Wonderful memories of Bob with a big smile waving enthusiastically on cruises and waving to Evelyn as he and Jay headed out on the lake.
Bob loved his family including his two brothers. I remember the three brothers working together to plant green beans at Jay’s-those beans must have been really good as rabbits ate them all.
What a loving & thoughtful man he was!

We have been blessed to know and consider the Gaspers our friends for 47 years. In all that time I have never, even once, seen Bob in anyway but kind and pleasant. He was an amazing friend. We will miss Bobs ready smile and pleasant demeanor. He was an amazing man. Always ready to be there when needed, to laugh at jokes and share his love and message of hope as a minister. I will miss Bob
