a Hospital Against Their Will:
    1) If they Harm Themselves or Another Person.
    2) If Well Being Check is done on MIP by The Police + IF Police notice any Abnormal Behaviour — then they can call Paramedics + take MIP to The Hospital + Family Member can FINALLY Sign Papers to get MIP Admitted — Against Their Will. SO THAT IS IT !! THOSE ARE YOUR 2X LAME & LEGAL CHOICES !! SCARY — HUH ?? So Police + The LAW + Society does NOTHING to get MIP’s properly Medicated + Under Control !!! SECOND — Society needs to more closely Monitor ALL Social Media + any Violent Photos + Videos posted by Sicko MIP’s. Such Posts speak LOUD & CLEAR As Warning Signs. Social Media Accounts need to get Suspended OR Shut Down + Examined For Any Person that posts Violent Subject Matter. AMEN !!!!!

    • It’s a mental illness issue. Interesting does that depend on your ZIP CODE because I do not see that same sentiment being shared when the crime happens 30-40 miles south. I mean it is more than a fair question to ask.

They just need to change the loss we need to go back to our grandfather days and Rule with an iron fist everybody’s super educated now and look where it’s getting us nowhere we need to clean up the TV there’s too much garbage on TV.

    • The problem with your DEATH PENALTY theory is that it is UNEQUIVOCALLY A FLAWED SYSTEM which has been proven way too many times over. That LAW has killed a large number of innocent people based on FALSE TESTIMONIES PROSECUTOR MISCONDUCT AND WITHHELD EVEIDENCE. That at the end of the day doesnt hold any JUDGE PROSECUTOR COP OR FALSE WITNESSES ACCOUNTABLE. They get to have a MURDER ON THEIR HAND AND GO HOME. Now i will stand with you 1000% percent of PROSECUTOR IMMUNITY IS LIFTED. Because then PEOPLE would think twice about not being 100% with the evidence if they could be charged with MURDER themselves.

  8. Meanwhile we keep allowing the purchase of assault weapons…police and military personnel have to take a psychological to use a weapon…and yet because these men equate weapons with the size of their penis…there are no questions asked (unless you are a POC).

  9. The cell phone and internet has led people to expect immediate answers to everything, and the immediate response becomes a way of life. Everyone wants immediate fifteen minutes of fame or an answer in a second. There should be one day a week all phones, TV, Internet connections are shut off for three hours, with only emergency messages allowed. A good time would be from 10:00AM to 1:00pm on Saturday.

  10. I see a whole lot of DEFLECTING AND TRYING TO PLACE BLAME everywhere else because the CULPRIT does not fit what you deem a criminal. The fact is that the whole WHOLESOME NO CRIME COMMUNITY theory is no good here. See you cant blame PEOPLE FROM CHICAGO on this one. This is your community and the criminal looks like the racial make up of that community. Yes it can happen in HIGHLAND PARK. So are you going to continue to be only scared of BLACK PEOPLE as the media will have you think. Meanwhile just ignore little TIMMY he is just having a hard time, he will get through it or it’s just a phase he’s from a good home. KEEP PUTTING THEM BLINDERS ON in ignorance and unfortunately we will see more of these and yes 90% of the perpetrators are NOT BLACK as you’ve seen. Maybe you guys need to take a hard look at your community so you can prevent this type of thing from happening. FYI STAY OFF FOX NEWS as TUCKY CARLSON AND THE LIKE are blaming everyone and defending this lunatic as to why he did the crime
